Jacqueline Fernandez tries a different style of ballet and dons the director’s hat in ROY
Jacqueline Fernandez has become a favourite with choreographers and directors to dance in her films. With her next film, ROY, the actress has tried a completely different style of contemporary dance, a ballet on sand for the song ‘Boond Boond’. Director Vikramjit Singh wanted a sequence in the song that is artistic, sensual and passionate. When he briefed choreographer Ahmed Khan, Ahmed instantly knew what he wanted to capture.
Jacqueline will be the first Hindi actress to try this form of dancing in romantic thriller ROY. Speaking about it, Jacqueline says, “Ahmed gave me a couple of videos to watch to understand the body language and refer to before the shoot. He is one of the finest choreographers, who loves experimenting and is passionate about his work.”
Jacqueline, who loves dancing, suggested some moves to Ahmed who loved them and incorporated them on shoot. Jacqueline adds, “Ahmed gave a completely different, fresh touch to the kind of ballet we have always seen on screen. I too had ideas and together we put a piece together. The final scene that you see on screen is sensuous and passionate.”
