It all started when a Twitter user tagged Ms Irani and producer Ekta Kapoor in the video. "Punjabis can dance on any music because they're born with their own rhythm," the Twitter user said in his tweet.
Next thing you know, the minister herself replied to the tweet:
Agreed!!! Paajis pao Bhangra. https://t.co/bdNtKCB1h5- Smriti Z Irani (@smritiirani) April 17, 2017
The video begins with the paajis, as Ms Irani calls them, dancing to the regular track. The song eventually turns into a party remix. We're not sure how this came about but it definitely begs to be watched.
Ms Irani's tweet has received some 700 'likes' and about 120 retweets since being tweeted earlier today.
