When it comes to Bollywood, it’s impossible to image its films without dance numbers, from party songs to item numbers, these are often more popular than the movie itself. So, even though you don’t remember watching Hrithik Roshan’s Agneepath, you’ve certainly watched Katrina Kaif’s killer moves in ‘Chikni Chameli’ a zillion times. You know exactly whom to thank — it’s choreographer for the amazing moves, and in this case, it’s Ganesh Acharya.
Not just this, think about any Govinda songs and his quirky dancing moves, it’s Acharya all the way who has choreographed almost all of his songs. A big name in Bollywood, he is a self-made man who has mesmerised and supplied the best party moves for generations.
But no matter how brilliant his talent is, Acharya – who is also an actor and director – was always body-shammed, even though weight was never a hurdle for this creative genius.
However, tired of all fat-shaming, the talented choreographer recently underwent an amazing transformation and has reportedly lost a whopping 85kg! He has chronicled the journey on his Instagram profile, and it’s inspiring. The National Award winning choreographer spoke to Hindustan Times recently about this change and said, “Karna hi tha! Ek soch thi ki I just have to do this. Logon ne Ganesh Acharya ko mota hi dekha hai (I had to do this! I had thought that I just have to do this. People have only seen the fat Ganesh Acharya), that’s why I wanted to change the image. I have lost almost 85kg now.”
