He has danced his way to fame, and has even coached and choreographed some of Bollywood's biggest stars, he is none other than Shiamak Davar. Well known choreographer Shiamak seems to have had his fill with just choreographing and will soon be seen in a new avatar, of a director. Shiamak Davar, who started his career by choreographing for films with Yash Chopra's Dil To Pagal Hai, will be directing his film titled A Slumdog Millionaire Goes Dancing.On the other hand, we wondered whether Yash Raj would be producing the film, but on the contrary, Percept Pictures has stepped in as producers. Apparently, the film itself is about a bunch of slum children being trained to participate in a dance competition. Shiamak has been thinking of directing a film for a while now and there is no surprise that his first film revolves around dancing considering that he has made a career out of it.
Sources within Percept have confirmed the news saying that yes they will be producing the film which is being directed by Shiamak, while the kids who feature in the film will be chosen after auditions. Further it is also being said that good friends and former students like Shahid Kapoor and Ruslaan Mumtaz may make guest appearances in the film.
