Can Kangna Ranaut match steps with Madhuri Dixit in ‘Dedh Ishqiya’?
The Tezz actor is going to facing a tough challenge trying to keep up with the ace dancing diva
In Abhishek Choubey’s Dedh Ishqiya Kangna Ranaut will be seen matching steps with dancing diva Madhuri Dixit. Uh ho! Now that means the Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai actor will have to work really hard on her dancing moves, right? Absolutely! And director Chaubey is amply aware of this fact and knows quite well that the Tanu Weds Manu gal is hardly twinkletoes. That’s why he has asked Ms Ranaut to brush up her dancing skills for the sequel to Ishqiya that will also feature Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi, apart from Kangy and Mads.
“Music was very important to Ishqiya and so it will remain in Dedh Ishqiya, though this time the songs and music would be very different. Yes, Madhuri would be doing a lot of singing and dancing,” Chaubey said in an interview.
What’s more, with this one Chaubey aims at reviving the genre of Muslim socials, which we do not see much in the movies nowadays. “I want to revive that old-world Nawabi charm of ornate architecture, the tehzeeb and the adaas that we saw in Muslim socials like Mere Mehboob, Mere Huzoor, Chaudhvin Ka Chand and Nikaah,” the director said. And he revealed that the female leads in this movie will share loads of dance sequences.
So we assume that Kangna will have to sweat a lot to get her adaayein right, especially when she shares considerable screen space with the ever-graceful Madhuri Dixit. Phew! We wish you all the luck, dear Kangy.
