Shahid KapoorIf it's a Shahid Kapoor film, there must be some heavy duty dancing. Or so it seems, going by the way the music in his father's directorial debut Mausam has been moulded to accommodate Shahid's dancing shoes.

According to a source very close to the project, the film's aesthetically-inclined director Pankaj Kapoor had initially planned an exclusive heavily melody-based music score based only ragas.

In fact, Pritam Chakraborty who's doing the music score in
Mausam has just recorded a raga-based love melody in the voice of Rashid Khan.

Says Pritam, "It was meant to be only a small music piece. But when Pankaj-ji heard the tune he wanted it as a full-fledged song."

Pritam admits the music in
Mausam would be heavily melodious in the tradition of the great love stories down the ages fromBobby to Love Story to Ek Duje Ke Liye to Saawariya.

But now just days after Pritam recorded the raga-based number comes the news that a specially-designed dance track will be put together for

A source close to the project who doesn't want to be named says, "There was closed-door meeting between the producers, the director and Shahid Kapoor. It was unanimously decided that there would be a very unique song-and-dance. It was felt that
Mausam was too expensive a project to make it seem even slightly experimental in flavour."

Says the film's producer Sheetal Talwar, "We don't want to disappoint Shahid's target audience, the young fans. So yes, Shahid will dance after all."

Shahid's buddy Ahmed Khan is now busy trying to accommodate the dance into his crammed diary. He has no choice. Shahid has to dance.
