Huma Qureshi was the first choice of director Anees Bazmee for the dance number in Welcome Back, and reportedly the gorgeous lassie was also quite eager to do it. But, what went wrong?
As per sources, other commitments marred her chance to shake a leg with John. Another story doing the rounds is that Huma Qureshi didn’t apparently find the offer lucrative. The director of the film has confirmed both the reports, and has revealed that even though they wanted to rope in Huma for the song, her dates were the issue. Anees even disclosed that the whopping amount the actress quoted was also a problem.
So what if Huma isn’t ready, Anees has cast six new faces for the song to dance along with John Abraham, who is central and crucial to the song.
The shooting for the dance number, choreographed by Ganesh Acharya, is going on in a suburb studio with John Abraham.
