American tennis player Alison Riske, who stunned everyone by knocking off world no. 1 Ashleigh Barty at the recently concluded Wimbledon, pulled off yet another feat that left everyone pleasantly surprised.
This time, the stage was her wedding. Riske, who married Stephen Amritraj, a former Indian American professional tennis player who represented India and also the son of former Indian Davis Cup player Anand Amritraj, took to Twitter to share a snippet from her wedding: a Bollywood dance performance.
“Officially an Amritraj! I’m the luckiest lady because of @stephenamritraj! where all my new Indian followers at??!! here’s a little Bollywood to try to win over your affection!” she tweeted.
Dressed in white gowns, Riske and her sister, Sarah, presented a well-rehearsed performance to the song, “Nachde Ne Saare,” from the Bollywood film, “Baar Baar Dekho.” The 2:20-minute video is garnering a lot of attention.
Indian tennis player Sania Mirza was among those who congratulated the couple and praised the dance moves.
“Yay!! Congratulations… to you and @stephenamritraj (love) those moves btw,” Mirza wrote alongside heart and clapping hands emojis.
