Deepika Padukone: I want to do a romance with Salman Khan
Deepika Padukone has said that she wants to star in a romance with Salman Khan.
The actor is currently shooting an update of Romeo and Juliet with Ranveer Singh.
She told the Hindustan Times: Show me one person who doesn’t want to work with Salman Khan! And now, let me tell you, I may have debuted with Shah Rukh Khan, but Salman was the first person to offer me a film.
“He spotted me way before Om Shanti Om, when I did my first Liril and Close Up ads. I had just hit the modelling circuit then. So the proposal is pending. I want to work in a romantic film with him, a nice love story.
“I have always shown my fondness for him. He comes across as a very romantic person and that will reflect on-screen.”
Padukone also denied that she is romantically involved with her current co-star Singh.
She added: “Going out with someone for coffee or dinner is a normal thing among youngsters. I don’t understand why such a fuss is being made about it. If I want to go out on a hundred dinner and coffee dates, I will go and no one has the right to question it. I am going about my life as a normal 26-year-old.”
The star replaced Kareena Kapoor in Ram Leela, reportedly after director Sanjay Leela Bhansali decided against having a married actor in the lead role.
Singh has described Padukone as the “perfect” Juliet.
Dance is a performing art form consisting of purposefully selected sequences of human movement. This movement has aesthetic and symbolic value, and is acknowledged as dance by performers and observers within a particular culture.Dance can be categorized and described by its choreography, by its repertoire of movements, or by its historical period or place of origin.
An important distinction is to be drawn between the contexts of theatrical and participatory dance, although these two categories are not always completely separate; both may have special functions, whether social, ceremonial, competitive, erotic, martial, or sacred/liturgical. Other forms of human movement are sometimes said to have a dance-like quality, including martial arts, gymnastics, cheerleading, figure skating, synchronised swimming, marching bands, and many other forms of athletics.
Archeological evidence for early dance includes 9,000-year-old paintings in India at the Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka, and Egyptian tomb paintings depicting dancing figures, dated c. 3300 BC. It has been proposed that before the invention of written languages, dance was an important part of the oral and performance methods of passing stories down from one generation to the next. The use of dance in ecstatic trance states and healing rituals (as observed today in many contemporary “primitive” cultures, from the Brazilian rainforest to the Kalahari Desert) is thought to have been another early factor in the social development of dance.
References to dance can be found in very early recorded history; Greek dance (horos) is referred to by Plato, Aristotle, Plutarch and Lucian. The Bible and Talmud refer to many events related to dance, and contain over 30 different dance terms. In Chinese pottery as early as the Neolithic period, groups of people are depicted dancing in a line holding hands, and the earliest Chinese word for “dance” is found written in the oracle bones. Dance is further described in the Lüshi Chunqiu. Primitive dance in ancient China was associated with sorcery and shamanic rituals.
