Shaimak Devar, the well known Bollywood choreographer, rose to prominence in 1997 with Yash Chopra’s Dil Toh Pagal Hai¸ which included an innovative dance form with western influences. It propelled him to the forefront. In a recent interview, Shaimak stated that Shah Rukh Khan persuaded him to work on the film.

He said that Yash Chopra asked him to work on Dil Toh Pagal Hai, and Shah Rukh Khan was the one who persuaded him to sign the film. He claimed that SRK’S wife Gauri Khan, used to take dance classes from him and the actor would pick her up. During that time, SRK told him, “There is a movie coming out, and he wants me to do it.” Additionally, Shaimak was asked to have a meal with SRK. Shiaman said that SRK asked him to perform in Dil To Pagal Hai. “He persuaded me by saying they wanted my style of dance,” said Shiamak.

Shaimak continued, “Frankly speaking, if Shah Rukh hadn’t persuaded me, I am confident I would not have done Dil To Pagal Hai either. Because my dance style was quite different. It was western, but Yash (Chopra) uncle believed in me, and SRK encouraged me further. So, I'm overjoyed that I did the movie.”

Shaimak has collaborated with some of the biggest personalities in the industry, including Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Dhoom 2 and Anushka Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.

Shaimak Davar recently choreographed Ishaan Khatter and Wamiqa Gabbi in Vishal Bhradwaj's short musical Fursat. The film centred on the topic of time travel.
