Want to explore Riteish's dancing talent: Geeta
By Nanda Das
She has made almost every actor dance to her tunes but choreographer Geeta Kapoor says she is desperately looking for an opportunity to explore Riteish Deshmukh's dancing ability.
Geeta, 37, who is currently a judge on the third season of 'Dance India Dance', said Riteish has proved his mettle as an actor but he is yet to be known as a dancer. "Riteish is no doubt a brilliant actor but he hasn't paid attention to his dancing skills yet. If you minutely observe his expressions then you would know how brilliant he could be in dance. I am desperately looking forward to an opportunity to work with him so that I can bring out the hidden talent in him," said Geeta.
She started her career as an assistant to choreographer Farah Khan and choreographed many films like 'Fiza', 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham', 'Saathiya' and recently 'Tees Maar Khan's 'Sheila Ki Jawani'.
Though it was a tough time for her to choose dance as a career option but Geeta says she is happy that over a period of time the profession has attained its due respectability. "It was tough for me to become a choreographer because it wasn't a career option. It was not a respectable profession. Now, the scenario has changed and people have started to respect this form of art. PTI
