Shahid Kapoor’s know-it-all attitude during the making of Chance Pe Dance has soured his relationship with director Ken Ghosh, who was also the actor’s close friend

Shahid Kapoor

Six years ago Shahid Kapoor and director Ken Ghosh were buddies when they first worked together in Ishq Vishk. Their friendship was going strong even when Ken made his second film with Shahid, Fida (2004). Much has changed today and the camaraderie between the two has ended.

A source from the sets of the forthcoming Shahid starrer Chance Pe Dance, directed by Ken, said, “Everything was hunky dory when Chance Pe Dance (earlier titled Yahoo) went on the floors. The film took a long time to complete as the shooting was stalled when Jiah Khan was replaced by Genelia D’Souza. Meanwhile, as Shahid starred in a few films and grew in popularity, his attitude with the people he had known over the years took a turn for the worse. Many of his friends and colleagues were shocked at his changed behaviour. Ken too was shocked but he somehow took it in his stride and completed the film.”

Commenting on the bone of contention between Shahid and Ken, the source said, “Shahid was working with prominent directors like Imtiaz Ali (Jab We Met), Aziz Mirza (Kismat Connection), Yash Raj Films (Dil Bole Hadippa), Vishal Bhardwaj (Kaminey) while Chance Pe Dance was being made. Gradually, he started believing that he knew more than Ken because of which he started interfering a lot in the making of Ken’s film. Consequently, the two had their share of differences, which ultimately snowballed into serious issues.”

Throwing more light on the soured relationship between Shahid and Ken, the source added, “Actually, quite a few film industrywallahs are aware of the differences between Shahid and Ken in the recent past. It’s just that nobody talks about it and Shahid and Ken too are not very vocal about their issues.”

When we asked Ken about his changed equation with Shahid, he said, “When Ishq Vishk released, Shahid was 22. Today, he is 28. There is bound to be a change.”

We sent a text message to Shahid but he was unavailable for comment.
