Remember Doordarshan's iconic tune? Ever thought of shaking a leg on that? Most of us wouldn't dare but this young man's dance video on Doordarshan's tune is breaking the Internet. The man identified as @vaishakhdancer09 is Vaishakh Nair, posted this video on a video-sharing platform 'Tik-Tok' but the video went viral just after it was shared on Twitter by someone.

Director General of Doordarshan, Supriya Sahu, also shared the video on Twitter, calling it "absolutely fantastic". Doordarshan National's official Twitter handle, too 'liked' the video and 'retweeted' it.

Jwala Gutta also commented saying: "So cool".

As Netizens felt nostalgic, they too are going ga-ga about the 15-second video and can't believe Vaishakh actually tried this. The fans are only showering love. One user said: "Awesome. Too cute. 😍👍
That tune never fails to bring memories back." While the other said, "Love this ... DD would have never imagined this ..." Vaishakh Nair personally thanked the fans for sharing his video and appreciating it.

For those unaware, Doordarshan, India’s Public Service broadcaster, was launched in New Delhi on 15th September 1959. With its signature tune and a unique round logo of a spinning eye, the channel takes you back in time. Here's a fun fact about the iconic tune, the music with the logo was composed by Pandit Ravi Shankar, along with Ustad Ali Ahmed Hussain Khan. The tune and the symbol first appeared on television screens on 1st April 1976.

The Doordarshan theme tune, as they say, will always be embedded in our minds.
