Yesteryear actor Hema Malini says she can move and groove every which way — be it for Indian classical or western forms of dance.

A trained Bharatnatyam dancer, she believes she can groove in western style if she is ever required to. "I have never even tried doing western dance. I don't even think I will be able to do it.

But whoever learns classical dance, can do any kind of dance. We just have to have the mindset that 'yes, we have to do it'. So, I will also do it," the 64-year-old said here Thursday at her show Stress Shakti.

The 64-year-old says her mother always wanted her to become a classical dancer.

"My mother was not a dancer, but wanted her daughter to learn dance and I am doing it till today. I can boldly say that I am following whatever she told me," said the actress, whose two daughters — Esha and Ahana — too are trained dancers.
