An enthused former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah was seen shaking a leg with Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh at a wedding ceremony in Chandigarh over the weekend in a video that has been widely shared on social media.
Taking a break from his frequent run-ins with the central government, Mr Abdullah was attending the wedding of Seharinder Kaur, the daughter of Amarinder Singh’s son Raninder Singh.
The two veteran politicians seem to be enjoying themselves dancing to covers of ‘Aaj Kal Tere Mere Pyar Ke Charche’ and ‘Gulabi Aankhen Jo Teri Dekhi’ both originally sung by Mohammed Rafi in the late 1960s and 70s.

Suhag is a genre of folk songs sung as part of wedding rituals in Punjab.
