Beyonce’s choreographer Frank Gatson Jr works with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s next ‘Fanney Khan’ will see her alongside Anil Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao. The film has been in the news for an interesting storyline and its characters, and song sequences from the film should be no less interesting, as a lavish dance sequence is being choreographed by Frank Garson Jr for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Gatson has been Beyonce’s choreographer for fifteen years, and has just completed working with Bachchan.

Debutante director of ‘Fanney Khan’ Atul Manjrekar, flew down to Dubai to watch Gatson work, afterwhich he was signed. Gatson told Mirror, “I was to visit India from Dubai in April but couldn’t despite having an entire day to spare as there were visa and paperwork issues. So, Atul flew to Dubai for three hours to watch me work and hang out. It was clear that the film was important to him and I decided to give it my all. That was a challenge because music is supposed to tell you what to do but this song’s beats were essentially Indian, and I wanted to stay true to the culture. However, it’s turned out to be an international number.”

On working with Bachchan, Gatson added, “You cannot give Ash dance steps that look too young. She is not 19, she’s a woman and a mother. I had to make it likeable. She was so happy with the way the sequence shaped up, she hugged me and introduced me to her family.”

‘Fanney Khan’ is slated to for a 3rd August release.
