Shaking a leg like papa!

Sometime in 1982, long after Saturday Night Fever had taken the world by storm, a sprightly young man made an electrifying entry on stage to confidently ask the house-full audience, 'Will you sing with me?'

Clad in a funky 'n' fringed gold costume, his enthusiastic query was met with thundering affirmation.

Mithun Chakraborty -- Bollywood's befitting reply to John Travolta had arrived and how. Sliding in style, shaking with verve and jerking a knee with elan, Mithun's self-styled moves in Disco Dancer, in addition to a winning smile, earned him a lifetime of fan-following.

Twenty six years later, son Mimoh is all set to follow in his disco-dandy dad's footsteps with his debut, Jimmy, releasing on May 9.

Going by the promos, Chakraborty Jr, with his straightened and highlighted mane, has his own power-packed rhythmic pattern and dynamic body language to boast of.

On that note, compares the dancing style of other such father-son star jodis.

Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan

Like most things Amitabh, his song 'n' dance numbers, too, became a rage thanks to a whole lot of camaraderie coupled with clumsy albeit contagious mannerisms and the trademark hand movement. Kaalia's Jahaan teri yeh nazar hai is a rocking sampler of the same.

Initially, there were several attempts on the choreographer's part to forcibly mould Abhishek in his Pa's structure to lacklustre results.

Luckily, AB's baby found his groove in the uber cool beats of hip-hop. His chilled-out footwork in Dus bahane lekar dil (Dus), One love (Rakht), Sabse bada rupaiya (Bluffmaster) and Where's the party tonight? (Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna) are cases in point.

As a combination too, the Bachchan men have fared rather well. The blood-bound chemistry sizzled in chartbusters like Kajra re (Bunty Aur Babli) and Rock and roll soniye (KANK).

Rishi and Ranbir Kapoor

A complete natural, be it acting or dancing. That's Rishi Kapoor in a nutshell. One can never get enough of his spontaneity whether crooning a qawaali (Parda hai parda in Amar Akbar Anthony), serenading ladylove in a park (Ek mein ek tu in Khel Khel Mein), setting the stage on fire with vibrant jigs (Om shanti om in Karz) or making mincemeat of his competition at a concert (in the Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin medley).

Even if only one film old, his soft-spoken son, Ranbir demonstrated his chip-of-the-old-block prowess in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya. Besides showing off some zingy leg work in the title song, he also shook butt in nothing less than a skimpy towel.
Rakesh and Hrithik Roshan

Other than occasional waltzing or breaking into a free-styled romp against a green landscape, Rakesh Roshan wasn't really known for his skills in the dancing department.

Beta Hrithik, however, proved to be on the extreme end of the spectrum. Duggu's awe-inspiring mastery of the form is unanimously deemed the best in the business.

The sheer elasticity of his frame fortified by awe-inspiring vigour makes impossible seem effortless, as evident from Ek pal ka jeena (Kaho Naa...Pyaar Hai) to Break free (Krazzy 4).
Dharmendra and Bobby Deol

Technically speaking, Garam Dharam's free spirited frisk in Main Jat yamla pagla deewana (Pratigya), didn't belong to any particular school of dance. Instead it became popular as the Dharmendra ishtyle. His mantra was simple: enjoy what you do and give the audience a good time.

Too bad, elder son Sunny couldn't get that right, no thanks to his infamous left feet. In contrast, youngest son Bobby scored superbly on that front with some lively shimmy, blending his suave personality against peppery steps to good effect, right from Duniya haseeno ka mela (Gupt) to Kiss of love (Jhoom Barabar Jhoom).
Vinod and Akshaye Khanna

Despite being at the top of his game, the super-dashing Vinod Khanna surprisingly didn't hip-shake to too many songs. Though he certainly had a ball lighting up the dance floor, along with Rakhee, in the dishy Pyaar zindagi hai (Muqqadar Ka Sikander).

In comparison, VK's equally adept son, Akshaye has had numerous occasions to showcase his merit on the same. Though he's no hot-stepper, a la Hrithik, his energetic swinging in Koi kahe (Dil Chahta Hai) or Dekho nashe mein (Race) deserve a thumbs up.
Jeetendra and Tusshar Kapoor

Nothing can beat Jeetendra's animated 'Jumping Jack' approach to dancing. Breaking into acrobatic impulses and flashy antics defined Jeetu's brand of dancing.

Remember Mast baharon ka main aashiq (Farz), Hai re hai neend nahi aaye (Humjoli) or Naino mein sapna (Himmatwala)? Sure, you do.

Unlike his flamboyant daddy, Tusshar is yet to develop his own peculiar style. For now, the spirited lad sticks to dancing to his choreographer's tune to the best of his ability (Pyar re, Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai and Dil ding dong ding, Kucch To Hai).
Sunil and Sanjay Dutt

Playing a dacoit, not dancer, is synonymous with Sunil Dutt. More often than not his songs involved holding a microphone or walking leisurely against lush green mountains or baby-blue lakes in order to woo his heroine.

Though he did indulge in some goofy moves for Padosan (Ek chatur naar, Mere saamne wali khidki mein).

On the other hand, son Sanjay talked his way into a dance competition in his debut itself. That would be Aa dekhein zara from Rocky, for the ignorant.

Like his muscles, his ho-hum dancing capabilities too developed for the better. A high-voltage thump in Tamma tamma (Thanedar) and the tapori-friendly Munnabhai ditties are testaments to the fact.
