Imran Sardhariya knows to dance and he is making the right moves in Bollywood too, having bagged the choreography of big banner Abbas-Mustan’s romantic thriller, Machine, which also has our very own Ravi Verma doing the stunts for the film. Apparently, Imran’s selection was based on the songs from films Endendigu, which marked his debut as director. “They also loved Myna’s title song, my introduction song of Jackie, Jina Jina from Manikya and a couple of songs in Masterpiece,” Imran says.
The director-choreographer reveals that he has worked according to the needs of the duo, who required the ever changing Bollywood flavour. “I took about 45 days to prepare the songs and the first two were shot for eight days in Bathumi, Georgia. The next two romantic numbers will be shot this month end,” he says.
According to Imran, he has been a big fan of the director duo from the Khiladi days. “I am fascinated by their works and it was a dream come true to work with them,” he says. Abbas is launching his son Mustafa through this film and Kaira Advani is playing the female lead.
While he hopes that the B-Town entry will take his career to a new level, he is also excited to have choreographed the introduction song for Sudeep’s bilingual Kotigobba 2, which will be made as Mundinja Ivan Pudi in Tamil. “This year is going good for me,” he says.
On the directorial front, Imran will be starting his next schedule of Uppi Hulli Khara from tomorrow. “Malashree will be joining the sets for 15 days and we will be completing the major portions with her, except for an action sequence for which we are waiting for Ravi Verma to give dates,” Imran informs.
