Abdullah was attending the wedding of Seherinder 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.

Seherinder Kaur, the daughter of Punjab CM Amarinder Singh's son Raninder Singh married Delhi-based businessman Aaditya Narang at the politician’s Siswan farmhouse in Chandigarh on Sunday.

The video has gone viral on social media with netizens delighted at the joie de vivre displayed by the 83-year-old Kashmiri leader.

"This video of Captain Amarinder Singh and Farooq Abdullah proves that age is, indeed, just a number!" wrote Congress leader Saral Patel.

"Farooq Abdullah dancing at Captain Amarinder Singh’s granddaughter’s wedding. Admirable energy and joie de vivre at 83 and after a couple of major surgeries," wrote a Twitter user.

"Politics apart, this video of Captain Amarinder Singh and Farooq Abdullah dancing on Bollywood melodies at this age is so full of life...," wrote another.
