Arshad Warsi wishes to direct a musical play or musical thriller
This will come as a surprise to many that before he became an actor, Arshad Warsi was a dancer and a choreographer. He won several dance competitions both in India and abroad.
Later, he also started his own dance studio, Awesome. “Yes, I use to. I had started when I would do choreography for plays and all. During that time, people would love my form of dancing. So, a lot of people started asking if I could teach them. And I was like, ‘let’s try, so I started a school that ran for some time but soon, films happened, so I couldn’t continue it,” Arshad told HT Cafe.
Arshad recalls how Shiamak Davar was having his dance school at that time. “I couldn’t continue as I didn’t have the kind of infrastructure that Shiamak had. And I have great respect for Shiamak because he is so involved in it. Also, I couldn’t have left it on somebody else. You have to be there,” Arshad further told the daily.
Warsi readily admits that he had a “completely different perspective” at that time. “I had to do much more in life to get what I wanted,” he says. When the daily asked him if he had any plans to open a dance school again or re-launch Awesome, the actor told them, “I don’t know. Probably, I won’t open a dance school but I have a great desire to direct a musical play or maybe a musical thriller.”
