Mumbai, May 26: Bollywood star Katrina Kaif says rekha and Madhuri Dixit are far better dancers than her. In an interview to the Mumbai newspaper DNA, Katrina said dances in Bollywood are getting grander and more appealing than ever.
“In fact, the songs and dances tend to have a more universal appeal today, given the amount of money and ideas that go into picturising them”, feels Katrina.
“I think the amount of money, time and effort that we spend on a single song is slowly showing its results. These days Bollywood songs have got a universal appeal and these days everyone seems to enjoy them. I think it's a great trend, because our songs are also looking bigger and better,” she says.
On being asked about how she rates herself as a dancer, Katrina roots for Rekha and Madhuri Dixit instead.
“I think that they are great dancers and they have consistently performed over the years. I think it's tough to follow the kind of career path that they have created for themselves,” she shares.
Admitting that she too enjoys dancing, she says, “I like to dance and I enjoy it too, but I think that they (Madhuri and Rekha) are far better than me,” says Kaif.
Katrina Kaif who has been a judge for an online dance competition for Etihaad Airways pooh-poohs the concept of only Indians being crazy about Bollywood song and dance routine.
“It was amazing to see so many talented people around the world share their passion for Bollywood dance. The appeal of a good Bollywood dance number now permeates across cultures and nationality,” says Katrina, pointing out that it was a French resident who emerged victorious.
Katrina Kaif, however clarifies that she is not doing any item number after Sheila Ki Jawani as of now.
“I'm definitely not doing one for Delhi Belly. Of course, I would love to do an item number for a good film and anything for Aamir, but as of now, I am not doing any number for the film,” she clarifies.
