Popular model and actress Vidya Malvade is currently basking high in the success of her blockbuster film, SRK's Chak De India, wherein she essays the role of the team captain. Vidya has never been into any sport her whole life and she says her dancing skills helped her learn the very tricky and strenuous hockey moves! The lady has learnt Kathak as well as other dance forms like Salsa, Fox Trot, Rumba and TAP dancing and is a certified yoga instructor too! Wow looks like Vidya is quite the dance expert!!!
Says Vidya, 'I have been practicing dance since last 9 years and the hand eye coordination movements which are so vital in hockey came easily to me thanks to my dance training!. One has to be really careful in hockey, with such heavy uniforms, hard hitting puts and sticks. We had such a rigorous training and it is really a difficult sport to master and play… hats off to the real players who work so hard yet get such little recognition in our country!'
Well, looks like Vidya is 'dancing' her way to success!!
