Director Ken Ghosh's new film 'Chance pe dance' is still filming but the first promo has already been leaked online.
The film, which was earlier titled 'Yahoo' stars the recently metamorphosed Shahid Kapoor and Genelia Dsouza. Not much is known about the film, but the official tagline says that 'Chance pe dance' is the story of a guy who has to make use of the one important chance he gets to prove his mettle.
Chance pe Dance will reportedly showcase the dancing skills of Shahid and Genelia, and rumours suggest that the film is a remake of Hollywood's teenage dance flick 'Step Up' which starred Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan. Step up was the story of the disadvantaged Tyler Gage (Channing Tatum) and the privileged modern dancer Nora Clark (Jenna Dewan), who find themselves paired up in a showcase that determines both of their futures. Realizing that they only have one chance, they finally work together.
It remains to be seen how director Ken Ghosh turns the plotline into a desi one for 'Chance pe Dance'. The film will cash in on Shahid Kapoor's recent rise to fame ala Kaminey. Genelia, who is already an established actress in the south became a household name last year when her 'Jaane Tu ya Jaane na' hit theaters. Reportedly, 'Chance pe dance' earlier starred Jiah Khan in the lead role, however she was replaced with Genelia after producers weren't too happy with her acting skills. But is this move justifiable? Jiah Khan is an accomplished dancer skilled in Salsa, Lambada, Samba and Kathak; and Genelia's dancing skills are questionable.
'Chance pe dance' will reteam Ken Ghosh and Shahid Kapoor for the third time, after the mega successful 'Ishq Vishq' and box office bomb 'Fida'.
