Shraddha Kapoor: My father inspires me
Shraddha Kapoor, who will be next seen in dance movie 'ABCD 2', says she is inspired by her father, actor Shakti Kapoor. The 26-year-old 'Ek Villain' actress will star alongside Varun Dhawan and Prabhudheva in director-choreographer Remo D'Souza's upcoming film.
"Apart from dance trainers, I thought of my dad (Shakti Kapoor) while dancing in 'ABCD 2'. My dad always says that when you dance you have to have a lot of energy. It has to be in your bones. You have to literally break ground," Shraddha told PTI.
The actress said she got to learn a lot from D'Souza's dancers. "We got to learn from Remo sir's dancers who are such amazing teachers and all comes from his philosophy. It was amazing; it was outstanding."
Did she get any tips from Prabhudheva, India's 'dancing king?' "Prabhudheva is amazing. He did not give as such, but we got to learn from him while shooting the film. Also he plays our guru in 'ABCD 2'. Dancing with him is a lifetime dream come true."
Shraddha is very excited about the release of 'ABCD 2' as it was her dream to play a dancer's role in films. "I am so excited I can't tell you. It is the first time I am doing a film of dancing," she said.
"I have waited for a very long time to play this role. Finally it is happening. A lot of rehearsals and sweat have gone into it," Shraddha added.
Shraddha, apart from hogging the limelight for her performances in 'Ek Villain' and 'Haider', has grabbed headlines for her singing capabilities. The actress had stolen many hearts by crooning the unplugged version of "Teri Galiyan ..." from Mohit Suri directed 'Ek Villian.'
The actress said she is taking vocal lessons from Samantha Edwards. "I am taking vocal lessons from musician and trainer Samantha Edwards. She is amazing, outstanding... such a beautiful voice," she said. Samantha is Priyanka Chopra's music trainer. "I am playing a singer's role in 'Rock On 2', therefore I needed some guidance from an expert. Samantha is good at voice modulation," she said.
