Shahid Kapoor turns choreographer for Priyanka Chopra

The Teri Meri Kahaani hero steps into a new role for his onscreen lady love

While we all know that Priyanka Chopra will be paying tribute to Rekha (who will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award) at the IIFA 2012 by dancing to her famous numbers, the younger babe is also gearing up to perform to songs from her upcoming release, Teri Meri Kahaani.

We hear that Priyanka’s leading man Shahid Kapoor will also accompany her on stage. In fact, the actor will be choreographing their act himself! Shahid seems to be the karta dharta of this year’s IIFA (considering the absence of the Khans). Apart from hosting and dancing to Tamil numbers, the actor has also turned choreographer for the awards show. While Prabhu Deva has choreographed all the other acts, Shahid decided to take on the responsibility when it came to his naach-gaana with Priyanka.

Priyanka, who is super confident of Shahid’s dancing skills – he is a pet student of Shiamak Davar, remember? – immediately agreed to dance to his tunes. Buzz is that the two will definitely groove to Jabse mere dil me uff from TMK, which has become quite popular. An over-enthusiastic Sasha decided to emulate his guru Shiamak and went out of his way to perfect the number. A spy who was present during a rehearsal tells us that Shahid wasn’t really a tough taskmaster and the duo had a blast dancing together. Is this a sign of rekindling love? Who knows, but we can certainly keep our fingers crossed!
