Arshad Warsi returns as choreographer

Mumbai, July 11, 2013 (IANS):

Before he became an actor, Arshad Warsi was a choreographer -- and he returns to choreographing after 20 years with his forthcoming film "Calling Mr. Joe B Carvalho" in which he directs a song.

Arshad says dance is his passion.

"I am enjoying it and it feels good. Dancing is my passion and I enjoy dancing. It has been ages since I did my kind of dance. So I am enjoying it now. I have done the choreography, movements, and body language," the 45-year-old said here Wednesday on location of the song.

"Calling Mr. Joe B Carvalho" is a comedy that also stars Shakti Kapoor, Soha Ali Khan, Geeta Basra and Javed Jaffrey, among others.

Arshad, who made his acting debut in 1996 with "Tere Mere Sapne", now hopes to choreograph at least one song in each of his films.

"I felt I won't be able to do it. But now I feel like choreographing at least one song in every film like Prabhudheva," he said.

Arshad used to choreograph for plays and jazz performances and accepts that dance today has completely changed. However, it is not tough to adapt to the current trend.

"I had never done film songs, I used to do English, modern jazz and plays. I did just one film, the title credit role track of 'Roop Ki Raani Choron Ka Raja'. It was very different. Definitely, the trend has changed, what happened then and what happens today is completely different," Arshad said.

"But if you are a dancer, then it is not tough to adapt. A dancer is a dancer. if I can do jazz, then I can also do modern jazz, break and Hindi dance also. Give me anything, I can even do Bharatnatyam if taught," he added.

In 1991, Arshad won the Indian dance competition and later went on to bag the fourth prize in the modern jazz category in 1992 World Dance championship held in London.
He even opened a dance school called 'Awesome'.
