When Shah Rukh Khan turned choreographer!
Mumbai: Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan is not only a livewire actor but also a dedicated stage performer, who always believes in giving his hundred percent.
Recently, Shah Rukh hosted the ‘Zee Cine Awards 2012’ in Macau and was so engrossed in rehearsals that he skipped his food and sleep to rehearse non-stop in order to make the award show a great success.
Apparently, SRK even coached Shaimak Davar’s dance troupe on the steps of ‘Chammak Challo’ - the song from his film ‘RA.One’, whose steps he knew better than anyone else.
Talking to a daily, a dancer said, “After the awards ceremony was over around 1:30 AM, we still had to shoot the ‘Chammak Challo’ act with Shah Rukh and since it was meant to be one of those impromptu jigs, it was not entirely choreographed and rehearsed. Besides, as a team, we had not performed ‘Chammak Challo’ in the past. So, planning the steps and shooting the act could well have turned into an all night-ordeal. Thankfully, Shah Rukh saved the situation. ‘Chammak Challo’, being an act he has performed to several times over, SRK took over the mantle of choreographer and showed us the steps. With his intervention, we were able to miraculously wrap up by 4 AM. He turned out to be such a God send! He even sweetly hugged all the dancers at the end for having stayed up so late to shoot.”
Well, that’s the stuff superstars are made off!
