Actors in our industry are multi-talented and here we have one of the most beautiful and talented Sanjeeda Shaikh speaking to Telly Buzz about what she would have been, if not an actor.
Well, the way she moves and grooves when the music is on, it is pretty much obvious that she would have undoubtedly been a dancer if not an actor...
Lets hear it from Sanjeeda herself...
"There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good" - Edwin Denby
If not an actor I would have definitely been a dancer.
Since my childhood I have had the flair of dancing and I was not really trained in classical dance form. But I was into semi classical dance, and have learnt Bharatnatyam as well. In order to make myself familiar with the Mudras, I had taken lessons.
Apparently during my school days I was not into dancing much, in fact there was no much encouragement given to extracurricular activities in my school. I was more into singing, but still I would only say that I am a decent singer.
My favourite dance style is Indian Contemporary, and Zara Nach Ke Dikha and Nach Baliye have given me a great platform to showcase my dancing skills. According to me Saroj Khan is still the best choreographer in the country and since I have worked with Vaibhavi in Zara Nach Ke Dikha, she is also my favorite. I believe, she knows what suits me well and is aware what I am good at.
I have been into several performances and I feel that the ones I did in Nach Baliye and Zara Nach Ke Dikha were very demanding both physically and mentally. I have learnt a lot from those shows. The performance that I did with Mukti and the solo performance of Ore Piya are in the list of my favorites and the Table dance that I did with Aamir is also a memorable one.
I would love to open a dance school in future, that is when I feel the need to settle. But at the moment I am really busy with the shoot and tight schedules.
We really hope you fulfill your dream, and it is indeed a pleasure to see you on tapping your feet on stage..
