Mumbai, 16 July-2014, Josephine John/DNA: One of Bollywood’s most sought-after actress, Shraddha Kapoor, who had apparently auditioned for an upcoming dance-based film titled ‘Mad About Dance’, has been replaced by Lakme fashion model Amrit Maghera.
The film which will be directed by Saahil Prem, who was seen romancing adult star Sunny Leone in Ragini MMS 2, is based on international dance forms.
Amrit Maghera, reports say, was preferred over Shraddha Kapoor and Isha Sharvani who couldn’t match Maghera’s dancing skills at the auditions. Reports also say that choreographer Farah Khan herself suggested Maghera would be perfect for the role as she had worked earlier for Khan’s film and was trained in the required international dance routine.
Sources close to the film have mentioned that, Kapoor couldn’t cope with the challenging dance steps at the auditions though she was the first preference for the film.
The director of the film also said that, they narrowed down on Maghera as she perfectly meets the requirements of the role of a an Indian girl raised in the UK with her looks and to add on, her acting and dancing skills.
