Mumbai: Ace choreographer Shiamak Davar, who shot to fame for choreographing Yash Chopra`s `Dil To Pagal Hai`, feels dancing element in movies is very little and that there is no experiments in terms of dance forms in films.

"There is not much dancing in movies these days...lot of other elements are added. The dancing element is slashed in films. Also, we do not see experiments in dance forms or styles in movies...more or less everything is same," Shiamak told reporters.

"Even in reality shows, which is providing platform to many dancers, have more stunts and less dancing," he added.

Shaimak`s directorial debut, `Dancer`, a film based on dance, will have children from slums.

The film is a story of an underdog who becomes an achiever with the help of a mentor. It will also have cameos by Bollywood celebrities.

"Through my movie, I will show new style of Indian contemporary never seen before," Shiamak said.

On the film, Shiamak said, "I am doing the movie for slum kids. In my 25 years of career, I have found that there is lot of talent in small villages...slum pockets. To groom this, untrained talent is a challenge."

Shiamak, who, will also be seen acting in the film, said.

"I am going to play Shiamak, the talent hunter who will discover talented children. Through this film I want to get dancing talent out from streets and slums," he said.
