Terence Lewis is a popular choreographer who is known for his contemporary dance style and for judging various Indian Dance reality shows. But everyone who knows the celebrity choreographer is also aware of the controversy when a video of him went viral.
In the viral clip, Terence and Nora Fatehi were seen performing on the stang and while bowing down in respect, Terence’s hand touched Nora Fatehi’s butt. The memers and editors used the video and it went viral in no time.
Everyone could find the video everywhere on the internet. And it also led to massive criticism against Terence Lewis.
Though Terence had already reacted to the viral video in 2020 and claimed that the video was morphed. And now, the popular choreographer has opened up about the incident once again. He recently appeared on the podcast on Manish Paul’s YouTube Channel. And there, he talked about the viral video and its aftermath.
Terence first revealed the true story behind what the situation was. He narrated the story and said, “It was a simple situation. Shatrughan Sinha and his wife had come. Geeta Kapoor felt that we had to do full namaskar to greet them. That week, Malaika Arora had COVID, and Nora stepped into her shoes. I said okay, fine. We did namaskar as respect, but suddenly, Geeta felt that it was not enough and wanted us to do more. So we followed her directions. I don’t even remember if my hand touched her (Nora), I don’t know even if it is really touching.”
He also talked about his relationship with Nora and revealed, “On a fair note, two weeks before, Nora had come on the show and asked me to dance with her… Why would I want to do something like this, when there are four cameras around? This is too cheap, you can’t do this. I got abused in my DMs…”
He concluded his part by saying, “I’ve already danced with her in close proximity, and when you’re in the middle of it, you are not thinking in that zone. We are so focused, you cannot be in two worlds, and you need a lot of guts to do something like this…”
Not only this, but Terence Lewis also went on to say that he immediately called Nora and talked to her when the video went viral. He also revealed that he got badly trolled and abused which left him heart-broken.
