Nora Fatehi dismisses claims of Terence Lewis touching her butt on 'India's Best Dancer, says the clip is fake


Nora Fatehi is currently seen judging the dance reality show India’s Best Dancer as a substitute judge since Malaika Arora tested positive for COVID-19. However, the actress and dancer went viral on social media for all the wrong reasons as a video clip surfaced where co-judge Terence Lewis can be seen touching her inappropriately. The clip irked many netizens who called out Terence on his misconduct of brushing has hand against Nora’s butt.

However, Nora has come to Terence’s defence and thanked him for being so calm and composed even after facing undue backlash from the netizens. Terence shared a post on his Instagram, which had him carry Nora in his arms. The photo is from the show when both of them performed on stage together. He indirectly explained the entire situation through a monk's story. Nora Fatehi replied to this post by thanking him.


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
