The video of a young girl’s dance performance who lost one leg to cancer went viral on social media for all the right reasons. 11-year-old Anjali lost one of her legs to cancer but she put up a bedazzling performance during a medical conference in Kolkata recently.
She danced to Shreya Ghoshal’s hit number Mere Dholna Sunn from Akshay Kumar’s 2007 film Bhool Bhulaiyaa. And what a performance it was?
Dressed in a lehenga choli, Anjali performed difficult Kathak steps and chakras to the beats of the song and danced with effortless ease as the audience cheered for her.
Dr Arnab Gupta, who attended the conference, recorded Anjali’s performance and shared it on Facebook.
In his caption, Dr Gupta said that Anjali aspired to be a dancer but lost one of her legs to cancer. “Our treating doctors and nurses inspired her with the story of Sudhachandran. She fought back to become an outstanding dancer within couple of years, winning several accolades and hearts,” an excerpt from Dr Gupta’s post reads.
Meanwhile, the internet loved Anjali’s performance as the video has been shared widely across Facebook and has garnered over 4,000 likes. Netizens applauded Anjali in the comments section and posted heart emoticons for her.
