Following the overwhelming response to his music video ‘Meherbaan’ as its charismatic lead actor-hero (yes, I repeat actor), acclaimed dance-guru, reality TV show judge, and acclaimed choreographer Terence Lewis candidly confide that he is already getting feelers-offers to act, with a naughty smile, charismatic Terence says, I would love to romance new stunning young dancer-actresses on screen as I have done (Sarah Anjuli) in this mesmerizing music video ‘MeherBaan’ (releasing tonight). But my dream-wish-list includes Alia Bhatt-Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, and Priyanka Chopra,” enthuses Lewis who has choreographed dozens of songs in several landmark Bollywood feature films.
The ‘houseful’ live audience at PVR Theatre watching the recent preview screening of his ‘Meherbaan’ music video (S K Music Works) seemed to be fully-fidaa with euphoric excitement as they applauded and cheered Terence for his enigmatic, tantalizing screen presence. That’s because the angelic yet oomph-oozing model-actress-excellent dancer Sarah Anjuli (from Australia—half-Indian) was seen on screen gyrating and dancing to the original breezy composition created by ‘showman’ producer-composer Siddharth Kasyap (“S K Music Works”) in the vibrant video directed by (former movie-actor) style-icon rockstar Aziz Zee. The vocals penned by Raqueeb Alam are sung sensuously by Sumedha Karmahe and Raja Hasan. While the awesome, ballet-like graceful choreography is by Terence himself, the sizzler classic look and costumes are the brainchild of fashion-guru Shakir Shaikh.

Explains Aziz Zee, “Out here, in ‘Meherbaan’, super-talented Terence, who is my close-buddy for the past 18 years, is shown sporting a macho, different yet classic look. In a slick musical-video shot on snowy slopes, Terence plays a disillusioned out-of-love rock-star performer who has gone into self-imposed hibernation. One of his ardent gorgeous female fans (wow-girl dancer-actress Sarah) traces and tracks him and tries to make him bounce back), “discloses Aziz whose directorial music video ‘Jaana Hai Toh Jaa’ (S K Music Works) has crossed five million views, is also planning to direct a slick mafia-gangsters crime-thriller series ‘Once Upon a Time In Arabia’ to be shot in Dubai.
Celebrity style-icon model and now ‘COO’ of S K Music Works, Sanober Herekar –Aziz says “Everyone at SK Music Works breathes, drinks, eats, sleeps & lives music 24 X 7. Using the best & most advanced technology coupled with innovative, clutter-breaking yet fascinatingly captivating lyrical music, we are committed to bringing the most sensational musical experience to its millions of fans worldwide. At SK Music Works, we execute every musical project diligently like a big-budget movie song,” insists dynamic, charismatic Sanober.
