SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD Aditi Gupta began her non-stop dance performance in an attempt to set a world record at Gandhi Hall on Wednesday with a Ganpati Vandana.
The programme began at 9.30 am and Aditi took a 10-minute break every two hours. While talking to Hindustan Times during her second break Aditi said that she was confident of achieving her target of dancing for 85 hours. Aditi is performing on various filmy numbers and has already danced to 100 songs.
Her mother, Anita Gupta said that doctors were monitoring Aditi’s diet and health and a physiotherapist was massaging her legs for 2-3 minutes during each break to relax her muscles. Dr O P Nankana said that Aditi seemed to be fit enough to perform for so many hours and it would not affect her body adversely if proper precautions were taken.
Not only Aditi’s family members, including her father Santosh Gupta and sister Akrati, but also many of her relatives plan to remain awake all night to support her. Dev Joshi from Fusion Entertainment said that a thick carpet has been spread on the floor for Aditi’s convenience and all instructions given by the fitness instructor were being followed.
A ‘havan’ was performed at Gandhi Hall before the commencement of her programme. State PWD Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya attended the inaugural session of the programme.
It remains to be seen whether Aditi completes her record dance performance, but for now she seems to be high on confidence.
