Hrithik is very humble: Choreographer
Ganesh Hegde is all praise for the star's attitude towards work and people.

Mumbai: Ganesh Hegde is one lucky man in tinseltown! What he has achieved through his new music video is a coup of sort in Bollywood. He recently roped in three Bollywood divas to appear alongside him in the video and is also seen shaking a leg with Hrithik Roshan, who is known in the industry to have the coolest dance moves up his sleeve. Ater a brief hiatus, choreographer Hegde is back with his album titled 'Let's Party', which he says is his personal attempt to revive the dying genre of pop music in the country.

Getting four leading celebrities to feature in his video was certainly no easy task, and Hegde says that it was sheer pre- planning that made the impossible possible. "When you have to bring four celebrities like Bipasha (Basu), Katrina (Kaif), Priyanka (Chopra) and Hrithik (Roshan) together, it obviously requires a lot of planning. I was shooting with them all on different dates. And the stars themselves were slightly nervous."

The choreographer says that the three actresses featuring in his music video epitomise the classic characteristics of today's modern woman. According to him, while qualities like confidence and being in control of any situation comes naturally to Priyanka, Bipasha reflects soft sensuousness. Hegde feels that Katrina has a natural spark in her that makes her stand out in any social gathering and that is exactly the setting of the song that she has been cast in.

While speaking about Hrithik, it is not just the actor's technical expertise at his dance that Hegde wants to talk about. Apparently, the actor's commitment towards work and sheer respect for fellow human beings are what have impressed him the most. Narrating an incident that took place during his shoot with Hrithik, the choreographer says, "The most important thing that I have learnt from Hrithik is that no matter how big you become, you can always extend a helping hand towards someone who needs it."

While it has been reported in the media that none of the stars charged a fee for appearing in Hegde's video, the choreographer admits to IBNLive that Hrithik in fact did not even accept money for his own entourage including his make-up and hair person. Hegde is all praise for the actor as he says, "The day I was shooting with Hrithik, he had a family function in the evening. In spite of getting calls all evening regarding the same, Hrithik actually stayed back till 3 am for the shoot and missed going to his function. It just shows his respect towards work and that how humble he is as a human being."

And apparently, it is not just Hrithik who has impressed Hegde. The choreographer confesses to IBNLive that he has made Shah Rukh Khan change his dates three times in order to be able to inaugurate his music video that is slated to take place today. He laughs as he says, "Shah Rukh Khan is involved with my music in a big way. There was so much of planning required behind making this video and executing it that I made Shah Rukh change his dates three times. His shooting schedule is so busy but it shows that the launch of my music video is also very important for him."
