Terence Lewis has once again reacted to the viral video that reportedly saw him touching Nora Fatehi’s butt. The choreographer calls it a ‘naughty memer’s work’.
Recently a video – featuring judges Nora Fatehi and Terence Lewis – from India’s Best Dancer when viral for all the infamous reasons. Nora stepped in Malaika Arora’s shoes and joined the judging panel after she had tested positive for COVID-19. However, for all the unfortunate reasons, a video from Nora’s first episode, as a judge, went viral and it grabbed headlines. Soon after the episode went air, netizens couldn’t help but point out a scene that allegedly saw the choreographer touching ‘Nora’s butt’. While Terence had then taken to Instagram to clear the air, Nora had commented on it and said it was ‘morphed’ and ‘photoshopped’ for memes purposes.
Now Terence Lewis has once again reacted to the viral video and said it didn’t bother him much. He told Bollywood Life, “Honestly, when I first saw the video, I did not bother much. The use of effects was so clearly visible, any intelligent person would see through it. In today’s times, there are memes made on every celebrity. It was a naughty memer at work, and I did not care. However, in a matter of four-five hours I started getting trolled on social media. I got these hateful comments. Now, I have a very humble following of 1.5 million and my followers are very sensible and dignified. I have always seen the positive side on social media. The language being used by some was very derogatory. My fans started fighting with them supporting me. So, I decided to post that message about the Zen master.”
He further said, “Why would I do something of that sort two weeks after shooting for a very intimate sequence with her. Thankfully, throughout my life I have got enough love and attention from the opposite sex to not feel depraved. I have the highest respect for Nora Fatehi. That kind of thing would only tickle a 17-year-old. I am 45.”
He goes on to add, “There are many who do not introduce themselves as dancers before producers. However, Nora identifies herself as a dancer. It is a huge thing. Dancing is a craft, and it is very tough to be a good dancer. We spend so many years honing our craft. I truly identify with that sentiment of Nora Fatehi.”
