Bollywood ace choreographer Ganesh Acharya has choreographed Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif, Aamir Khan, Varun Dhawan, to name a few in the past. He has also started his own dance school named, GADA (Ganesh Acharya Dance Academy) and the dancer is in the news yet again. Earlier, it was reported that Acharya was accused of not paying the members of the Cine Dancer's Association (CDA) according to the standard rate fixed by the body. Though he said that the accusations are all false and has explained his side of the story, we got to hear another piece of a shocking story and this time coming from another Bollywood ace choreographer Saroj Khan.
According to Mumbai Mirror reports, CDA representative and veteran choreographer Saroj Khan claims Acharya formed the new association, “using his position to manipulate dancers and malign the old association (CDA).” She was quoted by the portal, saying, “CDA was established in 1955 and has given dancers like Remo D’Souza and Ahmed Khan to the industry. Even Ganesh and his father were a part of it. Starting a new organisation by boycotting your roots is disloyalty. Ganesh has been badmouthing CDA all over the industry and poaching its dancers by promising more money. They are dividing the dance community Ganesh has his own people take the posts in the new association."

Acharya goes to add that CDA was shut down six months ago, he said, "But three months ago, Zahid Shaikh, Deric Biswas, Al Fahim Surani and Ravi Kanwar reopened it without showing any court orders to do so and filled up the posts without elections. Now, they are pressuring dancers to join the association again.”
