Daisy ex­cited to tour with Sal­man

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

Ac­tor Daisy Shah (be­low), who was once a back­ground dancer, is all set to tour with su­per­star Sal­man Khan later this month. She says the best part about live shows is the back­stage drama, which the au­di­ence doesn’t get to know.

She, along with Sal­man and other celebri­ties, will be tour­ing Malaysia, Hong Kong, Auck­land (New Zealand), Syd­ney and Mel­bourne (Aus­tralia) from April 14 to April 23.

About the tour, Daisy who has known Sal­man for a long time says: “Sal­man is do­ing a live tour after 12 years... That it­self is quite in­ter­est­ing. He has been like a rock in my life and is a great men­tor and an awe­some friend to have.”

She adds, “The best part about live shows is the mess up that hap­pens back­stage, which au­di­ences don’t get to know. We tend to not make stupid faces when we miss a step. It’s only us and the dancers who know about it. Once the show ends, we gen­er­ally tend to sit back, dis­cuss and have a good laugh about it.”

“This is the first time I am do­ing a tour as a lead­ing lady and live shows are al­ways dif­fer­ent from films. The big­gest ad­van­tage of do­ing a film is the pos­si­bil­ity of a re­take, but when it comes to live shows it’s just like plays, there are no re­takes,” says the ac­tor who has worked with Sal­man in Jai Ho (2014). “I have done many live shows as an as­sis­tant chore­og­ra­pher, I have never done a show with Sal­man be­fore. And now, I’m tour­ing with him as one of his lead­ing ac­tresses,” Daisy adds.
