Indian fans are all praises for the Israeli duo for adding an element of Bollywood to the Olympics. “Thank you so much Team Israel for this!!! You have no idea how excited I was to hear and see this!! AAJA NACHLE,” a social media user tweeted.

“Entry of Bollywood in #TokyoOlympics and as usual there’s some different level of energy in our Indian songs,” another netizen wrote on Twitter. Israel’s duo of Eden Blecher and Shelly Bobritsky were fighting it out to seek qualification for the final of the women’s duet technical routine event at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre. However, they were not able to qualify for the summit clash.
