I will never direct dance based film: Shiamak Davar

Ace choreographer Shiamak Davar says he is not certain if he will ever step into direction but if he does, it will be anything but a dance-based film.

Shiamak said he, however, wants to direct a movie, which will have a message of hope.

“I don’t think I will ever direct unless there is something, a topic I really want to do, very strong…. (has) a message of hope. That can be a story but I haven’t come across anything like it and I am definitely not going to direct a dance movie,” Shiamak told PTI.

“I would rather do something I am good at. I will obviously put dance in the movie but it shouldn’t be the focus because my focus has been theatre. I love theatre so I would put that in the film, more than just dance,” he added.

The 54-year-old choreographer is undoubtedly one of the most revered choreographers in Bollywood and from Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan to current generation actors Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan, he has made all stars dance to his tunes.

When asked about the general perception about Salman being a difficult actor to choreograph as he creates his own steps, Shiamak laughed and said, “It’s a wrong perception that he is difficult to choreograph. I think the only thing, which he doesn’t like if one does too much, is technical. That is something I do hence he runs away, saying, ‘Oh no! Why Shiamak?’

“But I have never had any problem with him ever.”
