Nobody knew the dancer in Yami Gautam existed, as the actress had never previously got a chance to shake her hips onscreen before. However, with the energetic number ‘Nachange Saari Raat’ which is a revamp version of the 2006 hit song with the same name by singer Stereo Nation, Yami has proved that she has got the grooves in her. In an exclusive conversation with ANI, the ‘Sanam Re’ actress credits Madhuri Dixit Nene for bringing out the dancer in her.
“I have always danced in my school life, but as none of my roles required me to dance, people do not know that side of me. When it comes to dancing, I love Madhuri Dixit. I have grown up watching her dance. She is so graceful. I just find her extremely amazing,” said the 27-year-old. On being asked how she prepped up for the dance sequence of the song, the ‘Vicky Donor’ actor said, “I was really nervous because Pulkit
(Samrat) is an amazing dancer. The song is so peppy that the step had to be energetic too. I practiced each and every step really well so that we look compatible onscreen. I don’t want to be called a bad dancer, anyway.”
She added, “I never saw Pulkit practicing steps. He would come on sets, watch the choreographer dancing and start shooting right away, while I took hours to learn.” When asked what she thinks about matching some steps with Hrithik Roshan in her next film
‘Kaabil’, Yami said that the thought itself is making her feel extremely excited.
