“This is not the first time I am working with Salman. I've worked with him even earlier when I used to be an assistant with Ganesh Acharya. But now he has changed; today he is technically stronger. He also gives his inputs for steps,” said Shabina Khan Ansari.

Dabangg, a film set in a small town of Uttar Pradesh, will feature Salman in the role of a cop.  His younger brother and actor Arbaaz Khan has produced the film while Abhinav Kashyap is the director. The film is slated for a September release.

Shabina has choreographed two songs in the film, a romantic track and a hardcore dance number. She gave Salman steps suiting his character.

“I created steps for Salman keeping in mind his character and image. He is playing a cop, so I didn't want his moves to be professional like a dancer's. He plays a straightforward person in the film; we kept all that in mind,” said the choreographer.

“Even Salman really pushed himself. Everyone liked his dancing in Wanted; so he wanted to improve upon that,” she added. So what's the strong point in Salman's dancing? “It's his style,” said Shabina.

“He has his own way of doing steps. Even if I teach him something, he will do it in his own way. But it actually comes out to be nice and the audiences love it,” she added.
Dabangg also stars Sonakshi Sinha, daughter of veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha. However, she doesn't get to shake a leg in the film.

“Sonakshi will not be seen dancing in the film. Her character doesn't demand that, but even in the romantic song, where you see her moving a little, you can see rhythm in her body. She has a music sense and I'm sure she will be a great dancer,” said Shabina.
