New Zealand has quite a large population of Indian-origin people. According to a 2018 census, the number of Indian-origin people in New Zealand is over 2.3 million, making up 4.7% of the country’s population.
Bollywood has been a unifying aspect in different areas of the world.
The music has a special place in people’s hearts. Desi people and foreign nationals enjoy dancing to the music.
This is not the first time that a video of foreign nationals dancing Desi music has gone viral.
In August 2020, a group of Swiss women were seen doing the bhangra to Diljit Dosanjh’s hit track G.O.A.T.
The video was shared on Twitter by Indian Foreign Service officer Gurleen Kaur.
In the video, a group of women can be seen doing the bhangra in what appeared to be a class led by Karanvir Singh, a representative of the World Economic Forum.
The group were dancing in sync with Karanvir to the Punjabi track G.O.A.T.
Gurleen captioned the video: “When Europeans groove on Diljit Dosanjh’s G.O.A.T! Indian Bhangra in Switzerland.”
The 45-second clip quickly went viral and even caught the attention of Diljit, who retweeted it.
