A few months ago, two sisters choreographed a fusion dance sequence that combined Bharatnatyam and hip hop which became a viral rage. Priyanka and Poonam Shah who have been dancing for a while now, have a solid growing fanbase from the time their video went viral. The sisters have now been wooed by Tollywood to choreograph an introduction piece for Aishwarya Arjun for the movie Kadhalin Pon Veedhiyil, directed by her father Arjun.

The US-based dancing duo met Aishwarya in Mumbai to discuss the movie. Aishwarya apparently saw the sisters on YouTube and wanted to get them to do an introduction bit, a one minute dance piece which Aishwarya decided the sisters will be excellent choreographers for. She loved the Bharatnatyam and hip hop fusion which the sisters are known for is what Aishwarya was swooned by too.

The sisters have been on the dance show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa but this is their first stint at the movies. Aishwarya who rehearsed for three days straight, 14 hours each day, says she is already a freestyle dancer and has some training in Kathak but for the intro piece the actress had to train with the duo and according it to her it was hectic but a lot of fun too.
