Superstar Rajinikanth’s daughter Aishwaryaa R Dhanush performed Bharatanatyam at the United Nations headquarters on the occasion of World International Women’s Day (March 8) in New York, but her performance was not appreciated on the Internet and also by the dance experts.

Ms.Anita Ratnam, who is trained in Bharatanatyam, Mohiniattam, and Kathakali, called Aishwaryaa’s performance as ‘pathetic’ and shared a small piece of video of Aishwaryaa’s dance performance on Facebook and wrote, “This is what Bharatanatyam becomes. A caricature and a farce!”

As soon as the snippet was shared, Aishwaryaa’s dance recital went on viral on the internet, and many people have criticized her performance. Aishwaryaa is a trained Bharatanatyam dancer and also the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for Women to promote the gender equality and Women’s empowerment in India. Some people claims that she got a chance to perform at the United Nations headquarters only because she is the daughter of Rajinikanth’s and was a celebrity.

In a recent interview, a famous dancer said that her postures were terrible. There is no proper footwork, and that’s not how a Bharatanatyam takes place. She has unutilised the whole song. She also said that Aishwaryaa was neither danced to the lyrics, not to the taal. She claims that Aishwaryaa is not even a ‘dancer‘ with her evidence in the lack of grace.

She performed worse even than a beginner in Bharatanatyam; she should not have been on stage, leave alone at the UN. She thinks it is a very disgraceful. A UN release said that “Aishwaryaa will help raise awareness of UN Women’s core message of women’s empowerment and gender equality across India, boosting the organization’s efforts to close the gender gap and achieve an equal world – a planet 50-50, by the year 2030.”
