American basketball team Orlando Magic celebrated the seventh edition of their annual India Day with Indian American Chamber of Commerce (IACC), showcasing Indian culture through dance, cuisine and a variety of other cultural activities.
The festivities were across Fan Fest that included some traditional music, cultural dances and Indian cuisine at half-time during the game against Brooklyn Nets. The Orlando Magic Dancers grooved to some top Bollywood numbers like Choghada Tara, Kamariya and Rangtaari from the movie Loveyatri. This was followed by another routine from members of the Bollywood Dance Academy.
In 2017, Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty was present as the Orlando Magic celebrated the annual India Day festivities with the team’s fans. The team presented a personalised Orlando Magic jersey to the Bollywood star as a part of the celebrations.
The celebrations took place after Orlando Magic's 102-89 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night, their second straight win.
Nikola Vucevic, selected for his first All-Star Game, had 12 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, when Orlando put away a Brooklyn team that never got it going offensively the entire night.
Vucevic and Isaac had three blocks apiece as the Magic limited the Nets to 36.3 percent shooting for the game, including just 10 of 38 (26.3 percent) on 3-point attempts.
