Madhuri Dixit excited about Priyanka-Deepika’s lavani song


Madhuri Dixit, who is a trained classical dancer and ruled million hearts with her contemporary dance forms in movies is looking forward to Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone’s lavani number in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’.

"Anything about dance always excites me, so I am very, very excited to see Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone's 'lavani' dance in 'Bajirao Mastani'," Madhuri said here on Thursday during the announcement of Mumbai's first ever Contemporary Dance Festival, Jugnee

In ‘Bajirao Mastani’, Priyanka and Deepika will perform a 'lavani' dance together and the ladies will be choreographed by Kathak maestro, Birju Maharaj. The song is touted to be an important part of the film.

Madhuri had earlier teamed up with Karisma Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a group dance song and both the dance numbers become a chartbuster.

Recounting ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’ in which Madhuri had a face-off with Karisma, the actress said, "I had a competition with Karisma in 'Dil To Pagal Hai'. It was wonderful. Shiamak (Davar) was the choreographer for that."

"The dancing was a little more jazz and contemporary and I was doing that style for the first time. I enjoyed when we danced. Karisma and I got along very well, so we had a great time," she added.

Recalling her ‘Devdas’ days in which she had danced "Dola re dola" song with Aishwarya, Madhuri said: "When I did 'Dola re dola' with Aishwarya, Saroj Khan-ji had choreographed it and it was terrific. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has picturised it."

"There were many trolly shots and long shots and after a long time a song was being picturised on that level", concludes Madhuri.
