Deepika-Priyanka dance face-off will be compared with 'Dola Re Dola': Remo
Speaking about Deepika-Priyanka dance face-off in 'Bajirao Mastani', choreographer Remo D'Souza said, "It is going to be a tough song for all of us because a straight comparison is bound to happen with Madhuri-Ash's 'Dola Re Dola'."
The shooting of Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra's dance face-off began on Monday at Film City, Goregaon in Mumbai.
Speaking about the song, choreographer Remo D'Souza said, "It is going to be a tough song for all of us because a straight comparison is bound to happen with Madhuri-Ash's 'Dola Re Dola'."
Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone
Priyanka and Deepika have been rehearsing at least six hours a day for the dance sequence. Remo said, "After the rehearsal we saw their feet and they are already chipped off. And we shoot this song in the exterior on a concrete floor and it will be for 12 days."
It maybe recalled here that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's feet, too, got chipped off during the 'Nimbooda' song in 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam'.
Remo is dedicating the song to Saroj Khan. He said,"She is the best when it comes to Indian dance forms. And I always look up to her when I am doing such songs."
The song will have a bit of Lavani folk and classical dancing. When asked if he has choreographed such a song before, Remo said, "I really don't know why people think I have not done song these kind of songs. I had one Lavani song with Urmila Matondkar."
Remo has known Priyanka and Deepika from the time they started their careers. When asked who picked up the steps faster, Remo said, "Both were equal and I consider both of them as best dancers in the industry today."
