The director flew down Norway-based choreographer Sudesh Adhana to train Kangana Ranaut for the song Bloody Hell. The actress will be playing the role of a diva in the movie.
“Sudesh is not just a choreographer but also a lecturer in modern dance. We collaborated on an opera in Paris, A Flowering Tree, which I directed and he choreographed. Then, we joined hands for Haider’s ‘Bismil’, which bagged him a National Award. He is an unusual personality. This song is from a film within the film and Kangana worked really hard to get the dance form right”, says Vishal.
