The song Entammede Jimikki Kammal (My Mother’s Earring) from Malayalam movie Velipadinte Pusthakam became a viral sensation soon after its release in August. Its catchy tune has prompted a line of parodies featuring groups of college students and flash mobs. Now, actor Mohanlal has stepped up to reclaim the song’s fame.

The rendition opens with actors from the original song Arun Kurian and Sharath Kumar joining participants of the challenge, when suddenly Mohanlal suddenly enters the scene and joins the surprised crowd. “The song that has got everybody dancing have made me too to take a few steps,” said the actor in his Facebook post on Sunday.

On August 22, the team of Velipadinte Pusthakam announced a dancing challenge, also promising participants a chance to perform with the original dancers.
