This quite the season for flash mobs, it seems. Inspired by the huge success of the flash mob act in Mumbai, Chennai had one of its own at Express Avenue mall in Royapettah on Sunday 4PM. Nearly 70 persons including actor Ganesh Venkatram, swarm together at a point and danced to three hit songs ‘Boom , Boom Robo Da , Robo Da’ from Enthiran, ‘Oththa Sollale’ from Adukkalam, and the current rage ‘Why this Kolaveri di’ as the onlookers cheered on.
The cast of the flash mob – mostly students of New College visual communication department and other city college- roamed in the mall pretending to be shoppers.
The event was an initiative by Suhasini Mani Ratnam to promote the Chennai International Film Festival (CIFF) to be held between December 14 and 22. “We want youngsters to understand international films too,” said Suhasini.
