August 11, 2012, (Sawfnews.com) – Madhuri Dixit and veteran choreographer Saroj Khan will team up to set the dance floor ablaze in Soumik Sen’s
Madhuri and Saroj first teamed up for Madhuri’s Ek Do Teen number in Tezaab (1988) and followed up with many additional hit numbers through the nineties. The two last worked together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas (2002).
Anubhav Sinha, the producer of Gulab Gang, suggested Saroj to Sen, who didn’t need to think twice before accepting Sinha’s choice.
Sinha recalls his personal experience of watching Saroj direct Madhuri.
“I remember Sarojji showing the steps to Madhuri, who would perform them with such ease and grace as if she had done them before,” Sinha told TOI.
Sen says Madhuri plays a deglam role in the film, but still the audience can expect some spectacular choreography.
“Every Madhuri dance number has always set a new benchmark, that’s our intention too,” says Sen.
Madhuri, 45, considers Saroj her mentor and believes Saroj is a class apart.
“Madhuri feels that Sarojji is immaculate with details and ensures that the facial expressions are in perfect sync with the mood of the song and the character,” Sen added.
The womancentric film features total of 51 female characters and no male lead.
Gulab Gang filming will start in October. It is scheduled to release on March 8, International Women’s Day, 2013.
