After the song goes viral, many calls and messages were continuously coming for the medical students. They even attended many interviews after these issues.
Naveen said, "I feel like a star...we just don't know how to handle this. It was only for entertainment." "College is something holy don't bring any religion nor caste into it," said Janaki Omkumar.
Kerala government has also posted an 18-second video where the covid vaccines dance to the same song by moving their crystal limbs, which is cute to watch.
The medical students did that dance just for entertainment and to break out stress during their hefty schedule, but society diverts its intention. It is happy to see that even the Kerala government encourages and supports the students with positivity.
