Exclusive: Shraddha Kapoor replaced by Amrit Maghera in Mad About Dance!

Shraddha had apparently auditioned for the film, but she was rejected

Saahil Prem, who was last seen romancing Sunny Leone in Ragini MMS 2 is all set to direct an international dance extravaganza titled Mad About Dance. And he has roped in Amrit Maghera as the female lead, but what many might not know is that Shraddha Kapoor and Isha Sharvani were initially considered for the same role.

A source attached to the film said, “The film is about international dance forms and for that, the makers needed an heroine who would be comfortable with those dance forms. Shraddha was the first choice for the role, but during the auditions, it became obvious that she couldn’t cope with the challenging dance steps and was rejected. Following this, the makers spoke to Isha Sharvani, but her dance style is quite different from what was required for the film.”

After many auditions, the makers finally got their female lead when choreographer Farah Khan recommended Amrit, who had worked with Khan in the past. “Farah was quite impressed with Amrit’s natural grace as a dancer and the fact that she was trained in the international style of dance and suggested that the makers approach her for the role.”

Saahil said, “We narrowed down on Amrit as she is not only a skilled dancer, but also a good actor. Not only this, she also fits the character, that of an Indian girl raised in the United Kingdom.”
