I disagree, I actually feel the background dancers never get their due. Almost all of them are amazing dancers but still the focus is always on the heroine or hero while if you look at it.. the ones in the background are dancing so much better.

Yeah! A lot of background dancers are really good!

In this video, the girl to Kareena's left is so pretty! And she's a great dancer too!


And I think its the same girl again in this video at Katrina's right. 


And who can forget Shaimak's dancers? I love his dancers! Remember Shahid in Kahin Aag Lage? He's obviously very talented. 

What I hate is when they have random white dancers that are purely there because they're white girls and they make them wear skimpy clothes. That's gross. But apart from that, I think background dancers are rather talented people who haven't gotten a chance because they're not star kids.

the quality of background dancers have really taken a nose dive. and i blame these producers/directors/choreogrpahers running after western dancers.

they just don't fit in. if you look at bhansali movies, one thing that stands out are the dances, choreography and with that comes the background dancers.
bhansali hardly users  western background dancers. its good to see him stay with his roots. i am not saying that we should not at all use western dancers, but making them just pop from nowhere, on a indian tune, especially classical, just looks plain ridiculous at times.

i actually enjoy the backup dancers. especially in those old classic songs/movies. they not only keep up with the rhythm, but also gracefully blend in with the lead dancer.

these days..i agree with you, its a torture to sit thru some songs. 

anyways..good topic.Thumbs Up

The background dancers may have improved now. But the ones in the 90s and pre-90s sucked!

i find no reason why the presence of background dancers should make u embarrassed ...
the tone of ya post sounds rude...calling anyone ugly is bad.and besides their dance is in fact much better than the hero/heroine...

OK, guys. What PuffinHyperpercity said wasn't "completely" wrong. You've got to admit that the whole dance-in-sync with the the background dancers is a completely odd concept. I do agree that Bollywood is an epitome of masala and what not, but you guys also need to understand that they [the ugly ones, that is] distract the audience from the main dancer and create a sense of turn off.

Now, on the other hand, yes, I do agree that today's b/g dancers have improved. For example, in the following videos, certain b/g dancers have actually performed better than the lead dancer. Please take a look. It's left to viewer discretion.

Pathetic b/g dancers. The directors could have used a replacement.
