Pakistani groom Reza Khan knew he had to go all out for the groom’s dance when he married the love of his life Puja Tailor Khan in Boston. Reza shocked the wedding guests when he led eight of his friends in a wild, high energy dance that combined rap, reggaeton and Bollywood music.
Bollywood music was a natural choice as Puja has Indian heritage, not to mention the songs have some epic dance routines. Reza and his bros really threw down on the dance floor, dancing to a highly choreographed performance over 10 minutes that must have taken months of hard work to pull off so convincingly.
The video unsurprisingly went viral, with 5.1 million views tuning in on the couple’s YouTube channel Reza & Puja Khan. Reza began the performance by saying “I’m a lucky guy – that’s all I gotta say. Puja, you take my breath away.” He then led the audience in the famous call and response from Beyoncé’s “Run the World (Girls)”.
Next up Reza’s boys hit the stage and danced to the upbeat Bollywood song “Malhari” from historical romance film Bajirao Mastani. They did the full-on dance routine from the movie, complete with jumping leg kicks – all in dinner suits no less. They then launched into Elvis Crespo’s romantic Latin pop song “Suavemente”. Believe it or not the boys were actually upstaged later by Reza and Puja’s first dance, which also featured a creative dance routine to a mix of Western and Eastern music.
Netizens just loved the imaginative wedding dances, and added positive comments such as “Dang, Indians know how to throw it down! What a fun wedding! Blessings!” and “The groom’s energy is crazy man. He is so confident in his own wedding. Hats off to him and the boys killed it.”
Reza and Puja are both content creators and they document their life together with their baby Sher on their YouTube channel, which has 2.87 million subscribers. They also have individual Instagram accounts, @pujatailorkhan and @therezakhan, where they post comedic content and show their life in Los Angeles with family and friends.
The couple explained the origin of the crazy groom’s dance in the video description, saying “Reza has danced at many people’s weddings, but he knew he had to lay it all on the line for this one. Reza’s music taste spans across romantic Bollywood, rap and reggaeton. It was tough to go with just one, so he mashed them all together!”
It’s true that Reza has a broad taste in tunes, as the other songs included in his groom’s dance are Daddy Yankee’s Latin rap “Con Calma”, The Sugarhill Gang’s old school hip hop jam “Apache (Jump On It)” and the Bollywood hit “Tattad Tattad” from the 2013 romance musical film Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela. The couple must really like Hindi romance films as the lads also danced to “First Class” from 2019 drama film Kalank.
