New Delhi, Aug 20: It’s not every day that you get a glimpse into the personal side of politicians. And a video that shows just that is now gaining popularity on social media. The father-son duo of Farooq and Omar Abdullah were caught on camera grooving to the song ‘Dama Dam Mast Qalandar’ at a wedding function and netizens cannot stop gushing over it.
A clip shared by Twitter user and journalist Jehangir Ali shows the Jammu and Kashmir National Conference president and vice-president stealing the show at a wedding with their dance moves. The Sufi song ‘Dama Dam Mast Qalandar’ is heard in the background and people at the wedding are seen dancing with vigour. Enjoying the beats, Farooq is seen clapping his hands, dancing gently and smiling at his son, who is also clapping. After a while, they link arms and go around one another, and are soon joined by others.
“Quite a performance by the father-son duo – the inimitable Dr Farooq and @OmarAbdullah.May Allah swt bless doctor saheb with many more years of healthy life,” Ali tweeted.
