To become an all-round actor, John Abraham ropes in Ahmed Khan to improve his dancing skills

John Abraham just can’t wait to get to the top of the Bollywood ladder. With his production work going full swing and several recent hits in his kitty, all the actor needs to do to ace the Bollywood curve is to be able to shake his leg in style.

And to do it, John has hired choreographer Ahmed Khan to teach him the tricks of the trade. Ahmed has also made actors like Shahid Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor dance to his tunes.

The choreographer says, “John will soon become the John Travolta of India. I love to make him dance. Contrary to his earlier self, he is more forthcoming about rehearsals and has lost weight and his muscles, which helps him be flexible. He wants to become a complete actor.”

Ahmed also feels John is looking younger than before and has immense dedication to pull off the deed.

Two music tracks from John’s recent release Race 2 were choreographed by Ahmed and so was a song picturised on John’s character in Sanjay Gupta’s next. Another song Na Jaane Kaha Se Aaya Hai, has also been directed and produced by Ahmed. A source close to the actor says, “Ahmed is the right choice as he has been the man behind Shahid Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor’s amazing dance skills. John will soon be surprising everyone with his dancing abilities.”
