Mumbai 143 India’s Biggest Flash mob

Mumbai 143 Biggest Flash Mob

Mumbai 143 flash mob that is Mumbai I love you, India’s Biggest flash mob was created at Gateway of India by 1300 people gathering and dancing to celebrate the spirit of Mumbai. People say that they love Mumbai but they can’t come as one and celebrate this strong emotion/spirit. Raghani Studios identified the need and created an original foot tapping number (song) to celebrate Mumbai’s spirit.


Here is flash interview with  Mr. Kamal Raghani of Raghani Studios,  man behind the “Mumbai 143” flash mob.

Kamal Raghani

1. How did this concept came on your mind ?

Everything started with Mumbai I love you which later converted into Mumbai “143” 1 stands for ‘I’, 4 for ‘Love’ and 3 for ‘You’, that is how a common man of Mumbai is expressing his love for the city.

2. How long it took to implement your ideas ?

Once the title “Mumbai 143” developed and we wanted to portray it in very appealing style. so thought of doing Flash Mob. We wrote the lyrics keeping the Mumbaikar lifestyle in mind and recorded the song in foot tapping number with Feel of Anthem.

3. How did you find so many dancers and how long rehearsals were done ?

Everything was going and we reached to a level where we thought of doing it in grand format. we needed people for this flashmob for that we approached St. Xaviers and St. Marys school students gave them training for 8 days with a team of 18 choreographers.

4. It must be very difficult involving so many school children, getting permissions, security arrangements ?

As grand as the idea was, only a grand location could justify. Nothing could replace the picturesque Gateway of India, which identifies Mumbai, where Biggest negative event have taken place. We anyhow wanted to do it at Gateway of India itself and convert the negative energy to positive.

Being a Film Maker, I had the experience and skills to visualize the complete flash mob before hand. To capture the splendid moments in a very cinematic way, I arranged for team of 12 cameramen, gave them a accurate perspective and prepared them for what it is going to be. Finally on the day I actually felt how it is to take last breath and once the confidence was on, we did it in five min.  Creating, India’s biggest Flash Mob. The rest is history.
