It’s no news that Padma Shri awardee Prabhudeva dances like a dream, while we are also fans of how Hrithik Roshan grooves on screen. But did you know that the two-time National Award-winning choreographer-actor found the Vikram Vedha star to be “magical” on the set of Farhan Akhtar’s 2004 coming-of-age war drama film, Lakshya?
Speaking during a recent media interview, the Bagheera actor opened up about his experience of choreographing Hrithik for the popular Main Aisa Kyun Hoon song. The track won him the ‘Best Choreography’ title at the 50th National Film Awards.
Commenting on Hrithik’s performance, Prabhu said, “Hrithik was magical. Shankar Mahadevan’s composition was fantastic. As I kept listening to it, it kept growing on me. That was the unique quality of that song. But the full credit for it must be given to Hrithik. Whatever I did, it looked nice on screen. He was too good. We did the entire choreography within one hour. The song was so inspiring. I could visualise it perfectly in my mind. I only had to execute it for the camera. We blocked it for one hour. Nobody would believe me. I am saying this on record for the first time. I did it in one hour.”
Also starring Amitabh Bachchan and Preity Zinta, the story of Lakshya was based on the 1999 Kargil War. It followed the journey of a laidback Delhi boy, named Karan Sheirgill, who eventually joined the Indian Army and transformed into a disciplined soldier to make his girlfriend, Romila Dutta, proud of him.
Prabhudeva was last seen in the recently released psychological romantic thriller film, Bagheera, helmed by Adhik Ravichandran. The film also stars Amyra Dastur, Sanchita Shetty and SriiMurali. Hrithik, on the other hand, shared screen space with Saif Ali Khan in Pushkar-Gayathri’s neo-noir action thriller film, Vikram Vedha. Next, he will be seen in Fighter, dubbed India’s first aerial action film, opposite Deepika Padukone.
