National-award winning choreographer Bosco Martis is excited to turn director with yet-untitled movie, which will be a musical.
The Mumbai-born choreographer, who along with his dance partner Caesar Gonsalves, has worked on 200 songs and about 75 films, said he was nurturing the idea from a very long time.
“I am making my directorial debut by the end of this year. It will be a musical. I am in talks with leading actors but can’t divulge much as I am very sceptical about my film. I have kept my fingers crossed. Four years ago, I had an opportunity to direct but things did not materialise,” Bosco said.
With the film, Bosco is following in the footsteps of other choreographers including Remo D’Souza, Farah Khan and Prabhudheva.
“It’s a refreshing change to see so many choreographers taking the front seat. They have presented some beautiful choreographed numbers with their films. They have made Bollywood dance global now.”
Besides Bollywood, Bosco is enjoying an equally successful career down South.
“South has energetic dance moves. They will do something which needs high energy. It’s almost like an action and dance package. Everyone is almost a good dancer there. We (choreopgrapher) only make it little stylised,” he said.
But the choreographer feels Bachchan is one of the most enthusiastic dancers still at the age of 73.
“I worked with Amit ji in ‘Party Toh Banti Hai’ from ‘Bhootnath Returns’. He is on his toes all the time. In the scorching heat, he will reherse for a dance sequence for a long time without any umbrella. He is so humble and his hunger to learn at this age is inspiring for us,” he said.
Bosco will be seen on the judge’s chair again with the Indian version of American dance reality show “So You Think You Can Dance”. He will be accompanied by Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit and fellow choreographer Terrance Lewis.
“With this dance show, we are trying to show that we are at par with international standards. Contestants on the show are of next level. They are equally brilliant in both street and stage form of dance. We all were getting goosebumps while we were taking their auditions.”
