Farah Khan reveals how difficult it was to teach dance to Salman Khan and Jackie Shroff
Choreographer turned filmmaker Farah Khan recently appeared on the dance reality show ‘Super Dancer 3’. It was a fun-filled guru-shishya(mentor-student) episode where Farah made quite a few revelations. Among the several revelations, one was about Salman Khan and Jackie Shroff. The ‘Om Shanti Om’ director said she found it tough to teach dance to Salman and Jackie. This was revealed by Farah when judge Anurag Basu asked her which actor she finds difficult to teach dance to.
Sharing a few funny anecdotes, Farah recalled an incident when she was choreographing for the movie ‘Kabhi Na Kabhi’. She said, “Jackie Shroff was the toughest. During my initial days when I was doing this movie, my career was going to end before it started because I got a song where I had to teach dance to Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor and Pooja Bhatt .”
She also mimicked Jackie Shroff who said he can either lip-sync or do steps. “Dekh Bhidu, ya toh Mai lip-sync kar sakta hu ya toh steps, dono ek sath nahi hoga” (See, I can only lip-sync or do steps. I can’t do both together) said Farah in Jackie’s style.
While sharing a story about Salman Khan, Farah said that during one of the first screen tests of Salman Khan, she was supposed to teach dance to Salman but she ran away as she couldn’t teach him to dance. She shared, “I actually ran away after 4 hours and cried that nobody can teach you to dance, you don’t know at all. I was shocked when I came to know the makers had selected him in the movie ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya’ and when I saw the movie I was even more shocked to see how good he was in it.”
