Shahid Kapoor feels privileged to be choreographed by Prabhu Deva in his upcoming film titled R... Rajkumar and even admits that he tried hard to match dance steps with the choreographer-turned-director .
"Prabhu Dheva and I are from very different schools of dancing. I have never danced in this style before. (the tapori style). He has the midas touch of teasing women in tapori style (through dance in films)," Shahid said at the music launch of R... Rajkumar.
Shahid thought he was a good dancer till he started working with Prabhu Deva. "I used to rehearse for four-five hours. He has worked really hard to make me dance like this," Shahid said. CLICK HERE FOR MORE PHOTOS OF THE MUSIC LAUNCH
The 32-year-old actor took a lot of time to get a dance step right in the song 'Gandi Baat'. "I had to rehearse a lot for it. I think its a privilege to be choreographed by him. I just tried to copy him as much as I could in all the songs," Shahid said.
The film which stars Sonakshi Sinha as the lady lead is set to release on December 6. Sonu Sood too plays a vital role in the film and he too spoke a little the dance he learnt from Prabhu Deva. He said, "I am a bad dancer. Whatever I have managed to do is all because of Prabhu Deva. I hope I did 5 per cent of what he had expected out of me. This song 'Kadhu Katega' will be my 'Munni Badnaam'.
