काली बस नाचना चाहता है – Kali Wants to Dance Hindi

काली बस नाचना चाहता हैHindi काली बस नाचना चाहता है – is the Hindi Story of Kali Wants to Dance, the Biography of Kali Veerapathiran who at the age of 25 became the only male dancer to have mastered the classical dance form Bharatanatyam, as well as three ancient Tamil folk dance forms.

He was featured in a documentary film, won many awards, and became famous in India through dancing. Kali is the founder of Koothambalam, a dance school in Kovalam.

But his path may have taken a different route if he did not strive for what his heart has dreamed of. His friends and family discourage him from dancing with sadly discriminatory attitudes towards boys dancing for a living and his family has no means of sending him to take a formal dance lesson.

But he has the talent and Sarah Chanda saw the burning desire and passion to dance deep within him, he has the makings of a classical dancer and the dedication and drive to overcome the prejudices of his community.

सेमसन, जो वयं भी भारतनाम क
जानी मानी नृयांगना ह, काली से नृय
करने को कहती ह। काली बस नाचना चाहता है

काली अपनी पट के ऊपर से ही धोती
बांध कर एक फ़मी गीत पर नाचता
है। शक को उसे देखकर लगता है
क उसम नतक बनने के गण ह।
