Nakuul and Jainil dance in skirts
Taking to Instagram, Nakuul wrote, “I found @jainil_dreamtodance on a BRUT video sashaying gloriously to Dholi Taro on the streets of New York a few months ago and was instantly drawn to his spirit and art. He apparently on the other side of the 7 seas would end his days with his daily dose of his favourite show, Bade Achhe Lagte Hain (red heart emoji). That called for a celebration to one of our favourite songs (champagne bottle emoji) #MenInSkirts.” He also added a video in which he and Jainil match steps to Hawaa Hawaa in long pink and orange skirts on a television set. The two men are wearing coordinated outfits of a white shirt, with a red scarf tied on top, and a flowing skirt. The Rockstar song is composed by AR Rahman and sung by Mohit Chauhan. It was picturised on Nargis Fakri in the Imtiaz Ali film.
Jainil replied to Nakuul’s post and said, “There was no way we could not have met & danced together!” Comedian Aditi Mittal commented, “Nakkul Mehta is the hottest man to have ever been on a TV show this is science.” One fan shared, “Two men unafraid of their masculinity.” Another fan added, “Breaking stereotypes in style and with panache. I am so so so proud of you, Nakuul. You give me joy everyday with the choices that you make. The respect that you have for the ‘art’ of all forms, shapes and kinds. Dil le lo sir (Take my heart)!”
