Aishwarya always dances like a dream: Slumdog choreographer
The famous Indian choreographer Longinus Fernandes made all the actors in Slumdog Millionaire dance to his tunes and he has directed a sequence in Hollywood movie, Eat, Pray, Love. Out of all this, it was our very own Bollywood diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan bowl him over, with her ‘dream’ like dance movies.
He has choreographed one song in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s, Guzaarish, Udi Udi. When asked about this song, Longinus said, “It is very unusual. We have never seen Aishwarya doing such steps. It is very different from what she has done in the past and she has done a brilliant job with it. She is a wonderful dancer and she dances like a dream. It did not take her much time to learn the dance, but it did take some time to perfect the dance and to get in the mood of the character.”
The song is turning into a rage especially due to Aishwarya’s graceful and impressive moves in her red and black long dress. The dance director said, “Sanjay wanted to make this song unique and different one. I asked him if we can add a little bit of Spanish in it and give it a raw, earthy feel. He loved the idea, so we gave the whole dance a look, which is very rustic, so we tried to make it as natural as we can.”
Longinus has won the Filmfare Award for this famous choreography for the song ‘Pappu can’t dance saalaĆ¢€¦’in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. Bhansali and Longinus met for the first time on the sets of a dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.
When asked Longinus how he got a film with Sanjay he said, “It was not very tough for me to get this break with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He has always been fond of me. He was one of the judges on Jhalak and he told me that time that he will work with me for sure. He kept his promise.”
Guzaarish where Hrithik Roshan plays a paraplegic patient is slated to release on November 19.
