Bebo talks about her favourite choreographer and her experience of shooting with her on Zee TV’s DID
Zee TV’s biggest talent-based reality show, Dance India Dance: Battle of the Champions has swayed the hearts of audiences with phenomenal performances showcased by the super talented contestants. With the race to the finale, the competition has got tougher and the dance champions are leaving no stone unturned to impress the judges with their mindboggling acts. This week, the viewers will be in for a treat as evergreen and legendary choreography, the master of dance, Saroj Khan will be honouring the stage of Dance India Dance to encourage the contestants and judge them.
Before the contestants could get an opportunity to showcase their talent to ‘The Mother of Dance in India’, host Karan Wahi asked the Master and her student Bebo about their experience of working together. Keeping it short and simple, Saroj Khan made a sweet remark, “All my heroines are my favourite”, having worked with plenty of stars over decades, turning fine actors into outstanding performers on screen.
Meanwhile, Kareena said, “It is very difficult to impress her (Saroj Khan)! During the shoot of Refugee, Master ji told me that you don’t know how to move your hands and legs, how did you choose to become an actress! You are Karisma’s sister. I told her(Saroj Khan) but I don’t know how to dance, Master ji. She then told me if you can’t move your hands and legs you need to dance with your face. She used to ask me to observe her closely and watch her face when she used to perform an entire song with her expressions. This is the reason why every heroine has become a heroine today- It is only because of Master ji’s expressions. That’s all!”
She further revealed, “I used to lock myself in the bathroom and practice all of Master ji’s expressions because my mother always told me that if I want to be an actress, I must only watch Master ji’s songs and see the close ups of all the heroines. I used to really practice them and I think that’s the reason why we have all become heroines today. It was only because Master ji used to show us every expression before the shot.”
A salute to Master ji aka Saroj Khan for giving Bollywood those perfect heroines we have adored and loved for decades altogether.
Moreover, this week the contestants will have to incorporate Master ji’s iconic hook-steps from her super-hit songs into their performances. In addition to this, for the first time on Indian television, internet’s dance sensations Manan Sachdeva, Sonali Bhaduria, Kiran J and DanceFit Crew will visit the sets to cheer for and support their favourite dance champions in this race to the finale and entertain all with their power-packed performances. Unreal Crew’s act to ‘Bhumro Bhumro’ left everyone mesmerised and they received a standing ovation from the judges. Mukul’s performance to ‘Ramta Jogi’ mesmerised all. Also, our stunning Bebo received many surprises as the team of Dance India Dance celebrated her birthday on-sets!
