Move over Raj Kapoor, Russia has a new favourite Indian hero: Mithun Chakraborty!
We stumbled over these videos from 2012 by a group of Russian dancers that called themselves ‘Champa’. They dance to Bollywood songs and they are freakin’ awesome at it.
Jimmy Jimmy from Mithun Chakraborty’s 1982 movie, Disco Dancer is a huge favourite with them and appears on almost every performance of theirs: From a dance competition to a flash mob, Jimmy is everywhere.
Take a look at these videos and judge for yourself:
1. Roosi Jimmy Jimmy
2. Chikni Chameli!
3. Lungi Dance
4. Thoda Sa Pagla
5. Ganpati Dance
