HUBBALLI: A troupe of classical dancers from Hubballi has performed in a music video to pay tribute to corona warriors.
Sahana Bhat of Natyanjali Nrutya Kala Kendra and her 25 disciples have performed to the song ‘Teri Mitti’ from the Hindi film ‘Kesari’. Each of them has performed at their homes and all of it was edited together by Sahana’s son Prithviraj.

Natyanjali Nrutya Kala Kendra conducted online dance classes for its students during the lockdown as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations.
Sahana, who directed the video, said, “We decided to create a video to pay respect to corona warriors by performing mixed forms of dance including classical. The disciples who were taking online classes from different parts of the state and from abroad were asked to make and send their videos.”
“We wanted to motivate the doctors, police and other personnel fighting against the pandemic round the clock,” she added.
In the video Bhavana Koushik, Krutika Kulkarni and Mahima Hegde of Bengaluru, Gouri Kanthi of Bagalkot, Meghana Angadi and Anushree Shetty of Dharwad, Siri Kini of Honnavar, Amruta Naik of Dandeli, Mangala Bhat of Yellapur, Sampreetha Bhat of Germany are among those who have performed in the video.
“We have also used the soundtrack ‘Shaabaashiyaan’ from the film Mission Mangal in the video. Both songs increase the spirit of patriotism among listeners,” added Sahana.
