New Delhi, Dec 5: Actor Aamir Khan, who has impressed with his tap dancing number in "Dhoom 3", learned the skill from acclaimed Australian choreographer Dein Perry.
Aamir, who plays a negative role in the movie, flew all the way to Australia to learn the grungy tap dance, which is high on energy and more difficult than the classic tap dance.
The actor spent some with Perry, who also choreographed for movie "Happy Feet Two" and the opening act of Sydney 2000 Olympics.
"Aamir had visited Dein Perry's academy in Australia to learn the grungy tap dance. After the training, the dance team came to India to shoot the song," said the spokesperson for the film.
"Dhoom 3", one of big budget multistarrer Hindi movies of the year, will come out Dec 20 and Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra and Katrina Kaif will be seen adding twist and turn to the action drama.
Will Vidyut Jammwal be new Khiladi in 'Khiladi 2'?
Producer Ratan Jain, who is keen to start "Khiladi 2" shooting, liked Vidyut Jammwal's work in "Bullett Raja", but says he hasn't finalised anyone yet for the title role in the sequel to Akshay Kumar 1992 starrer hit movie.
"I have seen Vidyut's work in 'Bullett Raja'. He is good. We have not zeroed down upon anyone for the film yet. We just don't need an action hero, but he should also be fine with music, humour and everything," said Jain.
"I have two to three actors in my mind but its too early to discuss about it. He must fit the bill so I can't say whether he will be part of it or not but lets see," he added.
Produced by Ratan's brother Ganesh Jain and directed by Abbas-Mustan, "Khiladi" success marked a turning point in Akshay's career.
Jain said there will be two important characters in the sequel.
"We will have two characters in the film and we are in search of the right ones," he said.
Sonu Nigam no less than Kishoreda: Pankaj Udhas
Praising Sonu Nigam's versatility, ghazal singer Pankaj Udhas compared him with a legend like Kishore Kumar.
