The video has clocked more than 121k views on social media. 

Responding to the video, a user commented, “The day we celebrate Onam on Moon isn't far away, true to the Mallu spirit.”

Another said, “Waah. Instead of Rice Kollam, Ice Kollam.”

A few said that the “Malayali spirit is unstoppable.”

Another wrote, “You can take a person out of India, but can never take India out of a person!”

A person said, “Globally Indians know precisely how to celebrate their respective festivals, that makes us proud to be Indian.”

For some, the art was “unbelievable”.
