Tutor for Dippy and Ranveer
Daksha Sheth to train the duo in Kathak and Kalaripayattu in Bajirao Mastani.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is leaving no stone unturned to ensure his dream project, the Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone period romance, Bajirao Mastani, is made on an epic scale with special attention to detail.
Mirror has learnt that the perfectionist filmmaker has approached Daksha Sheth to train Ranveer and Deepika in Kalaripayattu, an ancient martial arts form that is also one of the oldest fighting systems in existence.
Revealed a source close to the development, “The film has several war sequences and Ranveer’s character will be seen in highrisk combats. Bhansali has already finalised locations for these action scenes in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Gujarat. He is waiting for his cast to return from their respective schedules so they can begin their training with Daksha.”
Deepika will be seen in several elaborate dance numbers. She will learn Kathak under Sheth’s tutelage while both will take extensive training in Kalaripayattu from her.
“Ranveer needs to master the art of striking, kicking, grappling and weaponry so that when he engages in a fight, he can balance himself perfectly and perform the scenes with elan,” the source added.
Over the past 45 years, Sheth has carved a niche for herself in the arena of dance, amalgamating traditional forms like Kathak, Chhau, Kalaripayattu and Mallakhamb with contemporary techniques.
When contacted, Sheth confirmed the story, saying “Yes, I’ve been approached by Sanjay Bhansali to train Raveer and Deepika for Bajirao Mastani. I will have more clarity on this offer in a week’s time. It’s an unusual experience for me to work on a film. I’ve done so few of them. I’m really enthusiastic as along with teaching, I’ll also get to learn something new.”
Sheth had previously trained her daughter, Isha Shravani, for Subhash Ghai’s Vivek Oberoistarrer Kisna.
