Sanjeev Shrivastava alias Dabbu Uncle alias Govinda Uncle is the latest internet sensation. His dance videos have gone viral and now every media outlet is after him to extract more information about his life and hobby.

Meanwhile, he met Bollywood actor Salman Khan on the sets of Dus Ka Dum. Khan is the host of the game show. The photos from the meeting have been shared on Twitter.

Shrivastava, 46, is an assistant professor of electronics at a private engineering institute in Bhopal and his dance videos are a huge hit on social media.

In the viral video, Shrivastava is seen dancing to a song called ‘May se Meena se na Saaaqi se’ from the 1987 movie Khudgarz, starring actors Govinda and Neelam. The woman dancing coyly along with him is his wife Anjali.

Shrivastava was dancing at his brother-in-law’s wedding in Gwalior on May 12 when someone shot the video.

He hails from Vidisha in Madhya Pradesh. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, he said, “I have been dancing since 1982. Dance is a god-gifted talent in me. I was inspired by my mother Mohini Devi Shrivastava who has been a classical dancer. I have not got any formal training. I won Madhya Pradesh’s best dancer award three times in the eighties in competitions held in Bhopal.”

He is likely to dance with Khan in one of the episodes of Dus Ka Dum.
