Actor Hrithik Roshan, who originally danced to the song, also responded, praising the doctor for his moves and spirit.

“Tell Dr Arup I’m gonna learn his steps and dance as good as him someday in Assam. Terrific spirit,” the actor wrote on Twitter.

The performance took place in the recovery room at the Silchar Medical College & Hospital, in the presence of a few patients and a team of doctors.

“It was the last of the seven days of gruelling duty at the Covid ward,” said Dr Senapati, “We were to start our mandatory quarantine the next day — my colleagues had already told me that I must dance on the last day of my duty.”

“They were very happy,” said Dr Senapati, while talking about the response from his patients. “And so was I. I just wanted to keep the morale up. The week had been tough, the PPE is difficult to work in…while the recovery rate has improved in Assam, and things are looking better, the war is far from over, we are still working every day to beat this.”

Dr Senapati has been an avid dancer, right from his college days at the Gauhati Medical College & Hospital, taking part in several competitions and even winning a few.

Here’s how people reacted to the video which has received over a million likes on Twitter.

Earlier this year, a Mumbai-based doctor shared a video of herself dancing to the song ‘Garmi from the movie Street Dancer 3D and the clip was widely shared on social media.
