Actor and director Saahil Prem on his love for dance, his latest film 'Mad About Dance' and more
Since the film is titled Mad About Dance, does your character in the film get to dance a lot? Did you have to train a lot for the role?
Saahil Prem: The film is about dance battles and I am part of most of those. We reached the UK almost a month in advance in order to rehearse for these dance performances.
Do you enjoy dancing?
Saahil: I have been dancing since as long as I can remember. Music and dance have been my passions all along and they continue to be so.
Are you trained in any particular dance form?
Saahil: No, not really. I have no formal training in music or dance...I picked up both on the way.
Hrithik Roshan was the last Bollywood star to make waves with his unique dancing skills in his debut film. Do you intend to do so as well?
Saahil: Identities are moulds created by people. Hrithik Roshan is a lot more than just a great dancer. As a director and actor, I hope I can do more than just dance.
Who are your idols when it comes to dancing?
Saahil: I would have to say Salah Benlemqawanssa from France. He is the best in the world and you will see that for yourself in the film.
Anyone in Bollywood whose dancing skills you really admire?
Saahil: Govinda and Hrithik Roshan. Also, Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit.
