We usually think of Konkona Sen Sharma as a tough cookie but the thought of having to dance in the same scene with Madhuri Dixit had her almost running away from the set.
She said it was really scary, “Sharing acting space with Madhuri didn’t make me that nervous. I knew I could manage to hold my own in that department. But one has to be totally crazy to even attempt to match dance steps with Madhuri. I thought I’d faint when I had to dance with her.”
Adding, “Fortunately, our choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant gave me steps that didn’t make me look foolish in front of Madhuri. In fact, the film requires unequal dancing between Madhuri and the rest of us in the cast.”
The film that this scary scene is part of is Aaja Nachle which is Madhuri Dixit’s comeback film. Everyone from the Bollywood industry, as well as fans everywhere cannot wait for this film to hit theaters.
About working with the wonderful Madhuri Konkona said, “Madhuri Dixit is amazing! We had such a ball. We hung around together even when we weren’t shooting. Madhuri is such a big star. But she’s so chilled. So fun loving and totally unaffected.”
Konkona’s career is going brilliantly and she is regarded as one of the best actresses working in Bollywood today. She is being offered many of the best roles but she says, “It’s not like I am getting only plum roles. A lot of what comes my way doesn’t inspire me. But, yes, Aaja Nachle is very special.”
