Shahid Kapoor who plays the lead in Ken Ghosh’s upcoming film Yahoo cannot dance. But the actor’s fans needn’t worry as it won’t be long before Shahid is back on the dance floor. However, this is a matter of worry for Ken Ghosh, who has no option but to postpone the release of his film by six months. Shahid is nursing a neck injury and is yet to heal completely.
Had Shahid not suffered the injury, Ken would have completed the film by next month and Yahoo would have hit the theatres in November or December 2008. Ken admits, “We are now looking to release Yahoo in May 2009. And it’s okay, because my film is perfect for a release during vacation time.”
Meanwhile, Shahid has given Ken’s dates to Vishal Bharadwaj and is currently busy shooting for Vishal’s Kaminay (co-starring Priyanka Chopra and Amol Gupte) in Pune. “Since Vishal’s film, Kaminay is also for UTV Motion Pictures, it’s no problem. Meanwhile, I have shot other portions with Shahid that don’t require him to shake a leg,” Ken adds.
Talking about Shahid’s injury, Ken says, “Shahid’s doctors have advised him to go slow on dancing for a few months. He is undergoing physiotherapy now. He should be fine in a month or two.”
Shahid Kapoor is known for his dancing skills, which he most recently displayed in his film Kismat Konnection. Although not much has been revealed about Yahoo, Ken wanted a new dance style, as song and dances are a major part in Yahoo. Ken has even hired American choreographer James Martin Kudelka, who has choreographed the likes of Britney Spears and Justin Kimberley, to teach Shahid new moves.
