Sanjeev Srivastava, an assistant professor at Bhopal’s Bhabha Engineering Research Institute, is ruling the social media for a couple of days now. In the dance video which has gone viral on the internet, Sanjeev is seen shaking his leg to actor Govinda starrer song ‘Aapke Aa Jane Se’ from the movie ‘Khudgarz’ released in 1987.

For the 46-year-old Sanjeev, the recognition he sought as a teenager has finally found him in his middle age. He said he had never thought that a one-minute video of his dancing, that too at a family function would go viral on social media.

Sanjeev says he has learnt the dance skill from his mother and he follows the yesteryear dancing sensation Govinda in real life.

The video which is doing rounds in social media since Thursday, was shot on May 12 during the ladies sangeet of Sanjeev's brother-in-law in Gwalior.

Srivastava had to take an off from his lectures on Friday just to field calls from friends, relatives and the media. “It’s kind of crazy. Feels wonderful,” Sanjeev said.

During an interaction with news agency ANI, Sanjeev said, "This is an unreal feeling. I can't believe my dance video has gone viral. I thank everyone for the love and support. I have been dancing since 1982 and my idol is Govinda ji."

He added saying that he is hoping that more opportunities would come his way since his dance videos have become popular on the internet.

Sanjeev has garnered heaps of praises and his dance videos have become an internet sensation. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan tweeted, “Professor Sanjeev Srivastava Ji ki zindadili ne pure Bharat mein internet par tehelka macha diya hai. Mano ya na mano, Madhya Pradesh ke paani mein, kuchh toh khaas baat hai (The liveliness of professor Sanjeev Shrivastava has swept the country and internet. There is something special about Madhya Pradesh).”

Actors Raveena Tandon and Divya Dutt also praised Sanjeev on the social media.
