Virgin Atlantic’s ‘Bounce Bhangra’ surprise


Brothers Mrinal and Vikram Seth, aka Bounce Bhangra, became a viral sensation when they helped people get through lockdown life by moving their popular Bounce Bhangra classes online, generating thousands of new fans who kept their bodies fit and spirits lifted through weekly bhangra dance classes.

In recognition of their contribution to wellbeing in a difficult time, the brothers have been announced as the first recipients of Virgin Atlantic’s new initiative, Airplausewhich rewards those who made the nation smile during lockdown. The brothers were surprised with flight tickets at Heathrow Airport by fellow dancer, Aston Merrygold, as they were giving Virgin Atlantic cabin crew a Bounce Bhangra fitness class on the tarmac.

As part of the Airplause initiative, Virgin Atlantic is inviting people to nominate a friend, relative or neighbour who has been inspiring during lockdown. If successful, these heroes can earn flights to top destinations such as the Caribbean, India, Israel or the USA – either for a much-deserved holiday or to visit friends and relatives – as soon as it’s safe to return to the skies.

Nominations can be made by visiting
