My faithful readers (all three of you) know how much I love Indian/Pakistani dance video clips. So imagine my delight when my favourite TV show "So You Think You Can Dance" decided to feature Bollywood as one of their dance style choices.
I couldn't resist "borrowing" from Ultrabrown (http://www.ultrabrown.com/posts/robot-gopis), an Indian blog, these two videos: first, the SYTYCD rendition of a choreography of a song from the hit film Om Shanti Om, then the dance sequence from the film itself. Enjoy!

Dance Sequence from Om Shanti Om
I made a mistake. The Indian clip above is not from Om Shanti Om, but from the film Amrapali (1966). The song used in SYTYCD sequence is from Om Shanti Om. Are we clear?
