Mrs Amruta Fadnavis, wife of Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis, is shooting a music video with choreographer Ahmed Khan who says he was pleasantly surprised by how down-to-earth Maharashtra’s First Lady was.
“She has no airs, no celebrity trappings. In fact I’ve seen more misplaced pride and nakhras in some actresses than in her. She arrives well on time, learns her lines and steps and shoots the music video with Bachchan Saab in a beautiful red dress. I must say she looks really beautiful,” says Ahmed who was taken aback by the lack of interference from the CM’s office.
“There was not one call from him or his staff. Amruta Fadnavis made it clear she was there for the shoot in her personal and professional capacity and not as someone’s wife. She is a through professional, pursuing a career in the entertainment industry on her own strength and not as the CM’s wife. There is absolutely no interference from him. No calls while she was shooting. Amruta is remarkably focused on her work. She is an aspiring singer and has already sung in a film (Phir Se). Doing a music video seemed like a natural progression,” says Ahmed.
The entire music video was conceptualized by Ahmed. “It’s the story of an aspiring singer who comes to an audition and is asked to dance. Bachchan saab plays the man who owns the dance floor, in more ways than one.”
Apparently when the Big B hit the dance floor with the CM’s wife there was an amazing transformation on the shooting location. “Bachchan Saab was just magic. It was such a pleasure to watch him dancing,” says Ahmed.
