Indian classical dance seems like an all woman's world and so a male classical dancer doesn't get the same respect. Saqib Saleem’s next seems to focus on this aspect of the society. The 29-year-old actor has been roped in for a short film AAMAD where he plays the character of a Kathak dancer.

Though learning Kathak and playing a Kathak dancer was very challenging but the actor took it in his own stride and put together a genuine effort to learn the art by a professional Kathak guru and actress Ishita Sharma. The actor showed immense grace learning the art.

He shared a video clip in which we can see him dancing along with his guru:

AAMAD is a story of a father who is a Kathak dancer and how his son is embarrassed of his father's art. The plot explores how they build their relation over a period of time and overcome their personal apprehensions and start a new friendship.

The film will be released by Terribly Tiny Talkies on the special occasion of Father’s Day and is directed by Neeraj Udhwani who has previously worked with Saqib for MERE DAD KI MARUTI.

When asked Saqib about this film, he said, “I know Neeraj for a while now as he wrote MERE DAD KI MARUTI and we meet often to discuss ideas. He shared the idea of AAMAD with me and asked me what I thought .When I read it I instantly fell in love with the story and I told him that he shouldn't look for anyone else as I want to do it. It's such a simple yet complex film as it speaks about the unsaid things in a father-son relationship.”
