Mumbai, March 2 (IANS) It was a crowd of almost 4,500 people, who gathered here, danced together to the tunes of Salman Khan's song "Dhinka chika" and broke the Guinness World Record for the largest Bollywood dance.

Choreographed by "Dance India Dance" (DID) mentor Terence Lewis, the three-minute song saw the huge crowd matching steps and creating history at KJ Somaiya College Grounds Thursday. Choreographer Remo D'Souza, who is one of the mentors on DID, was also present to cheer the crowd.

The previous record was 1,336 participants, set by Terence in Mumbai in 2011. This year it turned out to be three times more with 4,428 participants setting the record. And Terence is beaming with joy to have broken his own record.

"This has been one of the happiest moments of my life. I feel like dancing. I did it again," he said.

"This time the record is 4,428 and as 'DID' is becoming bigger and bigger we would want the entire country to dance on it," Terence added.

The choreographer said "Dhinka chika" was an obvious choice, as it connected with the masses.

"The last four films of Salman has been a huge hit and the reason behind this is he has reached the lowest common denominator. He has reached the masses. It's the beautiful way of reaching the masses. It was an obvious choice to reach the masses because I totally believe in the philosophy of ABCD (Any Body Can Dance)," Terence told IANS.
