Will always be grateful to Salman: Muddassar Khan
Indian Choreographer Muddassar Khan has credited superstar Salman Khan for making him a successful dancer in Bollywood.
Muddassar, who started his career in showbiz with Dabangg in which he choreographed the rustic
number <g data-gr-id="39">Humka</g> Peeni <g data-gr-id="51">Hai,</g> said the superstar is a unique performer.
"Salman is a star performer. He is very positive. There is always a scope for improvement when you choreograph for him. He adds his own style and funny elements to a dance number. He is always happy to learn. I will be grateful to him for giving me an opportunity in Bollywood," Muddassar told PTI.
The Bajrangi Bhaijaan star spotted Muddassar during a dance competition in Mumbai and offered him to choreograph <g data-gr-id="37">Humka</g> Peeni Hai.
That choreography stint was followed by songs in Ready, Bodyguard, Dabangg 2, Jai Ho, "Kick" and the upcoming release Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
"I am choreographing the whole album of 'Prem Ratan...' but I won't be able to divulge any further details about the film. It's a complete family entertainer," said Muddassar, who has choreographed for other films including <g data-gr-id="40">Mastizaade</g> and Saat Uchakkey.
Apart from his film assignments, the choreographer is back on the judging panel of dance reality show Dance India Dance 5 along with new entrants Punit Pathak and <g data-gr-id="36">Gaiti</g> Siddiqui.
Muddassar feels this season of the Zee TV show, commencing from June 27, will be more tough and competitive."This season will be a level higher than <g data-gr-id="42">it's</g> previous one. We are showing best of the best this time. It will be more competitive and performance-oriented. Even we have a mixed bag of judges. Punit is strict, <g data-gr-id="41">Gaiti</g> is towards the caring side and I have an image of funny and cool," he said.
A nationwide hunt to scout for India's most talented dancers has begun across 17 cities. Actor Mithun Chakraborty will help the contestants with his guidance and motivation as the Grandmaster on the show.
