Young­sters more keen on Bol­ly­wood dance: Hema

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor-politi­cian Hema Malini (above), who is also a Bharat­natyam dancer, said young­sters to­day are more keen on Bol­ly­wood style danc­ing. “Time has changed a lot. To­day, when ev­ery­thing is mov­ing so fast, our cul­ture and art is get­ting af­fected,” Hema said at an event.

“Even our young­sters want to keep pace with the chang­ing world. They want quick out­put. Western cul­ture has been in­flu­enced by Bol­ly­wood,” she added.

The ac­tor rued that “only a few are in­ter­ested in pur­su­ing clas­si­cal dance forms. The rest are into Bol­ly­wood”. “It is very dif­fi­cult to sus­tain the in­ter­est in clas­si­cal dance. That is why it’s nec­es­sary to pre­serve clas­si­cal dance forms,” she said.
