Bollywood’s captivating, mind-blowing and brilliant music makes sense when performed by several dance groups. These tunes and rhythms match. The impressive mind-blowing moves of Hritik Roshan are from the choreographers like Ganesh Acharya and Bosco Ceaser. It is not only about the actor or dancer who performs stunning activities; we need to encourage the choreographers behind those moves and steps.

Bollywood is incomplete without songs and dance series. And while we are thrilled to enjoy our favorite actor/dancer’s complex dance moves, there’s a lot of training behind it. The choreographer is one such genre that can make diva-like heroines bend down to their aspirations and proud heroes to shake a leg as they see the relevant body for dance.

The Value Of Choreography Is High

In the Bollywood world, where dance and music are more important than a good storyline in movies, the value of choreography is far greater than any filmmaker, actor, or film technician.

In terms of the number of jobs and film productions, Bollywood is one of the largest film industries. 43% of India’s net boxed revenue comes from the production of Bollywood movies.
