Tough for classical dancers to adapt to other dance forms: MadhuriJul 18, 2016 IANS
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.
