It’s not everyday that you make it to the Guinness Book Of World Records, amirite? It is, of course, a super special feeling and I’m sure choreographer Rahul Shetty is over the moon for achieving that feat right now.
Rahul, who first appeared on Dance India Dance, has choreographed for films like Race 3, the ABCD franchise, Baaghi 2, Housefull 4, DJ Bravo’s ‘The Chamiya song’ and all songs of Street Dancer 3D. He has worked with stars like Shahrukh Khan for Zero, Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff, Varun Dhawan, Mouni Roy and many more. Rahul has even made the dancing legend, Prabhudeva move to his beats.
He made it to the Guinness Book of World Records for choreographing the largest roller skating dance routine consisting of 270 participants, at the Shiv Ganga Roller Skating Club in Belgaum, Karnataka.
Speaking about this feat, a very excited Rahul shares:
“Guinness world record” – the title itself holds so much of importance and honour that being entitled to it for one of my achievements is surreal. Never expected this to happen and when I received the news I was just feeling grateful for it.
He further adds:
When I was really young back in my school days, my parents had got me this big fat GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS which had fancy illustrations and the real pictures of the record holders and I always used to wish if I can ever have my name in that book. So unconsciously, I think my mind was already preparing and manifesting for it. Later I started working with Remo Dsouza sir, who is also a record holder and has a certificate nicely framed that hangs on his office wall with so much of pride. I always used to look up and admire it. Today, I proudly hold one of the titles in my name with that Guinness logo just above my name. So, it’s a moment of pride for my parents and my family. And now, I am just thinking of ways to break another record with my moves.
Well, like he says, his hard work and inspiring people like Remo D’Souza around him sure did make him realise his dreams. Congratulations, Rahul!
