MUMBAI: No, choreographer Remo D’Souza hasn’t taken up teaching as a career. He’s teaching us a new philosophy of life, that ‘Any Body Can Dance’ i.e. ‘ABCD.
‘ABCD’ is a new film directed by Remo. It is Bollywood’s very first high octane 3D dance film, along the lines of Hollywood dance cinema like ‘Step Up’ and ‘Honey’.
The film is produced by Siddharth Roy Kapoor of UTV. The first look and trailer of the film was launched here at PVR multiplex in Mumbai, amid much excitement.
We spotted Remo D’Souza and Prabhudheva, setting the stage on fire with their killer dance moves. Also present at the launch were Siddharth Roy Kapoor, CEO of UTV Motion Pictures and Dharmesh Yelande.
In the film, we will see Choreographer-director Remo D’Souza pay tribute to evergreen actors like Dev Anand, Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra in the first promo of ‘ABCD’. He will even be seen performing their signature dance moves.
Remo, along with the film’s producers UTV Motion Pictures, had decided to create a special promo for the film, which will feature Remo performing signature steps of other actors like late Rajesh Khanna and Shammi Kapoor too.
“We are planning to cut some special promos. For decades, these actors have made our country dance to their steps, which have become trademarks of sorts. A tribute to these legends in a film like ‘ABCD’ seems apt,” Remo had said.
The stars of the 3D dance-based film will feature performers from reality show “Dance India Dance”, a show that Remo had previously judged. Winners of ‘Dance India Dance’, Salman Khan, Dharmesh, Prince, Mayuresh and Vrushali play central roles in the movie, which has ace choreographers Ganesh Acharya and Prabhudheva as highlights.
Maverick choreographer Prabhudheva will also be paying tribute to Michael Jackson by performing his signature moves in a song from the film.
Talks are also on to rope in Bollywood’s dancing diva Madhuri Dixit, for a special number with Prabhudheva. The duo had previously set the stage on fire with ‘Que Sera Sera’ in ‘Pukar’.
