Not everyone swears by Salman Khan’s dancing skills, and Shabina Khan Ansari, the choreographer for Salman in the upcoming movie Dabangg, indeed had a task cut out for herself while filming the songs composed by Sajid-Wajid.
According to Shabina Khan, “Salman surrenders to the vision of a choreographer, but also gives a lot of his own inputs. Not just that, Salman always does the dance steps in his own unique style.”
“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,” Shabina Khan Ansari said.
Ansari 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 in the film, 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.
Directed by Abhinav Kashyap, ‘Dabangg’ introduces Sonakshi Sinha opposite Salman. The movie has been produced by Arbaaz Khan.
