Chance Pe Dance (transl. Chance to Dance) is an Indian Hindi-language dance film starring Shahid Kapoor and Genelia D'Souza and supported by Mohnish Behl and Prince Roddey. It is directed by Ken Ghosh and produced by Ronnie Screwvala under his banner, UTV Motion Pictures.[3] The film was released on 15 January 2010 and failed to make a mark at the box-office.[2].[4] The film's working title was Yahoo and another title, Star, was also considered.[5] Also, the film was shot halfway through with Jiah Khan as the heroine, but was later replaced by Genelia D'Souza.


Sameer Behl (Shahid Kapoor) comes to Mumbai with Bollywood dreams, struggles through the day as a courier boy, and keeps failing in auditions for advertisements. More stereotypes are stuffed in as he refuses to take help from his dad in Delhi, is thrown out from his rented flat by the landlord, and comes away with his calculative companion. One day, a movie director named Rajeev Sharma (Mohnish Behl) sees Sameer dancing and calls him to his office. Soon, Sameer is signed as the male lead in his film, and his friend Tina (Genelia D'Souza) is selected as the choreographer on the same project. Homeless, Sameer sleeps in his car and works as a dance teacher in a school. Subsequently, Sameer loses his film and is disillusioned. Tina finds this out and asks him how he can spend his life like this. After some time, Tina tells him that she also quit the film and did not want to be the choreographer for that film because she saw him upset. Sameer realises the love Tina had for him. Tina encourages him to participate in a television talent-hunt show, the winner of which will win the same role that Sameer was to play. After some time, he agrees to participate in it. After filling up the contest form, he also says "I love you" to Tina. In his screen-test, Sameer dedicates his monologue to his mother. After his monologue, during the interview, he comes to know that his father's shop in Delhi has been demolished. He promises Tina that he will come back for her and leaves to meet his father, heart-broken about the whole thing. After watching Sameer's performance on TV, his father convinces him to go back to Mumbai and participate in the show.

After coming back to the show, he is initially denied entry into the show for being late. However, he is given a chance to perform on the show after Sameer convinces the director. He wins the show and is later shown to be the hero of the movie "Chance Pe Dance" walking the Red Carpet a year later with Tina.



Yahoo was the film's working title, but later, Ken Ghosh confirmed the title Chance Pe Dance in August 2009. Star was also considered, in the initial stages, but the makers rejected it as a film was released in early 2008 starring Kunal Khemu was titled Superstar.

Katrina Kaif was rumoured to be Shahid’s co-star but the makers eventually chose Jiah Khan. She shot for the film but was asked to leave halfway through. Reportedly, she got over-friendly with Shahid Kapoor and was not doing her job well. She was replaced by Genelia D'Souza who shot her scenes in a whirlwind schedule. However, later Khan said that she was asked to leave because the director had a bad eye on her and Kapoor said that he got to know about the replacement when D'Souza came on the set for shooting. Kapoor further said that he has no hand in the replacement of Khan.[6] Chance Pe Dance is loosely based on Shahid Kapoor and D'Souza's lives as it was mentioned on Tere Mere Beach Mein, a show hosted by Farah Khan, that they were both given a second chance in life.


The film was promoted on STAR Plus's Music Ka Maha Muqqabla on Episode 8.
