Badshah promotes German dance cover of Tere Naal Nachna
By Bryan Durham - July 25, 2018
If it wasn’t enough that Badshah’s latest track Tere Naal Nachna (from the film Nawabzaade) made its debut on Billboard’s YouTube chart last week, one got an idea just how global an impact the Bollywood song had, when the superstar reposted a video of Alina Schumann, a girl from Erfurt, Germany dancing to the track.
If you’re the cynical sort who will say that Bollywood anyway has a footprint in Germany, consider this: most of the adulation goes to film stars. Also, consider this: the film this song appears in, doesn’t have A-List stars, but splendid dancers.
While reposting the dance video on his Instagram page, Badshah noted, “Baat kaafi door tak jaa chuki hai”, which translates to “It’s gone quite far”.
From what we can tell, Alina is a 21-year-old belly-dancing enthusiast. If you stop at her Instagram page, you realise she’s done quite a few Bollywood dance videos, with Tere Naal Nachna being the latest (2200 views on her page, close to a 250,000 on Badshah’s).
The funny thing is, she does a stirring motion that reminds us of Camila Cabello’s Sangria Wine choreography.
Moreover, the ones with the most views on her page also happen to be Badshah tracks. Tareefan has over 4,000 views on her page. Buzz also features on her page.
