Now more than ever, netizens have started to notice and appreciate the various underdog artists who deserve to shine; which is one of the best things to have come out of the lockdown.
Yesterday social media was left stunned when they came across hula hoop dancer Eshna Kutty’s dance routine on ‘Genda Phool’.
She shared the video on her Instagram handle and it created a stir in no time.

Can one really flex to a song like Genda Phool which is all heart tho? This post is primarily to share with you why I put out #sareeflow as a hashtag. It had been on my mind for months, and the intention was not to create the most sensual saree videos, but to feel so comfortable and happy wearing it without the pressure of being a delicate lady. That aside, I wanted to also spotlight Indian hoopers because we're so few in number but growing so fast. Theres so much diversity in our cultures and even in our sarees that I hoped this trend would add a very unique twist to a global art form. Or visa versa- that you'd want to get yourself a hoop because you secretly want to dress up to goof around. Either case, I think it's fantastic that you're doing it anyway and sharing it âÂÂÂÂ¤ï¸ÂÂÂÂ . . . Wearing @pumaindia + mother's saree obvâÂÂÂÂ¨ . . #hoopersofinstagram #hooplife #hoopdance #hoop #hoopersofig #hooplove #flowarts #hoopflow #hulahoop #hulahooping #infinitecirclescommunity #girlswhohoop #hooper #hooping
From the very first second, Eshna had us hooked to her routine which was tough and unique. Adding to the charm and risk was her saree and hula hoop which she seamlessly incorporated in her performance.
Not just that, how much she was enjoying herself through the dance while goofing around also resonated with the audience and they couldn’t help but watch it again and again until it went viral.
The video quickly reached Twitter where it garnered massive praises. Eshna’s mother, journalist Chitra Narayanan shared the video on her twitter handle and introduced her daughter who had already gone viral by then.
The video has garnered over 5.5 lakh views on Eshna’s profile and is being widely shared. Several famous personalities also shared her video and congratulated her.

Eshna has been a vocal advocate of Indian culture and diversity and has been using #sareeflow for quite some time now. This extraordinary performance was another way to start a conversation around the cause.
