The Dangerous Isshq star was to be replaced by Jiah Khan, who was also later dropped from the production.
A source told The Times of India: "[Karisma] was recommended by the film's co producer and her friend Shabina Khan but it didn't work out.
"Losing her curves was not suitable for the song. After two days of rehearsal, she was dropped by the director Prabhu Deva himself."
Deva confirmed: "You know, it happens. Things change. There were discussions but sometimes, things don't work out.
"Yes, we have shot the song with three talented dancers. Earlier, we were planning with one but then we thought the song will look good even with five dancers. It's a peppy dance number in a village set up.''
In February, Dangerous Isshq director Vikram Bhatt said that Kapoor's part is a dream comeback role for the actress.
Kareena Kapoor has previously said that her lead character in Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine is inspired by her older sister
