It attracts many people from various sections of the society. As per information provided by the organizers on the official website of Chorus (http://www.chorusfest.in), the Chorus team has always been fascinated by carnival rides. Carnival holds in itself something that amazes everyone. It further states, “For us, it’s precisely the theme and excitement for carnivals that made us adopt it as a theme for Chorus 2014.”
The long list of celebrities and guests further adds to the excitement and voracious wait for the students, organizers and everyone else involved with it. Among the celebrities are, popular Bollywood singer Sukhwinder Singh, film star Vaani Kapoor, popular comedian Sunil Grover aka Gutthi who rose to fame through Comedy Nights with Kapil.
Like every year, one of the popular event Rowdies would be judged by the MTV Roadies’s popular duo Raghu and Rajiv.
