The man who taught the world to dance
June 26, 2009

The death of Michael Jackson, The King of Pop has sent waves of disbelief and dismay across the Indian film industry. Reactions are flowing in thick and fast from everywhere. Everyone who loves dance has been inspired or delighted by Micheal Jackson at some point of time or the other. Michael Jackson was nothing short of a star of stars, the one whose charisma is unmatched. World music will never be the same again.

The ‘Indian Micheal Jackson’ Prabhu Deva said that he was shocked when he heard the news. He recalled the time when he had Michael Jackson in person when he had come to Mumbai, a meeting that was considered the confluence of two of the world’s best dancers ever.

In the last few years of his life, Michael Jackson had been dogged by controversies and issues. That is perhaps why Jackie Shroff said that his son had felt that ‘it was right that he breathed his last’. The death of Michael Jackson at this time is even more painful because it robbed him of the opportunity to have one last hurrah on stage in front of billions of his fans waiting eagerly to see him perform. He was set to go on a series of concerts later this year to mark a comeback after quite a few years out of the limelight. But that was never to be.

Micheal Jackson will always be remembered as one of the world’s greatest musical legends, perhaps the first truly global musical superstar. He was the man who taught the world to dance. May he rest in peace.
