Cinesec, a group of video enthusiasts collaborated with the choreography group of the campus and together they decided to make a dance video for the Valentine's day. The video was shot mostly in the campus itself including few shots in the nearby cafes to add a little variation. The dance video revolves around 4 IIT Roorkee guys trying to impress a girl with the aim to spend a less lonely Valentine's day. Will they succeed in their effort or they have to stay single? The video will tell you all about it. Check it out below.

The dance video features the 4 guys: Meet Saparia, Satyabrat Panda, Sambhav Jain, Devarsh Tiwari who are trying hard to impress the girls: Priya Ajania and Apurva Jatan.

According to one of the dancer, this video will break the misconception that IIT engineers are geeks who remain busy with their study-eat-sleep-repeat mode but they have other talents too which they can show with perfection.
