After his impressive turn as a kathak dancer in Karan Johar’s 2023 film Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, Tota Roy Choudhury is all set to show off some freestyle street dance moves in an upcoming project.

“Last year it was Kathak. This year it's Freestyle Street. Subho Noboborsho. Details soon,” wrote the 47-year-old actor on Instagram on the occasion of Bengali New Year on Sunday, along with a teaser video.

The video has Tota, in black blazer and pants, grooving to peppy music at a function. The venue is lit up with golden fairy lights, and Tota is accompanied by background dancers in ethnic wear.

Gangubai Kathiawadi actor Shantanu Maheshwari dropped fire emojis in the comments section, while TV actress Rupanjana Mitra commented with the clapping hands emoji. Kshitee Jog, who also appeared in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, wrote, “Wooohooooo👏👏👏.”

Tota played Alia Bhatt’s on-screen father in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, which also starred Ranveer Singh. The Chokher Bali actor stunned everyone with his graceful moves as a kathak dancer in the film, especially with the Dola Re sequence where Ranveer Singh matched steps with him. He took kathak classes in Kolkata and Mumbai to come up with an authentic portrayal of his character, dance teacher Chondon Chatterjee, in Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani.

On OTT, Tota was recently seen in the two Hoichoi series — Jaha Bolibo Shotto Bolibo, co-starring Mimi Chakraborty; and Nikhoj, alongside Swastika Mukherjee, Saoli Chattopadhyay and Koneenica Banerjee.
