In a major revelation, the best dancer of Bollywood, Katrina Kaif, revealed that the biggest hichki of her life was dancing! If you’ve seen her set the screen on fire with Kamli, Chikni Chameli or Sheila Ki Jawani, you would never doubt that Katrina isn’t a born dancer! The makers of Rani Mukerji’s Hichki are promoting the film uniquely by asking prominent personalities to share their untold weaknesses and how they eventually converted them into massive strengths. Katrina let us in on her story of how she overcame her biggest Hichki.
Katrina reveals, “For me, my biggest Hichki in the beginning of my career was dancing. While shooting for a film with superstar Venkatesh in Telegu, Raju Sundaram was choreographing me. He looked quite irritated with my dancing but didn’t say anything. Later, while working on Wanted, I overheard him telling Salman Khan on set, that as dancer, Katrina Kaif is Zero! I was shocked.”
Determined to tackle her Hichki and not let it come in the way of achieving her dreams of stardom, Kaif said, “After my first Telegu film, I trained with Kathak Guru, Veeru Krishnan from 7 am to 1 PM almost every day. And choreographers Bosco-Ceaser gave me confidence to perform to my best in the film Race. I think this is what a good teacher does – gives a person confidence that he/she can do it. That’s how I overcame my challenge of being a ‘zero’ dancer.”
Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra and produced by Maneesh Sharma, Hichki is set to touch the hearts of audiences when it releases on March 23.
