Exploring the Viral Reel Phenomenon: A Teacher’s Controversial Dance!!
In today’s digital age, social media has taken the world by storm, and platforms like Instagram and TikTok have given rise to a craze known as “reel mania.” This phenomenon has led people from all walks of life to create short, engaging videos, hoping for their content to go viral and catapult them to fame.
However, the pursuit of online stardom sometimes takes unexpected turns, as illustrated by a recent incident involving Prabha Negi, a teacher from Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr district.
The Viral Reel That Raised Eyebrows
In the age of viral content, Prabha Negi found herself swept up in the reel mania. She decided to embrace the trend and created a video where she danced to a remix of the iconic song “Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi Mein Aana” from the 1990 film “Aashiqui.” Little did she know that her video would soon make waves, not just among students but also within the teaching community.
From Teacher to TikTok Star
As Prabha Negi’s dance video gained traction, it quickly went viral, attracting attention from students and fellow teachers alike. While some applauded her for embracing new forms of expression, others were less enthusiastic. Questions arose about whether it was appropriate for a teacher to be seen in such a light on a social media platform.

Encouraging Student Participation
What added fuel to the fire was the revelation that Prabha Negi had encouraged her students to record videos of her, even within the school premises. Several students came forward, disclosing that they had been asked to shoot videos of their teacher, often for her comedy and other content posted on her Facebook page.
Concerns Raised by Fellow Teachers
The situation escalated when Prabha Negi’s fellow teachers expressed their disapproval by lodging a complaint with the education officer (BSA). They questioned the appropriateness of a teacher’s involvement in such activities and raised concerns about the impact it might have on the school’s environment and the student’s perception of their educators.
