A bunch of Indian American teenagers, dressed in traditional finery and dancing to the tunes of “Bahubali: The Conclusion’s” title song, wowed NBA fans Nov. 18 during a game at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

And ever since NBA posted a short video of their performance on social media, the group, Top Naach from C Studios, has been receiving a lot of love online.

The accompanying caption with the video, “Orlando gets treated to some CRAZY DESI VIBES,” clearly summed up the mood at the event. Fans were seen cheering and dancing along to the Bollywood beats.  

Since being uploaded on Facebook Nov. 21, the video showing dancers with highly synchronized moves, has been watched over 775,000 times and shared over 900 times.

Top Naach, which also danced on a range of songs, including “Ghoomar,” were selected to perform before a match between Orlando Magic and Utah Jazz, since they were the winners of a dance competition organized by Bollywood Magic.

As part of the showcase Bollywood Magic invited dance troops from all over the U.S. to enter the competition for prizes worth $15,000.
