In a city of over 200 nationalities, cultures are represented in different forms and Priti Malik is reppin’ her Indian roots in the best possible way.
Priti Malik is a Virgin Radio presenter and also a talented dancer. Choreographing and performing Indian dances, she’s best known for bhangra routines but this one Bollywood dance is a weekend mood (and you’ll definitely recognise the song)!
Raised in New York with Indian roots, Priti is promoting South Asian culture through dance. Bhangra groups are popular in the UAE and she’s one of many who take part in the seriously uplifting form of dance.
Priti choreographed this Bollywood dance to ‘Leja Re’
The inspiration? The original ‘Leja Re’ has racked up over 446 million views
Priti mentioned in the caption her hubby Jeff asked her to choreograph a dance to the song which resulted in her own fun take on it!
It’s not the first time Priti has created an epic routine
