Those familiar with Kathak know that the dance form has a technique of ‘chakkars’, a 360 degree spin. The dance master says that in the traditional form, normal Kathak dancers execute pirouetting for as many as 25 times in one go. But Katrina did a whopping 800 swirls in one go and shocked her co-dancers and even her dance master. 

While Katrina was learning Kathak, Veeru Krishnan had Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja as his students and Seeing Katrina do 800 chakkars in one go even they were left stunned,” says Veeru. 

Accoeding to Veeru Krishnan it was Dharmesh who shared his contacts with Katrina and asked her to contact him. She wanted to learn dance and so she called him. She was new to the industry and wanted to get her basics in dance right. And what better than Kathak to do that. Kathak is the base of any dance.
