Skating championships have always been about beautifully composed western music scenes, graceful art movements, chic skating dresses and figure skating tights. At least, that’s what comes to our minds when we think of skating championships.
What are the odds of Olympic skating champions performing on a Bollywood song, draped in a Bollywood attire, and that too in the 2016 European Figure Skating Championships in Slovakia? Even if the odds are against it – it actually happened.
The Russian pair danced to the song Nagada Sang Dhol from the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Goliyon ki Rasleela Ramleela starring Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.
Volosozhar and Trankov are the first figure skaters to win two gold medals at the same Olympics in 2014.
The performance, with a Bollywood spin, was a clear hit with the audience and judges. The pair earned the highest scores, winning their fourth gold at the competition.
