Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan heaped praises on the National Film Award winner actor Allu Arjun, and shared his excitement saying how the latter’s dance step in the song Srivalli went viral on the Internet in no time.

The song is sung by Javed Ali, and features Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna. The track is from the Telugu action drama film Pushpa: The Rise

In the episode 62, host Amitabh Bachchan welcomed the rollover contestant Ipsita Das from Bhubaneshwar, Odisha to the hot seat. For Rs 20,000, the contestant was asked: “Who was the recipient of the National Film Award for Best Actor in 2023?” 

The options given were — Rajinikanth, Mammootty, Allu Arjun and Rishab Shetty. The correct answer was Allu Arjun. Amitabh said: “Allu Arjun received the award for the film Pushpa: The Rise which released in 2021. But the award wasn’t given for two years on account of Covid which he was later given. Have you watched Pushpa?” 

Contestant: “Yes, sir.” 

The actor said: “Isn’t it a lovely film? His acting was brilliant. For the first time in my life I witnessed something such as a slipper coming off, going viral. It came off while dancing.” 

Contestant: “It’s an iconic step.” 

Big B: “And all the people who copied his dance step started by removing their slippers. ‘Oops!’ Then they’d wear them and start walking. It became that popular.”
