Mumbai: Dancing diva Madhuri Dixit-Nene, often known as the ‘Dhak Dhak’ girl, says there were times when she would not get the steps right for a Bollywood dance number, sending her ego plummeting.
On the sets of dance reality show “So You Think You Can Dance ‘Ab India ki Baari'”, Madhuri, who is a trained Kathak dancer, disclosed how, in her initial days, she had a tough time learning Bollywood dance.
“Once you are a classical dancer, it is very difficult to adapt to other dance forms. And that time it hit my ego and I was like how can I not get the Bollywood dance since I’m such a good dancer,” Madhuri said.
Madhuri, who is seen as a judge alongside Terence Lewis and Bosco Martis in the show, will be seen giving a special tribute to Sridevi at the grand finale episode of the show, which will telecast on &TV on Sunday night, said a statement.
Choreographer Geeta Kapoor — fondly known as Geeta maa — has choreographed the finale acts of all the judges.
She said: “Choreographing Terence did make me a bit nervous but it also felt like a reunion of sorts. On the other hand, Madhuri ma’am is an accomplished dancer and although I have worked a lot with her it always feels like the first time because I am also a fan of her talent who is totally in awe of her. But it was fun choreographing the acts for the judges … we did solid masti.”
While Terence will be seen dancing to “Malhari” from “Bajirao Mastani”, Madhuri will dance to a remix version of the song “Deewani mastani” from “Bajirao Mastani” and Bosco will be seen portraying his journey through his dance.
