Every Bollywood movie gives you some groovy tunes and the hook steps to follow. And it is the responsibility of the choreographers to make the actors dance in a way, express in a way so that the song looks good, becomes eye-catching and rules the trending chart. And over the years, we have followed many Bollywood choreographers' set choreography and maybe even have danced to them. But how much do we know about their personal life?
We are generally hooked on our favourite celebrity's life, but the people who make these celebrities dance so beautifully, we rarely intend to know about them. Here's a list of Bollywood choreographers from Prabhu Deva to Ganesh Acharya and their lesser-known partners. Check it out:
Amazing dancer, choreographer and actor, Prabhu Deva is a Pan-Indian celebrity now. Even though the choreographer's career has been successful, his personal life has always been turbulent. In 1995, he had tied the knot with a classical dancer, Ramlath. She had come from a Muslim family and had later changed to Hinduism and renamed herself Latha. Reportedly, they had a love marriage.
The couple had three sons, but in 2008, their eldest son had succumbed to death due to cancer. And in 2009, there were rumours that Prabhu Deva was having an affair with South Indian actress Nayanthara. Then in 2011, Prabhu Deva and his wife, Latha had parted ways and had got divorced.
Ahmed Khan is a popular Bollywood choreographer who has even tried his hands at acting and is best known for his role in Mr. India. However, the actor, director, and choreographer had tied the knot with the model-turned-producer, Shaira Khan in 1998.
The couple together even owns a production house, Paperdoll Entertainment, which backed films like Pathshaala and Ek Paheli Leela. They have two sons, Azaan Khan and Subhaan Khan.
Bollywood's one of the most renowned choreographer, Ganesh Acharya has big film names in his hat. However, in his personal life, he had tied the knot with Vidhi Acharya in 2000. The duo has a talented daughter, Soundarya Acharya, who is also a dancer herself. In 2015, Vidhi Acharya had become a producer by backing up a film, Hey Bro.
Salman Yusuff Khan is mostly known for his win in a dance reality show. He has been a choreographer in showbiz for quite some time. He had even later participated in a few dance reality shows as a choreographer. He had even featured in Remo D'souza's films, ABCD and Street Dancer. The dancer-choreographer is happily married to Faiza Haramein. The couple has a son, Hamdan and a daughter, Zahraa.
Bollywood's one of the leading choreographers-turned-director, Remo D'souza is married to the love of his life, Lizelle D'souza. The madly-in-love couple is quite romantic, and their social media posts are proof of the same. The couple has two sons, Gabriel and Dhruv. In a dance reality show, Remo had revealed that they had got married at a very young and had struggled for years. However, she has always been his pillar of strength for him. He had said:
"We got married quite young while I was still trying to find a foothold in the industry and we have had our share of struggle but it was Lizelle’s unflinching trust and support which motivated me throughout and we overcame all struggles and odds together!"
Remember the song, Main Deewana Hoon and the groovy moves? Yes, that was Ganesh Hegde. The talented dancer and choreographer had tied the knot with his ladylove, Sunayna in 2011. She is a stylist by profession and has been styling Ganesh for all of his public appearances. They have two sons, Giaan and Hrio.
