Why did Ahmed Khan choose Ranbir over Shahid?April 8th, 2012 - 9:25 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai April 8 (IANS) Choreographer Ahmed Khan, a close friend of both Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor, was recently caught in a very uncomfortable situation where both the the stars required his acumen.
Finally Ranbir got Ahmed’s coveted dates, while Shahid shot two of his songs with choreographer Chinni Prakash. However there are no hard feelings between Ahmed and Shahid.
“It is true I had to opt out two songs with Shahid for Kunal Kohli’s film to do the short film with Ranbir. But there was no other way out. Ranbir’s film is a totally new experience. He has narrated an entire love story in four minutes,” he said.
“We had to use a 100 Nissan cars, arrange expert drivers from Bangalore and Mumbai…It was an entirely new experience. In fact, Shahid was most co-operative. He advised me to go for the Ranbir project. I felt sorry to see Shahid do the two songs with Chinni Prakashji whom Shahid had never worked with before. But this film with Ranbir was a completely new opportunity for me. I couldn’t let go of it,” he added.
Ahmed insists the last-minute opting out has not affected his long-standing friendship with Shahid.
“In fact, I am choreographing another number with Shahid for Kunal Kohli’s film. There are no hard feelings between me and Shahid,” he said adding that he’s taking a long sabbatical from choreography.
“I’ve been at it since I was 19. I need a break to spend time with my children,” he said.
