Anil Geela while speaking about taking up the challenge to a daily said, 

“That is our natural dance but we did practiced a couple of times since we were dancing in the slush in the field. Doing it on the road would have been easy but we decided to be realistic. The bullocks were ploughing the field and we danced to the song.” 

Anil who hails from Siddipet was serving as a teacher in a private school. With his friends, he decided to make Youtube videos showing the village life. The another guy in the video is a farmer himself and his name is Pilli Tirupati.

Srikanth who shot the video is the person who gave this idea and said if the entire world was hitched on to the kiki challenge he wondered how villagers also could do the same, “We are a bunch of people who are fascinated with village life. What else do you have in the village but bullocks?”
