India's Best Dancer judges Nora Fatehi and Terence Lewis recently fell prey to social media trolling after their morphed video went viral. The video showed the choreographer touching the actress-dancer inappropriately on her bums. While Nora and Geeta Kapur spoke up about the same, people wondered why Terence is still silent. His Instagram post definitely answered to what was going around but no direct answer was given. Much to everyone's surprise, Terence finally decided to break his silence and react to the morphed video. In a recent interview, the choreographer opened up about the whole fiasco and said that he has the utmost respect for Nora and is not so 'depraved' that he would resort to such things.
Terence told BollywoodLife, "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."
Commenting on Terence's Instagram post in which he can be seen carrying Nora in his arms, the Street Dancer 3D actress wrote about 'video morphing and photoshop.' Not only this, she even applauded him for not letting the negativity affect him and remaining poised and dignified.
Coming back to Terence, he further told the portal, "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."
Not just this, he even revealed what really happened at that time and said that the video was from the episode when Shatrughan Sinha appeared as a guest. It was after he shared his journey and success that the judges decided to give him a standing ovation.
"It was a moment of reverence. There were four cameras around. Why would I do something of that sort when I know I am being covered from every possible angle. And you think Nora and I would be expressionless after such a thing. Any woman would react immediately to it. She is the most dignified person, and instantly cleared it out on social media," he says.
Well, now it seems his haters might have definitely got a great answer!
Meanwhile, Nora who appeared as a substitute for Malaika Arora has now bid the show goodbye. She penned down a beautiful note for 'Chhaiya Chhaiya' actress who recently recovered from COVID-19 and wrote, "Shoutout to the Queen @malaikaaroraofficial thank u for trusting me to fill in for you on Indias Best Dancer, it was a beautiful experience! Im so grateful for the opportunity! I Was initially scared to fill in such big shoes as no one can take your place queen but the entire team welcomed me with open arms and for that im humbled!
