Amritsar, Jan.14 : The striking and offbeat message against drugs through a dance performance by 8726 students of 40 schools in the first week of October allowed Amritsar to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.
The Amritsar District Administration has received intimation in this regard from the Records Management Team of the Guinness World Records informing that the largest Bollywood dance performance of students held at local Khalsa College has secured entry in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Overwhelmed by this development, Deputy Commissioner Ravi Bhagat, the man behind this initiative, today officially announced that the students had made the city by using the medium of song and dance to spread the message against drugs.
Bhagat said the nearly 9000 school students were overwhelmed when informed about their record achievement.
He added that the event had been made possible by the district administration, the Swami Vivekanand Drug de-addiction Center, the Pankaj and Preeti Dance Academy and the Sun Foundation.
The earlier record was held by 4428 people in Mumbai who performed on 'Dance India Dance' in 2012.
