Someone from Mumbai called and joked, ‘You were dancing as if you were in your own courtyard’. I was like, ‘Kyun nahin (Because why not)?’ Just to be part of the main competition after 30 years is a huge achievement, not to count the award that we won. Why follow protocol? Hum apni khushi aise hi dikhaate hain, kood kood kar (We celebrate our happiness with utmost excitement, breaking into dance).”

Their dance was indeed a pleasant moment at the Cannes Film Festival, which made people around them enjoy it.
