Priyamani reveals she was placed behind Shah Rukh Khan in Jawan’s Zinda Banda song, actor got her ahead: ‘He told Atlee she is my dance teacher…’
Actor Priyamani has revealed how the team of Jawan shot for the film’s massive “Zinda Banda” song, where superstar Shah Rukh Khan ensured she was next to him while dancing. The duo had previously worked in Chennai Express for another chartbuster track, “One Two Three Four Get On The Dance Floor”. In an interview with Connect FM Canada, Priyamani said when the actors were rehearsing for the first set of choreography that was given to them, she was placed behind Shah Rukh. When the superstar arrived on set, he “categorically” looked around to see where Priyamani was and noticed that she was behind him. Priyamani said Shah Rukh Khan told the choreographer Shobi Master and director Atlee that she should be next to him, as she has been his “dance teacher” since Chennai Express and in case he forgets his steps, he will follow her moves.
