A dance form made popular by renowned Bollywood actresses from the past, the “mujra” is a graceful dance that has been appreciated by the audience through centuries. It has a prominent place in Indian cinema with actresses such as Meena Kumari, Madhubala, Hema Malini, Rekha, Madhuri Dixit and off late Rani Mukherjee and Aishwarya Rai doing great justice to it onscreen. Now it is Kareena Kapoor who embraces this dance style in her upcoming film, “Agent Vinod”.
This is the first time in her career, which spans over a decade, that Kareena is endeavouring to do a Mujra in a film. Although the actress does not have formal training in the classical dance form, Kareena Kapoor has attempted a “Mujra” for “Agent Vinod”, a home production of beau Saif Ali Khan.
The Mujra that is choreographed by Saroj Khan took Kareena almost 22 hours to shoot. She toiled laboriously to rehearse every bit of the performance until she had perfected her moves before she moved on to shoot the dance sequence. Even the bruises on her hands and knees that she received during the practice sessions, did not stop her from learning the steps as they should be.
Looking absolutely stunning in a Manish Malhotra creation with loosely tied hair, Kareena dazzled everyone with her radiant beauty and brilliant red attire that she had donned for the dance number.
We can certainly see that Bebo is not going to leave a single stone unturned, to make this film a success for Saif’s production house. The other actresses had better watch out! The Kapoor girl is set out to give them yet another tough competition!
