'No bad blood between Jiah and me'


Ken initially shot with Jiah but he had to drop the actress from the project as the script went through considerable changes, forcing the director to look for a new face.

“Initially, the film was about the struggle of a dancer but when we saw the first draft we felt that romantic angle was important. We rewrote the entire track and the new character that emerged was something that Jiah would not have been right for. It was of a very sweet and cute girl,” Ken said in an interview.

But the director does not want to be a prisoner of the past, saying he would love to work with Jiah again.“If I get a right script for Jiah I will 100 per cent approach her. We have not spoken after that because she got busy with Housefull and I with Chance Pe Dance but I won't think twice before approaching her and obviously it will be up to her to take it up. I hope there is no bad blood between us,” he added.

The director, who shares a close friendship with his film's star Shahid Kapoor whom he launched in Ishq Vishq in 2003, said working with the actor in Chance Pe Dance was an entirely new experience.
