Kapur added: “Shiamak always surprises you as an audience. He is just so incredible the way he choreographs dance. We all have grown up watching his dance. He is such a wonderful artist. He revolutionized Western dancing in India.”

“Yeh Ballet”, directed by the writer of “Salaam Bombay”, Sooni Taraporevala, tells the story of two boys from low-income families who discover ballet, and through it they find a way to escape their challenging circumstances.

“Our project ‘Yeh Ballet’ will stream on Netflix directly. Shiamak has actually choreographed a lot of dance numbers in it. There will be all kinds of dance forms in the film. There is ballet of course but then contemporary, jazz, hip-hop and other dance forms are also a part of the film. So, I am looking forward to the release of that film,” said Kapur.
