"Learn Lip-sync the Aamir way!"
At the shoot of Zee TV's popular dance reality show Lux DID Doubles, when ace choreographer-turned- DID judge Rajeev Surti was trying to get his contestants to lip-sync correctly to the lyrics of the song they were dancing to, he inspired them with an interesting example of the "Perfectionist Khan"!
Rajeev recalled that about 2 years ago, when he had coached Aamir Khan's poster boy nephew Imran Khan on his moves and expressions for his introductory song 'Kabhi Kabhi Aditi' for his debut film 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na', apparently Aamir Mamu had Rajeev put his chocolate boy bhaanja through almost 12 hours of actually singing the song out aloud, so that he gets used to the lyrics and is able to effortlessly serenade Genelia once the camera is rolling.
Rajeev said, "Initially, we all wondered if Imran would be up for so many hours of singing but when we saw the results improving with each passing hour of practice, we realised what Aamir wanted to achieve. When Imran finally sang Kabhi Kabhi Aditi, his first take was okayed simply because he was so natural and easy. My contestants on DID Doubles are a talented group of performers and I want to see them do a similar exercise for each of the songs they choose to perform to week after week!" With a tough task master like Rajeev working on extracting superlative performances from them, Lux DID Doubles is bound to see some extraoridnary dance acts in the coming days.
