Ican’t call him the best dancer, I would rather say he’s a beast of a dancer,” said Justin Timberlake’s choreographer Marty Kudelka. These words weren’t in praise of the American pop idol, they were meant for our desi Justin – Shahid Kapoor. 
    Remember, JT gave you the news that Marty, who has made artistes like Janet Jackson, N’SYNC, Pink, Jennifer Lopez, OTown, Christina Milian, Mandy Moore and Donnell Jones dance to his tune, was going to make Shahid do the same for Ken Ghosh’s new film Yahoo! At Filmistan where Hollywood’s most sought after choreographer was at work, Shahid passed with flying colours. 
    But getting Marty to choreograph Shahid wasn’t easy. He first looked at one of Shahid’s songs before he agreed to come to Mumbai. Said a source, “He was very curious to work with Shahid after he watched that song.” Marty gave Shahid some tricky dance moves to try and the actor impressed him by picking them up in a jiffy. “Marty is pleased that Shahid left no stone unturned to get Justin’s super flexible moves,” added the source. Marty said, “Shahid is a fantastic dancer. He’s a fast learner. He’s incredibly focused and enthusiastic about his work. Given a chance to work in Bollywood again, I would love to work with Shahid once more.”
