Choreographer-singer Ganesh Hegde feels obliged as superstar Shah Rukh Khan, amidst his gruelling schedule, has readily agreed to launch his forthcoming album Lets Party on Monday.
"He was eager to launch my album. I changed my date three times as I was not ready. He was also very busy with RA.One and Don 2 but he still obliged and said whatever date you finally fix I would make time for you," Hegde told IANS.
He regards SRK as his mentor, said Hegde. "I have been doing lots of work with SRK since the last 15 years. He was very instrumental in helping me with my first album G. He is like a mentor and elder brother to me," said Hegde, who choreographed film Don and Temptations Reloaded (2008) tour of SRK.
Hegde has choreographed for films like Agni Sakshi (1996), Khamoshi: The Musical (1996), Fiza (2000), the song Mitwa from Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India (2001) and Koi... Mil Gaya (2003).
Hegde's Lets Party is an endeavour to revive Indian pop music. Actor Hrithik Roshan and actresses Priyanka Chopra and Bipasha Basu feature in different hip-hop numbers of the album.
