'Jai ho'! Bollywood's big names dance in unison
Picture this - stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and the evergreen beauty Waheeda Rehman dancing to the tunes of A.R. Rahman's "Jai ho" along with the Oscar composer on stage. This picture perfect moment came alive in the capital Saturday.
The celebrities shared the stage at Solutions Summit, a day-long conclave to mark NDTV's 25th anniversary.
Following a 45-minute discussion on the relevance of Indian cinema in the global arena, King Khan took it upon himself to make everyone jive to the tunes of "Jai ho", which featured in Danny Boyle's "Slumdog Millionaire".
After performing a few contemporary steps on the song himself, he asked 77-year-old Waheeda Rehman, a graceful dancer, for a few moves. The highlight of the impromptu jig was when Shah Rukh and Big B danced to some of the latter's signature steps.
The discussion saw the four panelists discuss the importance of their profession, representing the industry on a global domain and changing formats and music in Hindi films.
