A dance video showing a man and his three children jiving to hit Loveyatri track Akh Lad Jaave is trending on social media.
The Hip Hop presentation by the US family living in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has added a new dimension to the popular song sung by Badshah, Asees Kaur and Jubin Nautiyal.
Posting the dance video on Instagram, Emmanel ‘Cross’ Hurd, who calls himself a “creator, writer and choreographer”, shared: “My wife is Pakistani & loves to watch hip hop dance. She asked me to dance to music from her culture…so last Sunday I got our 3 children together to perform to a song that I felt represented apart of my culture(hip hop) & her culture as well….We love you mom!!!”
The song however does not have any Pakistan connection.
The video shows Emmanel Hurd and his three children showing some great moves as they groove to the Akh Lad Jaave track.
