Prince relayed, “Birju Maharaj is a legend. When I was small I had heard a few names in the dance field in India and Birju Ji was one of them. He is one of the pioneers of Indian classical dancing. He is the one who has taken Indian classical to the next level. He has trained and choreographed a lot of Bollywood actors and they are still the best in an industry once trained under him.”
He further expressed his disappointment of not being able to work with him. “I never got a chance to meet him but it’s on my wishlist to meet him and listen to all his experience about how he is so passionate about classical dancing and his experience of classical dance when the dance was not at all a career opportunity.”
“Birju Maharaj’s Jugalbandi choreography in ‘Dil to Pagal Hai’ is my most favorite and I just hope to meet him soon, Prince signed off.
