You see in the movies when people dance with their headsets on and grooving to the songs without making any noise. This is called ‘silent disco’ which is a trend getting very popular, but people have found a new way to put this in the ‘Baarat.’ A video is going viral of a silent baarat procession, as all the Baaratis are wearing headphones and dancing to the tunes. This whole scene reminds people of ‘The Breakup Song’ from the movie ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', where everyone was dancing with headphones on, an exclusive song playing in it promoting zero noise pollution.

The thesis video was shared on Instagram by @shefooodie and unfolds in two parts. In Part 1, it showcases the modern Baarat in which the participants dance and sync their moves with the songs playing in their headphones. And in the other part, it reveals the actual scene where people are singing and dancing on the streets.


As the video gained viral momentum, diverse reactions flooded in. One user lauded the initiative, stating, “It’s preventing noise pollution…great.” Another chimed in, “Dude… This is a nice idea… Other people will also not disturb.” Nevertheless, some couldn’t resist the humour of contemplating the spectacle of a silent dance.

As it started going viral, the comments section was filled with mixed reactions; some people praised it while others didn't. One user said, preventing noise pollution…great.” Another one said,  “Dude… This is a nice idea… Other people will also not disturb.”

“People be like: pagal hogye…but it’s a good idea for the environment,” said a user. Another laughed and said, “People will think you’re crazy on the road,” while a third said, “Weird when they shout out.”
