Dance is an inseparable part of Indian cinema, especially Bollywood. One cannot imagine Bollywood without superstars lip-syncing and dancing to foot-tapping tunes.

Most of our actors are trained for a dance sequence before the shoot; some even go through training for more than a month to get that hook step correctly for you.
