Pankaj Kapoor designs special dance track for Shahid
Shahid Kapoor is undoubtedly one of the best dancers in Bollywood and his aesthetically-inclined dad Pankaj Kapoor is reportedly putting together a specially-designed dance track in Mausam.india Updated: Jun 01, 2010 19:40 IST
"We don't want to disappoint Shahid's target audience, the young fans. So yes, Shahid will dance after all," said the film's producer Sheetal Talwar.
A source added: "There was closed-door meeting between the producers, the director and Shahid. 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."
Shahid's buddy Ahmed Khan is busy trying to accommodate the dance into his crammed diary.
According to a source very close to the project, Pankaj had initially planned an exclusive heavily melody-based music score based only on ragas for his directorial debut.
In fact, Pritam Chakraborty, who is doing the music score in Mausam, has just recorded a raga-based love melody in the voice of Rashid Khan.
"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," he said.
He admits the music in Mausam would be heavily melodious in the tradition of the great love stories down the ages from Bobby to Love Story to Ek Duuje Ke Liye to Saawariya.
