Pandit Birju Maharaj to choreograph Madhuri Dixit in Dedh Ishqiya

The Kathak maestro will again sprinkle some magic dust on the dance floor. Are you ready?

After rumours that Vishal Bhardwaj’s Dedh Ishqiya starring Madhuri Dixit Nene-Naseruddin Shah-Arshad Warsi-Huma Qureshi will go on floors only next year in January, the air was cleared by Madhuri’s tweet which said, “Cheers guys. Totally excited. Am prepping for Dedh Ishqiya shoot. Looking forward to working with everyone on the team!”

Post that, Mads went on to tweet about the “phenomenal” and “dramatic” scenes that she was shooting for on the sets of this movie. But recently, the actor shared a news that made us squeal with delight. “So looking forward to work with Pt.Birju Maharajji again! Working on the song today. Super excited!,” she posted on her microblogging site. W-O-W!

Now if we remember right, Pandit Birju Maharaj had choreographed Madhuri and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s song Dola re dola from Devdas. And it turned out to be one magical sequence. Agreed?

So this news too makes us expect a dance sequence akin to the previous one. Yes, the bar has been placed very high. And will the Madhuri Dixit-Pt Birju Maharaj partnership be able to enthrall us once more? Time to wait and watch out for this number from Dedh Ishqiya, peeps!
