I tried to copy Prabhu Deva: Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor feels privileged to be choreographed by Prabhu Deva in upcoming film 'R Rajkumar' and says 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 (Prabhu Deva) has the midas touch of teasing women in tapori style (through dance in films)," Shahid told reporters here at the music launch of the film.

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. 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. Also starring Sonakshi Sinha and Sonu Sood, the film is set to release on December 6. Sonu 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'."
