Andrea has estabished herself as a singer and actor but dancing makes her a little nervous, she admitted. Especially when she has to match steps with Kamal Haasan who is an exceptional dancer. Her role in Viswaroopam demanded that she learn Kathak and perfectionist that he is, Kamal brought in acclaimed Kathak dancer, Birju Maharaj to train them.
It was an honor to work with Birju Maharaj, Andrea said. Kamal Haasan was an eager learner and picked up every move quickly. Andrea had a slightly more difficult time of it. Fortunately. she had taken Kathak lessons while in college and she managed somehow to keep up with the masters of dance!
