The dream of famous contemporary dancer Shakti Mohan is to choreograph songs featured in the films directed by National award winner Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
The title song of Farah Khan’s “Tees Maar Khan” has shown a brief emergence of Shakti Mohan and she was also shaking a leg in the song -“Aa Re Pritam Pyaare” from Akshay Kumar-starrer “Rowdy Rathore”. She also co-assisted noted choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant for “Kamli” song in Aamir Khan starrer “Dhoom 3”.
Talking to a media group, Shakti said, “I am looking at doing choreography. I am doing shows with A R Rahman and International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Rocks, doing live shows I am getting into the choreography world which is new to me. I would love to choreograph a song for Sanjay Leela Bhansali… that’s my dream. He met my sister once and told her how great dancer I am. I was overwhelmed to hear that.”
Shakti Mohan has come a long way, from being a contestant on dance reality show “Dance India Dance”to being a mentor on third season of “Dance +” a dance reality show.
She says,”For me everything is a dream as I did not imagine I would reach this far. I want to dance and I am glad I am getting opportunities for it (dancing).”
Shakti also reveals that the next season of “Dance +” will have global dancers competing with the participants of the show.
“We have Remo’s squad… he is bringing international dance artistes… they will be competing with these talents.Talent is evolving, today people are exposed to You Tube. Through our show we are looking for someone who have their own unique style and not copy anyone. It’s challenging to show something new,” she adds.
“Dance+3” will premiere on Star Plus on July 1.
