Ken Ghosh Admits Arguments With Shahid Kapoor
Director Ken Ghosh has admitted that he had arguments with actor Shahid Kapoor on movie sets of ‘Chance Pe Dance’.Ken said that it had to do with the actor's saturated schedules.
Ghosh said, “For the first time in his career, Shahid was doing three films at the same time - 'Kaminey', 'Dil Bole Hadippa' and my film 'Chance Pe Dance'. Naturally, there was a conflict of interest.”
"I'd ask for three days. He would have only one day to spare. I'd naturally be upset. Then understandably, Shahid wanted time off. He couldn't be seen on my set straight after shooting for one of the other two films. This naturally led to heated arguments."
"For me as a director, it was okay to come on the sets without sleep. But Shahid had to catch up on his resting time. Or the dark circles would have shown on camera." "Priyanka Chopra had to be hospitalised because of overwork and exhaustion. I didn't want Shahid to go through the same experience," he said.
Ghosh says arguments and fights during the making of "Chance Pe Dance" were for the betterment of the movie. "But they were all for the betterment of the film. See when Shahid did his first film 'Ishq Vishk' with me, he only had that film on hand and was able to give me his full attention," he said.
The effort has been worth it for both Shahid and Ghosh."Shahid's dancing in 'Chance Pe Dance' is the film's mainstay. But his performance is not just about dancing. Some of the things he has done in the dramatic scenes took me by surprise. Shahid has brought subtle expressions into scenes which I didn't catch while shooting. Only during editing I realised what he had done."
Ghosh, who thinks Shahid has all the more changed, says "Isn't change inevitable? We all evolve with time. Shahid is no exception."The movie, ‘Chance Pe Dance’, which has Genelia D'Souza in the female lead, is scheduled for release on Jan 15.
