Ace choreographer Ahmed Khan is amidst a flurry of activity at the moment. Besides producing his next film, Paathshaala starring Shahid Kapoor and Ayesha Takia, he’s also part of MTV’s i.Superstar, where he’s training die hard fans to perform like their favourite screen idols. Ahmed recreated the title song of Welcome and seems to have enjoyed the experience. “It felt kind of weird doing the same thing with two different people,” he says.
However, his most exciting assignment at the moment seems to be Ghajini, where he is making superstar Aamir Khan dance to A R Rahman’s tunes. Ahmed reveals that the film’s music is a little ‘hatke’ even by Rahman standards. He says, the film’s music is very different….a bit of Rhythm & Blues. You’ll know what I mean when the music comes out. There’s a particular song in Ghajini where Aamir has spotted six different hair styles. I’m sure it’s going to create a buzz.”
Apart from choreography, Ahmed was recently in news for choosing buddy Shahid over Hrithik. Ask him about it and he explains, “Both actors are very dear to me. I was all set to do the item song in Krazzy 4, but Hrithik got injured twice and the shooting got delayed. So I had to opt out. I requested Ganesh Acharya instead.”
