Hidden desire

'I want to make Vidya dance'

Hopeful: Vidya Balan

“I want to make Vidya Balan dance. I like her expressions. I remember seeing her in Lage Raho Munnabhai. Her expressions in the song Pal Pal were extremely good,” said Saroj.

After a successful first season of Nachle Ve With Saroj Khan, she is once again returning to the small screen with the second season of her show and this time, choreographer Terence Lewis will be joining her. Both the choreographers will be teaching their unique style of dancing to popular television celebrities.

The line-up includes Neha Marda, Naman Shaw, Shaleen Bhanot, and Jay Bhanushali among others. All the celebrities will be competing with each other every week and then ultimately battle it out in the grand finale. The show titled Nachle Ve With Saroj and Terence goes on air on October 25 on Imagine TV.

Asked if the advent of international dance forms like hip hop, jazz, has suppressed the classical dance form, she said, “I respect all dance forms, but I blame the parents for the suppression of classical dance forms because they never encouraged their kids to learn them.”

Saroj, who has been in the industry for over two decades, also expressed her distress over the change in the kind of Bollywood dancing over the years, but is confident that the era of elegant dancing will return. “In our time, actresses used to be fully covered when they used to dance, but today, you see them dancing in lesser clothes. I hate those kind of songs,” she said.

“But life is a circle. I am sure that the previous era, where actresses used to dance with elegance will return. I have signed five films now where the directors want to have choreography like that of Dola Re,” she added.
