Chennai : The reality dance competitions show Maanada…Mayilada…, which is running successfully with its tenth consecutive season on Tamil satellite channel ”Kalaignar TV” has been recognized by the Guinness Book of Records for having achieved the creation of ”Largest Ames Room Illusion”.
This historic achievement has been attained for the first time ever in the worldwide television industry.
Maanada…Mayilada…the dance talent hunt show being aired on every Sunday 7:30 pm on Kalaignar TV is on its 10th leg of its marathon run, continuously non-stop ever since the channel was floated. Many participants in the previous seasons of this reality show have found a place in the silver screen.
Directed by the most popular choreographer in South Indian film Industry ”Kala Master”, She is known for her uniqueness in introducing new features like on stage rain dance, fire dance with extravagantly realistic sets for each performance. Now she had achieved the peak of recognition by winning the ”Guiness Book of Records”.
The officials from the ”Guinness Book of Records” visited AVM studios at Chennai on last Saturday, the 18th April 2015, where the reality show is being televised.
As part of the show, an illumination was created where characters were shown in different dimensions. Applying their yardsticks for recognition of any event as a world feat, the team finally conferred the Guinness Certificate for Maanada…Mayilada…season 10, for having executed a record feat in conformity with the rules set for the largest ”Ames Room Illusion”. This is the first time any reality show has been conferred with a certificate by the Guinness Book of Records.
To understand how the record is being achieved, the record brief says that ”The set will be designed for the Ames Room Optical Illusion against an appropriate background shot with single camera. The viewers will not see that an Ames room is being used for the performance given by the four pairs of dancers. When they change their positions from one side to another, a person seen in one corner will always appear substantially smaller than when seen in the other with no VFX / Graphics. He or she appears to be growing and shrinking rather than approaching and receding”.
Ms. Lucia Sinigagliesi, the adjudicator of Guinness Records, who flew down from London for this, pronounced formally and handed over the certificate to Mr. P. Amirtham, the director of Kalaignar TV Network.
Kalaignar TV is airing the Guinness Record winning episode of Maanada…Mayilada…on 3rd May, Sunday at 7:30 pm.
