We were lucky enough to be a part of the unveiling of Madhuri Dixit‘s very own dance app which allows everyone in every part of the world to imbibe some of her dance magic! Amazing, right? Read on to know what went down!
The event kicked off with an explosive performance by a select few dancers and choreographers. Bharatnatyam, kathak, bollywood, jazz and some kick-ass duets were some of what took place on stage!
The video that was showcased had an array of people of all ages, from all over the world, learning Madhuri’s moves and uploading them onto the website. SO cool!
Just before Madhuri came onto stage she introduced Dr. Shriram Nene as her ‘literal better half’ – sooooo cute! The two seemed at ease on stage together and we have to give Dr. Nene so much credit for standing by his wife and working so hard at making #DWM possible, after a whopping 17 years of being a cardiovascular surgeon in U.S.A!
We got to see a sneak peek of everything that went into creating the app for all of you! This included some heart-warming footage of all the choreographers and all the fun that took place behind the camera! At this stage, there wasn’t a being in the room without a smile on their face. :)
Saroj Khan and Subhash Ghai were present to show their support. Infact Subhash ji had the sweetest things to say about Madhuri. He spoke of of how Madhuri was to do a dance for his film Karma (one of the first films she did with Subhash ji) and Saroj Khan had called him to tell him that Madhuri was uncomfortable with Bollywood dancing, having done only kathak in the past. So Subhash ji came onto set and spoke to Madhuri himself. He told her not to observe just Saroj Khan’s body and movements, but to watch her face and dance with expression. Madhuri took Subhash ji’s advice on board and the legend we know today, never looked back! Amazing, right?!
It’s amazing how many choreographers and fitness experts have come together to make all of this possible. Terence Lewis, Saroj Khan & Ashley Lobo were a few who were present at the event. It’s so gratifying to know that you’re being taught by some of the country’s most renowned!
This was by far the highlight of the afternoon and watching the dancing diva on stage, LIVE, is just another experience altogether – still star-struck!
