10 Bollywood Actors We didnt knew were Trained Dancers


Most of the Bollywood movies are about dancing and singing, so it would be good if actors have song dancing skills to show during the shooting schedule.

While dance steps are choreographed and the special team takes care of dance in the films, it is still easy for filmmakers if they are blessed with the dancing cast in their movies.
