According to an earlier video shared by BBC Midlands Today, Anu had to have her leg amputated shortly after she was born. And while she earlier had another prosthetic leg, her new one, a pink sports blade, helps her "run faster and do street dancing faster."
The clip that's now gone viral captures the exact moment Anu walks into school wearing her new sports blade for the first time. "That's your new pink leg?" one of her friends asks her. "Wow!" exclaims another. Some of them also give Anu big hugs. She is later shown running around the playground with one of her friends.
