Mumbai: He’s young, dashing and a choreographer who is very much in demand! Salman Yusuf Khan is one of the most sought after choreographers in the film industry today and has proved himself already as a winner of the first season of ‘Dance Indian Dance’ on Zee TV.
Salman, who is currently weaving his magic on ‘Jhalak Dikhla Ja’ as Isha Sharvani’s dancing partner-choreographer, was spotted by director Vivek Agnihotri in one of the episodes. Vivek zeroed him down as the choreographer of his most ambitious film ‘Freedom’!!
Vivek has been in search of some natural talent and has been travelling the length & breadth of the country for the same.
When quizzed Vivek on how he decided to give Salman a break in the film he said, “ Freedom has some very different music by Maestro Rahul Sharma and the song situations are very novel. I needed someone who has no film conditioning or ideas of `what will work`. I needed very fresh and very creative songs so I zeroed on Salman as he is an `ideas` man and not just `steps` man.
‘Freedom’ is a socio-political saga which is set in the backdrop of 1970’s-2000, having a realistic & rustic take along with various dramatic elements unlike the usual masala cinema. The gripping story has been penned by Vivek Agnihotri himself and with this film he also dons the producer’s hat`
Well, after scorching the screen with his superb dance moves, let us wait and see the 70mm talent of Salman!
