MUMBAI: Dancing diva Madhuri Dixit once shared that she always wanted to be a choreographer. Having recently got a chance to fulfil her dream via TV show So You Think You Can Dance – Ab India ki Baari, she wasted no time in taking the decision.
Madhuri, often called the ‘Dhak Dhak Girl’ of Bollywood, is a judge on the TV show, and will also choreograph Terence Lewis, Bosco Martis and the star cast of Do Lafzon Ki Kahani, Randeep Hooda and Kajal Aggarwal, for the song Tooh.
“I have always been choreographed in my entire career till date and I always wanted to choreograph myself. I am going to fulfil my wish on the show by choreographing Terence, Bosco, Randeep and Kajal on a special dance form that I had in my mind,” Madhuri said in an interview.
Madhuri choreographed them on a special dance form created by her, called ‘Chavanni, Atthanni and Rupaiyya’. Chavanni stands for right movement of the hip, Atthanni for left movement of the hip and Rupaiyya for back movement of the hips. The entire set was in splits after the fun and entertaining act.
