Shabina Khan, the choreographer behind now viral dance steps of “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”, says working on the Salman Khan-Sonam Kapoor starrer was a life changing experience and a dream come true.
Initially, Shabina was offered two songs to choreograph but later she was told to do all the tracks.
“Salman and Sooraj (director) saw my choreography for the title track and ‘Jalte Diye’. They liked my style and decided to keep me for the other songs as well,” Shabina, who spent one and a half years on this project, told PTI.
While she had worked with Salman previously, she was new to Sonam and found it challenging.
“I spent three months researching on Sonam’s body language. I watched her previous films like ‘Saawariya’ and also her interviews. I choreographed the steps accordingly,” she said.
The choreographer who received fame from the signature dance move in the title track of the movie, is in awe of Sonam’s beauty and grace.
“I mixed my dance movements with her grace. Sonam is princess like. I am a huge fan of Waheeda Rehman and I feel she is the new age Waheeda Rehman,” she said.
The critically acclaimed choreographer hopes to work with Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff in the future.
“My goal is to showcase my knowledge in dance and work in more films like PRDP,” she said.
