Anil Kapoor Threw A Fit To Get His Own Ek Do Teen



Anil Kapoor Threw A Fit To Get His Own Ek Do Teen 10

This was when N Chandra’s soon-to-release-blockbuster  was being shot.When  Anil Kapoor saw how Saroj Khan’s choreography and Madhuri Dixit’s dancing had  turned  out in the  number Ek do teen, he decided to so something  about it  or the film threatened to slip  completely out of his hands.
