‘Family Karma’: Anisha Ramakrishna Dishes About the ‘No Sharam’ Dance Parties (And Her Love of Britney Spears)
Ramakrishna, along with Bali Chainani and Shaan Patel have a longstanding dance party date that she says has been a source of fun and friendship for the trio.
“We host two dance parties a month,” she told Showbiz Cheat Sheet. “The dance songs are a combination of Bollywood hits and American top 40 music. The dances are spontaneous and what is quite comical is that most of the time we have the videos of the songs playing as well and we are really trying to mimic the Bollywood stars, and clearly failing at it. We dance for hours, the parties start at 6 pm and go on until about 2 am. It’s a great time!”
The ‘No Sharam’ parties started one random night
Ramakrishna says the get together began one random night. “We met for drinks and then we all met up at Shaan’s house and we always play music and I guess we all started dancing,” she recalled during the Family Karma red carpet premiere event. “We posted the dances on Instagram and so many people reacted to it.”
As a result, they continued to get together and share their dance parties on a regular basis. “It just became a thing,” she said. “So now, we’re going to have them and we’re going to invite everybody!” At the time she hoped to do Instagram Live events too. “One second it’s Bollywood and the next minute it’s Justin Bieber,” she says about the music setlist.
Fans can literally get in on the fun. Ramakrishna is a fashion designer and has now created “#nosharam” t-shirts that she, Patel and Chainani are seen wearing in videos. She explains what “No Sharam” means on her website. “In hindi, it literally means ‘no shame.’ But to us it means live your life boldly, without limits, without fear, out loud. Be unapologetically you.” Order your own merchandise to wear to the trio’s next event here.
She’s the biggest Britney Spears fan
Being a huge music lover, Ramakrishna shared she’s a huge Britney Spears fan. She mused about the singer on the afternoon of the Family Karma premiere. “So I’m the biggest Britney fan,” she shared on Instagram. “I don’t care what anyone says, she’s the best. And she has those videos where she shows her outfits.”
“I think I’m gonna make one for you guys,” she said. “And you guys tell me what I should wear to the premiere. And if you’re watching Britney, I know you have better things to do. I know you’re a mogul. I really wanna go to the Britney Zone.” Like Spears, Ramakrishna modeled several outfits on her Instagram story and allowed fans to help her select the right dress for the red carpet. She ended up walking the carpet in a gorgeous form-fitting black dress and completely killed it at the premiere.
At the premiere, Showbiz Cheat Sheet asked Ramakrishna about her love for Spears. “It’s Britney bitch!” saying she’s loved Spears since she was younger. “Her first album, ‘… Baby One More Time.’ I would dress up as her in the video and film myself.”
