Feb 17, 2019 13:22 IST

Eshan Hilal, a 25-year-old belly dancer is challenging gender stereotypes through his performances. Popular as a female driven art, he followed his passion to become a professional. He is now known as India's first male belly dancer. He doesn't just practice the art of belly dancing with perfection but also adorns outfits that transgress barriers. Designing his own outfits for his performances, he often wears skirts and heels and has previously walked the ramp at NIFT's annual cultural festival.
