Ahmad Khan said that while they may not be good dancers, they know how to perform to songs based on their personas.

Ahmad Khan is a prolific choreographer who has worked with several Bollywood biggies like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan. However, in a recent chat, Ahmad said that these big stars are not good dancers. Instead, because of their personas, they know what their audience wants from them and will do steps in their own styles.

In a conversation with O2 India, Ahmed said that Salman’s “persona is larger than whatever he does.” Ahmed spoke about choreographing Salman in Jumme Ki Raat from Kick. He said, “I gave him a step where he had to move his collar. You can’t do it with another actor because even if he does it well, the audience will question why is he doing it? Because of Salman’s persona, it has an impact on the audience.”

Speaking about choreographing Shah Rukh Khan, Ahmad said, “Shah Rukh is very charming. You can make him jump… I made him dress up as a clown in one song. Like in ‘Chand Taare’ (Yes Boss), he throws a bucket of popcorn in the air but pearls fall down. This is Shah Rukh’s charm… rags to riches,” he said. About Aamir Khan, Ahmad said that the superstar can play a ‘tapori’ in Rangeela and a multi-millionaire in Ghajini with equal ease.

Ahmed added, “These guys are not great dancers but they know what to do, how to perform in a particular music, with particular lyrics, and what their audience will like. So they come with their inputs in terms of persona. They will never say what they want to do. Whatever you make them do, they will do it in their own style and it will work.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Salman Khan recently announced that his next film will be Sikander. He was previously working on Karan Johar’s Bull which got shelved. Salman will also share the screen with Shah Rukh soon in Tiger vs Pathaan. Meanwhile, Shah Rukh, who was last seen in Dunki, is currently busy with his next, titled King. The film will reportedly feature Shah Rukh Khan as a parallel lead with his daughter Suhana Khan. The film will mark Suhana’s full-fledged debut on the big screen.

As for Aamir, he is currently busy with the production of Lahore 1947. The film will feature Sunny Deol and Preity Zinta as the leads. Aamir Khan will next be seen in Sitaare Zameen Par with Genelia D’Souza.
