This is the first time that Varun and Shraddha have been seen in a dance based movie. Directed by choreographer – director Remo D’Souza, the film also features Lauren Gottlieb and dance guru Prabhudheva. The film is based on the real life story of a dance group of India from Nala Sopara.
The makers of the movie have hit the bulls eye by releasing the movie at the time when kids are all geared up for outings with their parents. A total family entertainer, theatres remained jam packed on the weekend.
Until now, ‘ABCD 2’ is the highest opening weekend grosser with Rs. 46.32 cr, followed by Akshay Kumar’s ‘Gabbar is Back’ which made Rs. 39.41 cr and Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ and Priyanka Chopra – Ranveer Singh’s ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ which made Rs. 38.15 cr and Rs. 37.05 cr respectively.
