Ranbir Kapoor is a trained jazz and ballet dancer. His skills have often come to light in songs like Bachna Ae Haseeno, Ghagra, or Dilliwali Girlfriend, and he has proven himself each time with no scope for complaint.
7. Katrina Kaif
When she first stepped into the industry, her language and acting issues had raised a number of eyebrows, and the unpolished dancing skills didn’t help her case at all. However, she worked on her flaws, and in no time emerged as one of the most reliable dancers in Bollywood. She shocked people with her moves in Kamli and Suraiyya, in which she moved like “liquid electricity”, her flexibility made people awestruck and she can be considered one of the best Indian dancers now.

Queen Madhuri cannot be compared to anybody else. She matched Prabhu Deva’s steps in Kay Sera Sera, and led Ranbir Kapoor in Ghagra. She danced off with Karishma Kapoor in Dil Toh Pagal Hai, and entertained the audience with “Ek Do Teen.” She is invincible, and her skills are second to none as she proved when she made her comeback in Aaja Nachle.
