Cameron has faced criticism in the UK and India after suggesting that Indian dance is not an appropriate form of exercise for school pupils during allocated sport periods, reports IBN Live.
"I see it with my own children... because you know, the two hours that is laid down is often met through sort of Indian dancing classes. Now, I've got nothing against Indian dancing classes but that's not really sport," Cameron said in an interview for ITV1's Daybreak.
Supporters of Bollywood dance as a form of exercise argue that it provides participants with a vigorous cardio-vascular workout.
Justifying plans to scrap current two-hour time slots for PE in schools, Cameron added: "The trouble we have had with targets up to now, which was two hours a week, is that a lot of schools were meeting that by doing things like Indian dance or whatever, that you and I probably wouldn't think of as sport, so there's a danger of thinking all you need is money and a target.
"If that was the solution we would have solved the problem by now."
Bollywood dance has taken off in recent years following the emergence of Bollywood into the mainstream and chart success of tracks including AR Rahman's 'Jai Ho' from Slumdog Millionaire.
