Dance has always been an integral part of Indian cinema and Bollywood has seen some incredible dancers in every generation. The golden years saw Madhubala, Meena Kumari, and Helen, followed by Hema Malini, Parveen Babi, and Rekha in the retro days. And then, in the modern era, actors like Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Govinda, Aishwarya Rai, Hrithik Roshan, among many others, were recognized as the best dancers the industry could ever see.
Millennial Bollywood films see a whole new generation of dancers who are proving their dancing prowess at every opportunity.
Here are some of them -
A trained dancer, Deepika has displayed her excellence in dancing many times. However, her performances in films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Ramleela, Bajirao Mastani, and Padmaavat, particularly remain iconic.
Katrina has also displayed her talent as a dancer in her initial years, but it was not until her performances in Race (2008) that she was recognized as an excellent dancer when she swept the audience off their feet with her elegant moves. Following that, she gave more such brilliant performances in Dhoom 3, Agneepath, and Tees Maar Khan, among many films that followed.
Trained by dance maestro Shiamak Davar, Shahid has been a dancer even before he became an actor and remains one of the best the industry has had. He can burn the dance floor with his indomitable energy, the finesse of moves, and endless charm. His performances in films like Jab We Met, Badmaash Company, Kaminey, and Shandaar, remain particularly memorable.
Shraddha is also a trained dancer and dancing comes most naturally to her. She has an intrinsic element of elegance and charm in her moves, coupled with her affable persona. Her performances in films like Baaghi, ABCD 2, and Stree remain noteworthy.
A natural dancer, Varun is one of the best ones in present-day Bollywood. In fact, in his every film, we see him in at least one dance performance. Varun never fails to thrill the audience with his high-octane moves, easy and smooth body language, and his dedicated attitude. His performances in Student Of The Year, ABCD 2, and Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya remain benchmarks.
A natural dancer, Tiger Shroff is known for his sharp and agile moves. He is particularly known for breaking, locking, and popping, and adds his own touch to every performance.
These actors have rather enviable dance skills! Whom do you like the best?
