Katrina Kaif makes a sexy belly dancer in Sheila Ki Jawani, and some of the credit goes to choreographer Veronica D'Souza.
Tees Maar Khan is Veronica's first film but her belly dancing classes in Mumbai have seen quite a few celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan's wife Gauri, Salman Khan's sister Arpita, Rakhi Sawant and Riya Sen.
She gives Sonil Dedhia a list of actresses who would look great as belly dancers, starting of course, with Katrina.
I have never seen so much dedication in any of my students.
Katrina is very dedicated. People have a wrong notion that she has a very stiff body. What I really like about her is that she's very patient. Even if something is boring and takes time to learn, she will not crib. She is very graceful and elegant, like a flower slowly opening up. She has one of the best bodies required for a belly dancer.

Another beautiful lady, Priyanka is so graceful! She can dance amazingly well. She has a very good figure. She performed very well in Desi Girl.According to me, she is one of the leading actresses who will do justice to belly dancing.

Masumeh has been my student for a long time. She has a very good technique to pick up things very fast. Whenever I have seen her dance, she easily captures the essence of sensuality, and that is very important for a belly dance. She did a cameo in Heyy Baby, and performed really well.

You cannot compare Helen with anyone. Even today I think she can give any actress a run for their money.
No one can beat her where the essence of the dance and expressions are concerned. The Mehbooba song in Sholay remains one of the biggest hits.
Madhuri Dixit tops the list! She brings together the qualities of a goddess and feminism, and performs so elegantly.
Madhuri has shades of a great dancer. It's treat to watch her dance. My favourite song of hers is Choli ke Peeche.
