New Delhi, May 23 - India's women shuttlers celebrated their historic Uber Cup bronze medal winning performance by dancing on bhangra beats and also made sure that World No.1 Lee Chong Wei joined the act.

The celebrations started when India captain Saina Nehwal, P.V. Sindhu and the doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa gave the hosts a 3-0 quarter-final win over Indonesia Thursday night, assuring themselves of at least a maiden bronze by making the semis.
