Warriors ditch cheerleaders for ethnic dancers

Mumbai: Pune Warriors, during their Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter with Delhi Daredevils yesterday, unveiled a new concept at the D.Y. Patil Sports Complex by replacing female cheerleaders with traditional Indian "Cheer Queens" to motivate the team.

The concept is a brainchild of Sahara India Pariwar's Managing Worker Chairman Subrata Roy.

Great run

Girls dressed in ethnic costumes cheered for the Pune Warriors, who are having a great run in their maiden IPL season. The costumes were designed by ace Bollywood designer Neeta Lulla while the dance was choreographed by Tanusree Shankar and Ganesh Hegde.

The "Cheer Queens" sang and danced Bharata Natyam, Bengali dance, Gujarati Garba, Haryanvi dance, Maharashtrian ‘Lavni,' Punjabi Bhangra, Mohiniyattam, an official said.

"With Pune Warriors India's ‘Cheer Queens,' we intend to showcase and bring recognition to the rich and diverse culture of India at an international platform," Roy explained.
