#Quote
1[observation, 2013] When I started off twenty years ago, Bollywood dance did not have a structure. The first movie I choreographed went on to win a national award and introduced jazz technique to Bollywood. It was a first for Indian cinema to have properly choreographed pieces with dancers who were trained and had fit bodies. This movie - 'Dil Toh Pagal Hai' - is considered a turning point for dance in Bollywood movies.
2The SDIPA motto: "Have feet, will dance!"
3About Yash Chopra : "I'm really touched that he thought about me. Everybody says, "You're good," but no one ever offered me anything."
