The film tells a true story of a young, self-taught dancer in Iran, Afshin Ghaffarian, who risked his life for his dream to become a dancer despite a nationwide dancing ban. Freida plays Elaheh, who joins Afshin and others to form an underground dance company.

The 41-year-old 'Krrish 3' star said he was impressed with Freida's dancing skills in the movie. "Has anyone out there seen 'DesertDancer'? Pure passion ignited. Most incredible film I have seen. Such amazing actors. Bravo to the entire team," Hrithik posted on Twitter.

"And how amazing is Frieda Pinto. Never seen anyone dance like that. Wanted to wish her but she doesn't pick up my phone! Maybe she'll get this," he said.

 

'Desert Dancer' also stars Reece Ritchie, Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Cullen, Marama Corlett and Simon Kassianides.
