Mithun Chakraborty’s Dance show enters Limca Book Of Records

Mithun Chakraborty’s Dance show enters Limca Book Of Records.

Two weeks before he returns with the third season of Dance India Dance on Zee TV, actor-judge Mithun Chakraborty is on cloud nine. The original Bengali show, Dance Bangla Dance that is also judged by him, has entered the Limca Book Of Records for running 126 new episodes with the same contestants and judges for an entire calendar year.

Next, the show’s broadcaster, Zee Bangla, is eyeing the Guinness Book Of World Records for the feat.

“When we started that show, I didn’t know where it would lead us because it was an experiment. It was a new format that Zee had developed. We were trying to find genuine dancing talent in West Bengal. And look where it has reached today. It’s not only one of the most-watched shows there, but is also considered to be a huge platform for dancers,” beams Mithun, who will be back as the Kya Baat grandmaster on the Zee TV dance show next weekend.

“I’m sure, there aren’t many shows in the world that go on for that long in a year, without a break and with the same faces. The ratings also didn’t dip.”

The National Award-winner has also taken over from former Indian skipper, Sourav Ganguly, on the highly watched Bengali chat show, Dadagiri.

He has already completed a bunch of episodes and has taken over from the previous host, on the popularity charts too.

“I didn’t take on the show thinking of that,” he says, adding, “I was offered the show after Sourav left because of reasons best known to him and the channel. I’ve always enjoyed working with the network because I like the way they function. There’s no way one can complain about anything. And I had the dates they wanted, it worked out smoothly.”

Longest sword in the world

Longest sword in the world set Guinness World Record by Fujairah bags

Fujairah: The emirate of roundabouts, Fujairah, has recently been bestowed a fourth Guinness World Record. It hosts the longest sword in the world.

This distinction has been made possible owing to the newly unveiled Al Saif Roundabout, at the heart of which stands the much-coveted 14.94-metre sword.

Although the sword was unveiled on December 2 to coincide with the UAE's 40th National Day celebrations, the award was announced on December 16 at the grand finale of the Al Saif (traditional sword) Championship for The Crown Prince Award held at the Fujairah Fort.

Guinness World Records manager and adjudicator Tarika Vara announced that Fujairah had clinched the Guinness World Record bid yet once again. She presented the new world record certificate to the Crown Prince of Fujairah, Shaikh Mohammad Bin Hamad Bin Mohammad Al Sharqi, at the sword arena in Fujairah Fort.

The Al Saif championship is now in its second year. This time around, the sword dancing is taking place across six weeks at a larger arena and in tandem with several other cultural activities and displays at the Fujairah Heritage Village.

Inaugural edition

The awards ceremony attained two Guinness World Records in its inaugural edition in 2010. Fujairah had won world records for the largest youla (traditional Emirati dance) with 285 participants as well as the highest sword throw last year. It was Hazza Sulaiman Al Shehi, a swordsman from Dibba, Fujairah, who attained the second record when he threw his sword 21.275 metres up in the air.

According to Shaikh Mohammad, The Crown Prince Award was conceptualised with the vision and support of his father, His Highness Shaikh Hamad Bin Mohammad Al Sharqi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah. Besides highlighting the culture and traditions in the UAE, this award ceremony also helps spread awareness about Fujairah's history and deep-rooted heritage among the younger generation, Shaikh Mohammad said.

During the unveiling of the sword on December 2, Shaikh Mohammad dedicated the iconic structure to the UAE leadership and its people on the occasion of the country's 40th anniversary.
