Noted film-maker and actor Rajinikanth's daughter Aishwarya Dhanush's Bharatanatyam performance at the United Nations headquarters in New York on March 8, on the occasion of International Women's Day has come under severe criticism. She has also been trolled by Twitterati after a small clip of her dance surfaced online.

A few dance experts, after watching the short clip, slammed Aishwarya Dhanush. Sharing her view, accomplished Indian classical and contemporary dancer, Anita Ratnam told India Today that there was no footwork from Aishwarya and the postures were 'terrible.'

"That's not how a Bharatnatyam recital takes place. The whole song is basically unutilised. If you notice, she is neither dancing to lyrics nor to the bol. From the lack of grace, it is very evident that she is not a dancer," Anita Ratnam said.

"Also, considering how she is performing worse than a beginner in Bharatnatyam, she shouldn't have been on stage in the first place, leave alone at the UN. I think it's very disgraceful," she added.

It has to be noted that Aishwarya is United Nations Women's Advocate for Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment in India. Below, find the short clip that is doing the rounds online.
