Recently, Nora Fatehi joined the judging panel of dance reality show India’s Best Dancer after Malaika Aroa tested positive for COVID-19. However, a video went viral from an episode of the show in which choreographer Terence Lewis was allegedly seen touching Nora Fatehi inappropriately.
Netizens couldn’t control and made it viral and expressed their hate for the choreographer and judge of the show Terence Lewis. Terence had cleared out the air before when he took it to his social media and clarified. On the same post, Nora Fatehi had also commented and said it was morphed and photoshopped.
However, Terence Lewis again opened up on his viral video and called it a naughty memer’s work. In conversation with Bollywood life, he said, “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.”

He added further and said that in just 4-5 hours he started getting trolled on social media and got several 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 of 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 told the portal.

A Zen Master and his disciples of monks were walking in the Himalayas back to their monastery. On their way to the monastery they had to cross the river Ganga flowing fully though less violently. There was an young beautiful maiden in distress, sitting close to the banks, whose village was just across the river. She was scared to cross the river by herself so she asked the elder monk to help her cross the river. "Sure" said the Zen Master and held her up in his arms. They crossed the river and he let her down gently as she went to her village after thanking the Master. The younger monk wasn't taking this all easily. He looked little worried. The monks came to their monastery after couple of hours of difficult walk in the hills, but the younger monk was still not settled. Sensing it the Guru asked him what the matter was. The young monk said "Master, we have sworn of not touching a woman, but you carried her in your arms, you tell us not to think of women but you touched her" complained the disciple. The Zen Master smiled n replied "I carried her across the river and left her on the other side. Are You Still Carrying Her ? " 🙏🏽 . . . Thank you @norafatehi for being the most elegant, dignified n classy guest judge & for your implicit trust in me! #zen #philosophy #pathofleastresistance #loveandkindness #indiasbestdancer @sonytvofficial #dance #norafatehi #terencelewis
Terence asked why he would so something of that sort two weeks after shooting for a very intimate sequence with Nora and said that he has the highest respect for Nora. He continued talking about Nora and appreciated her for her dancing skills and for the person she is in her personal life.
