Indian choreographer Terence Lewis broke a Guinness World Record by making 1,336 people dance in unison. The feat was accomplished through Colors’ reality show “Guinness World Record – Ab India Todega”.The record was broken Saturday at St. Teresa High School, said a source.
The participants were invited through a free of cost registration process, and received a quick one-hour lesson from Terence.
Rob Molly, the designated official from the Guinness World Record, declared the effort as successful.
Terence’s challenge was to break the recent Guinness record of choreographing over 1,235 people, set in Australia.
Actor Shabbir Ahluwalia, who co-hosts “Guinness World Record – Ab India Todega” with Bollywood actress Preity Zinta, was also present to pep up the participants as they danced to the popular song “Jhoom barabar jhoom”.
Terence, 35, has been working in the Indian film industry since long, but received fame when he took on the role of a mentor and judge in Zee TV’s “Dance India Dance”.
Later, he was a participant on “Fear Factor – Khatron Ke Khiladi 3″, and was recently seen as a judge on “Chak Dhoom Dhoom: Team Challenge”.
