West Indies cricketer Dwayne Bravo whose Gangnam style is loved by all is now set to groove in a Tamil film, Ula. CS talks to a few choreographers to know which cricketer they would love to work with.

Terence Lewis

Mahendra Singh Dhoni
It would be great to work with someone who is the pride of the nation. I love his work ethic and seeing Dhoni dance would be a treat for his fans. I am sure he will sizzle on the dance floor.

Kapil Dev
I have grown up watching him. Kapil Paaji comes across as a serious person and it would be nice to see him break free and do a jig.

Remo D’Souza

Sachin Tendulkar
I would like to choreograph Sachin because I simply love him. Also, I have never seen him dance. It would be really interesting to see him shake a leg. I would like to give him a pucca desi number.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni
Again, I have not seen him dancing. Cricketers like Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh are known to be good with their moves. It will be a pleasant surprise to see a non-dancer like him dance on a proper Bollywood number.

Ahmed Khan

Chris Gayle
Chris is a natural dancer. He is such a big man but he has so much grace in him. I love his Calypso dance, however I would like to give him a number that does justice to his personality.

Harbhajan Singh
I feel Bhajji has a great sense of comic timing. I would love to give him a total dhamaal number, which will exploit the fun side of his character. He has great energy as well.


Virat Kohli
I have worked with him in an ad film. He has this certain spark and understanding of rhythm. Plus, he’s the next big thing of Indian cricket. I would love to explore his youthfulness in a dance item.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni
Wherever he goes, Mahi is the cynosure of all eyes. His actions create awareness and I want to work on that aspect. He’s captain cool and has his own style quotient. We would love to bring in these aspects in a number. 


Yuvraj Singh
We have seen him dancing at parties and he is a natural dancer. He lets himself go and has a certain rhythm in his body movements. He would be an interesting cricketer to choreograph.

Harbhajan Singh
He’s a natural bhangra dancer. We have also seen him do stunts on the field, which are entertaining to say the least. He’s cool and an interesting choice for a dance choreography.
