Bollywood background dancers get pay hike

Bollywood is known for its fabulous song and dance routines. And background dancers are the ones who give Indian cinema its unique identity. Now, Cine Dancers have finally got a wage hike which was long overdue. They will now be paid a minimum of Rs 4500 per day. Speaking about it, Zahid of Cine Dancers Association confirmed saying that the dancers had not got any increment in the last five years. He says, “I am happy to tell you that most choreographers of the film industry including Bosco and Remo D’Souza are happy for us.”

It is learnt that the wage hike has started with Pati Patni Aur Woh with the last song from  the film which was shot with Kartik Aaryan recently. Choreographer Bosco when contacted said, “It is fantastic news and my team has told me about this increase in wages. Whatever has happened is really good.”

The Federation of Western India Cine Employees and Cine Dancers Association have disaffiliated from each other but the FWICE is happy for the workers. General Secretary of FWICE, B N Tiwari said, “Whether they work with us or don’t work with us but they should get their hike which was overdue. I would request the producers to make sure the dancers get a minimum of Rs 4500 for 12 hours of shoot and for those who pay less than Rs 4500 FWICE will issue a non-cooperation against them.”

Remo D’Souza has been busy shooting for Street Dancers. The choreographer’s wife  Lizelle said, “We have been fighting for this for the last 18 years we are happy that at last it is done.”

Unfortunately, there is a flip side to this. Dancers  allege that there are some choreographers who sign package deals with producers and don’t pay them the right amount that is due to them. Ravi of Dancer Association said, “There are a few choreographers exploiting dancers who are needy but we will not allow this to happen anymore.” Stay tuned to CineBlitz for more updates and news.

Shalini Pandey

Shalini Pandey had mesmerised everyone with her infectious charm and acting prowess in the Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy and we can confirm that her big Bollywood launch will be as Ranveer Singh’s heroine in the much-anticipated Jayeshbhai Jordaar releasing next year. Shalini debuts with this Yash Raj Films production whose storyline celebrates women empowerment. The talented young actress will also be managed by YRF going forward.

YRF has always discovered supremely talented outsiders like Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Bhumi Pednekar, etc who have become stars in their own right. So, one can imagine that Shalini will definitely be an actress to watch out for given YRF’s trust in backing her as the leading lady opposite a powerhouse performer like Ranveer.

The producer of Jayeshbhai Jordaar, Maneesh Sharma, who has cast Shalini in the film speaks highly of this 25-year old actress. “Our script and the vision of the film demanded a fresh face for the leading lady’s part. Shalini’s audition was so spontaneous and nuanced that we knew immediately that she was the right person for the part. She is an assured actor with a refreshing presence, and we have real confidence in backing her talent. She’s really going to catch your attention in Jayeshbhai Jordaar!” says Maneesh.

Shalini started her career as a theatre actor in Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh) before working in the Telugu industry. Despite not knowing Telugu fluently, Shalini prepared herself thoroughly to do her own dubbing in Arjun Reddy and was widely appreciated for her performance. She has also worked in the cult classic Mahanati.

About her big ticket Bollywood debut Shalini says, “Being given the opportunity to be signed on as a talent and also being cast under the Yash Raj Films banner is truly any artist’s dream. I’ve been blessed with this huge chance to show my mettle in the Hindi film industry and I’m incredibly thankful for it. I’m also very fortunate to be sharing screen space with Ranveer Singh who is one of the biggest superstars of our generation and also one of the most versatile actors too. I’m thrilled about being paired opposite to him and this inspires me to prepare myself thoroughly to deliver the best.”
