Social media made him an overnight celebrity as the netizens could not stop gushing over his dance moves.
Several Bollywood stars also took to their respective social media accounts to encourage Shrivastava, who is an assistant professor at a private engineering college in Bhopal.
He even went on to appear on Salman Khan's reality game show 'Dus Ka Dum'.
That special moment
When he finally met his idol Govinda
Shrivastava's long-pending dream of shaking a leg with his idol Govinda finally came true on the sets of 'Dance Deewane'. The two had a ball as they danced the night away.
Impressed with the 46-year-old, Govinda said, "What's special about him is that he didn't do the steps consciously. I watched him and realized he was copying me well."
