...and five and six and seven and eight

While searching the web for something like this
to remind me of the sheer shirt, Google's first return was a series of photos of what appears to be a family in an apartment doing the Hrithik Wiggle*! The adorable wee tots were the highlight. One of the reaons my heart melted when I saw this was that the author of Bollywood Boy describes a few instances of everyday people trying the HW, and when I read that book I hadn't seen the movie yet, so I didn't truly understand how fantastic it is that people at home try this. To me it looks really hard, like you could seriously hurt yourself.

Even though the clothes may be awful, the moves are undeniably hypnotizing - so everyone should go read Bollywood 501's profile of Farah Khan, the woman behind the moves. This is really interesting and the stills are great. Clearly I must get my hands on a copy of Dil Se.

* I suppose, properly, it should be called the Hrithik Frantic Thrusting, but I just can't quite bring myself to call it that. A bit too much of an air of skank. "Wiggle" is funnier.
