Reportedly Telu sravan Kumar, a 25 year old hyderabad man, is trying hard to blur the gender lines in a profession that has few takers among men from around the world. Meanwhile Sravan, with every move, is attempting to crush stereotypes associated with the magnificent art of belly dancing.

Furthermore it wasn’t a cakewalk for sravan to prove his mettle and match the nimble steps of his female counterparts with elegance and grace. Further from being jeered at as "hijra" and ridiculed for his female-dominated choice of art, sravan has come a long way and he is now a member of Payal’s Dance Academy, one of the most well-known contemporary dance institutes in india today. Reportedly he is a popular face among art circles in hyderabad, and works extensively for the LGBTQI+ community in the city, apart from being an IT professional.

Even though Sravan’s parents, friends and colleagues were proud of his choice, the dancer says that the first time he performed before an audience in Vijayawada, it was too difficult for the crowd to digest the fact that a man can sway his hips and move his belly just like a woman. sravan said “People asked, why couldn’t I do something classical, or why not just stick to folk dance. But I was adamant,” says, adding, “If men performing classical dance could elicit respect, why can a belly dancer not receive the same?”
