The latest Bollywood movie which is all set for its release this November is ‘Chance Pe Dance’ which is directed by Shahid’s good friend Ken Ghosh who had earlier introduced the actor in Ishq Vishk. The movie will release on November 6, 2009.
In the flick Shahid plays Sameer a talented and passionate young struggling actor, positive and brimming with energy. Sameer juggles various jobs while working towards getting his big break in the industry. During his struggle he meets Tina (Genelia D’souza) who is a choreographer. Just when Sameer is promised his big break, he is left without a house as he cannot pay his rent. Not one to lose heart Sam starts living in his rickety old car and starts teaching dance in a school to young kids who have never won any dance competition. He hates kids and the kids hate dancing.
Check out the exclusive Chance Pe Dance Trailer below:
The struggle in life continues as the director who was to launch Sameer now decides to choose his hero through a talent hunt. Sam is shattered but he diverts his focus towards the kids. Getting over his initial dislike of children, Sam not only emotionally bonds with them, but also helps them win a prestigious inter-school dance competition and gets their confidence back – aided by the spirited and beautiful Tina.
Tina urges Sameer to enter the reality hunt, with the love and support from Tina and the kids, Sameer emerges a winner and eventually becomes what he was destined to be, a superstar.Yahoo was the working title of the movie but they eventually chose the catchy Chance Pe Dance. Star was also considered in the initial stages but a movie called Superstar starring Kunal Khemu released in early 2007. The makers thought that if a movie with Kunal Khemu, who is hardly a star, can be called Superstar, how can a movie with Shahid Kapoor, who is a sizeable star with a huge fan following, be called only Star?
They were talks about Katrina Kaif being Shahid’s co-star but the makers eventually zeroed in on Jiah Khan. She shot for the film but was asked to leave halfway through. Reportedly, she got over-friendly with Shahid Kapoor and was not doing her job well. She was replaced by girl-next-door-of-the-moment, Genelia D’Souza who shot her scenes in a whirlwind schedule. Commenting on the movie, Shahid Kapur said, “I have a very positive feeling about Genelia and me. We make a good pair on screen. Contrary to rumours, I have not interfered in the casting of the film. I love dancing and Justin Timberlake’s choreographer, Marty has choreographed the dance sequences in the movie.”
