Air India unveils safety video celebrating Indian classical dance forms

Tata Group-backed Air India introduced a new inflight safety video, ‘Safety Mudra’, for passengers that is inspired by India’s rich culture and its folk-art forms.

Sharing the video on X, Air India’s post read, “For centuries, Indian classical dance and folk-art forms have served as a medium of storytelling and instruction. Today, they tell another story, that of inflight safety.”

Each featured dance form presents a specific set of instructions, providing information to passengers in an engaging and culturally immersive manner.

What is Safety Mudra?

‘Safety Mudras’ has been developed in collaboration with the trio of Prasoon Joshi of McCann Worldgroup, musician Shankar Mahadevan, and film director Bharatbala.

The video has been meticulously crafted to engage passengers and showcase the diversity and depth of the Indian culture while delivering essential safety information, a statement from Air India read.

“The video integrates safety instructions with mudras or dance expressions in eight diverse dance forms– Bharatnatyam, Bihu, Kathak, Kathakali, Mohiniyattam, Odissi, Ghoomar and Giddha– from across the country,” it stated.

The safety video will be initially accessible on Air India’s recently introduced A350 aircraft, which is equipped with state-of-the-art inflight entertainment screens. It will be progressively deployed on other aircraft in Air India’s fleet.
