Actor learns tap dance and B-boying as part of prep for his next with Prabhudheva
It has been a long wait to his second film for Sooraj Pancholi, who made his Bollywood debut with Salman Khan's production Hero in 2015. But, now, the actor is ready to face the arc lights again — this time, for Prabhudheva's yet-untitled dance drama. Pancholi is aware that matching up to Prabhudheva's dancing skills will not be a cakewalk — as part of his prep for the project, the actor will fly to Chennai to train with him in various dance forms.
Pancholi tells mid-day, "From hip-hop to tap dance and even B-boying, I will be learning many dance forms from Prabhu sir. I want to surrender myself into his hands and learn as much as I can. We all know that he is a genius." The actor, who will be training for almost a fortnight before the film goes on floors in October, feels it's an "honour to learn from the best in the business."
Despite having the cushion of a big banner launch, the youngster could not make a mark with his debut film. Ask him if he feels the pressure to deliver and he says, "I'm not thinking about what happened in the past. It's a new film, and I am going to start afresh and give my 100 per cent to prove my worth. I think the only pressure I have is to not let Prabhu sir down. I hope to live up to his expectations."
