Filmmaker and choreographer Farah Khan has worked with several actors through her long career, making them dance to her tunes. While some actors like Shah Rukh Khan or Hrithik Roshan may be a treat for any choreographer to work with, such is not always the case with all actors.

According to a report in DNA, Farah recently visited the sets of Shilpa Shetty’s dance reality show, Super Dancer and revealed the two actors who gave her the toughest time. She said Jackie Shroff said he could either dance or lip-sync. Doing both the things is way too much for him.

“Jackie Shroff was the toughest. During my initial days when I was doing this movie, my career was going to end before it started because I got a song where I had to teach dance to Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor and Pooja Bhatt.” He would say, “Dekh Bhidu, ya toh mai lip-sync kar sakta hu ya toh steps, dono aek sath nahi hoga (Look, I can either lip-sync or do steps and can’t do both together).”

Farah also added that she gave up on teaching Salman but he surprised her later when she saw him in Maine Pyaar Kia. “During one of the first screen test of Salman Khan, I was supposed to teach Salman to dance, I actually ran away after 4 hours and cried that nobody can teach you to dance, you don’t know at all. I was shocked when I came to know the makers had selected him in the movie Maine Pyaar Kiya and when I saw the movie I was even more shocked to see how good he was in it,” she said.

Farah shared pictures with Shilpa and Geeta Kapoor from the sets of the show last week. “On set with my favourite 2 women! @theshilpashetty @geeta_kapurofficial make work a breeze #superdancerchapter3 @sonytvofficial,” she captioned the picture.
