'Bollywood dancing' world record created

world Updated: Jul 08, 2008 09:54 IST

More than 200 people danced together to the tune of a hit Indian song in the city's Trafalgar square to set a world record for 'Bollywood dancing' by most number of people.

The five-minute routine that engaged 212 people simultaneously had people of all ages and backgrounds dancing to the popular song Om Shanti Om from the blockbuster Shah Rukh Khan-starrer of the same name.

The feat achieved by the dancers, who braved inclement weather for the same, won them a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

Hosted by Strictly Come Dancing's Erin Boag, the event encouraged young people to break several world records including largest number of football freestyle tricks in one minute.

Organisers admitted that weather had put many people off, with attendance down as compared to the 10,000 who took part last year.

The event was part of a dance-themed festival organised by BBC Blast which caters to teenagers and young adults.
