Remo D’Souza has signed a two-film contract with UTV Motion Pictures and one of them could be a sequel to his just released 3D dance film ABCD – Anybody Can Dance if sources are to be believed.
“UTV has whole-heartedly backed my vision of making India’s first ever 3D dance film ‘ABCD’. They were kicked about the project from the word go. I’m really happy I had them as my producer,” Remo said in an interview.
“It’s important for a producer to trust his director and his vision and UTV has done just that. I’m really excited that I have been offered two more films by UTV – one of which could be the sequel to ABCD. UTV and I have had a super journey and we are only strengthening our bond now,” he added.
Siddharth Roy Kapur, managing director, Studios, Disney UTV, said: “Remo is of course a gifted choreographer.”
He added, “We have had a wonderful experience with Remo on ABCD. The film showcases his amazing ability to thrill and entertain his audience while at the same time to handle emotion and drama with sensitivity and depth.”
Released Friday, ABCD stars ace choreographers like Prabhudheva, Ganesh Acharya and Terence Lewis.
“He has worked with a team of superb dancers and brought out the actor in each of them. To shoot an arduous dance film at this massive scale in 3D is not an easy job, but Remo coupled his talent and ability with patience and perseverance to make a superb film. We’re thrilled to be continuing our association with him, and here’s to making many more great movies together!” said Kapoor.
ABCD has got rave reviews and is running to house-full crowds. However, critics have not given the film a thumbs up and have emphasized that the actors in the movie were amazing dancers, but they lacked acting skills. Let’s hope the sequel – if any – is going to be much better in terms of performances!
