Prabhudheva feels that dancing in Bollywood has changed over the years.

Actor Shammi Kapoor was perhaps one of the finest dancers in Bollywood during the 80s. Though his unique dancing moves inspired many actors to imitate his style, yet no one could replicate it.

Remembering him on his birth anniversary on Friday, choreographer turned actor-director, Prabhudheva gets nostalgic and calls Shammi his favourite actor-dancer in Bollywood.

“I love Shammi Kapoor. He had the best dancing style. And his energy was just awesome. The happiness on his face while dancing, his style and his steps — everything was amazing. When you see him on screen, you can’t take your eyes off and can’t see anyone else in that frame,” says Prabhudheva adding, “I also love Govinda and Shahid Kapoor and the way they use their expressions while dancing. It’s quite impressive.”

Prabhudheva says even the fresh breed of choreographers are as good as veterans.

Prabhudheva might be reticent by nature but he lets his dancing do the talking. The 43-year-old actor says, “Each generation brings their own style of dancing to the table. It was good back then and it’s good even today.”
