Rumors have been rife that ace choreographer and filmmaker Remo D’Souza has decided to direct India’s biggest dance film. After having made dance films like The Flying Jatt, ABCD 1 and ABCD 2, Remo has finally announced his biggest film project yet.
Remo had already announced the film will star Varun Dhawan in the lead. But the female lead was yet to be finalised. The final word from the team of the film came in yesterday night when they announced Katrina Kaif as their lead heroine.
The film will be produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series.
Producer Bhushan Kumar, Chairman and MD, T-Series, said, “Dance and music go hand-in-hand. As a brand synonymous with music, it seemed natural for us to produce India’s biggest dance film. Having a committed director like Remo, who is passionate about dance and has mastered several dance forms, is amazing. Varun is a born entertainer and the audience loves his dance moves. Katrina is talented and hard-working — she also has a mesmerising presence.”
Filmmaker Remo was asked to comment on his new project and its cast. He said, “It’s just appropriate that a film about music and dance is produced by the man heading one of the biggest music companies in Bollywood. With this movie, I will get to direct Varun, who is among the best dancers in the film industry today, and Katrina, who has proved her versatility as a dancer.”
“I am excited to be joining Remo’s vision. Varun’s passion is wonderful; he works tirelessly to create magic on screen. And, Bhushan Kumar, with his understanding of market dynamics as a producer, will ensure this turns out to be the most talked-about film of 2019. I can’t wait to start this journey,” Katrina said.
The duo has a lot of things going for themselves. While Katrina is prepping up and shooting for her upcoming films like Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Zero’ and Aamir Khan’s ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, Varun Dhawan will next be seen in Shoojit Sircar’s October and YRF’s Sui Dhaaga.
The film is expected to go on floors later this year.
