If all goes well, television actor Gurmeet Choudhary’s debut film will go on the floors in May. Choudhary, who is currently busy shooting for Fear Factor in South Africa, will be seen playing one of the lead actors in this dance-based yet-to-be-titled film, which will be directed by choreographer Swaroop. “Once Gurmeet is back, we shall to start shooting the film in May. Right now, I am in the process of finalising the remaining cast, which will include some fantastic dancers,” stated the director who plans to organise a formal press conference in March. When asked whether he is planning to cast any A-lister in the film, especially since he has shared a good rapport with several of them in the past, Swaroop stated that the script does not require a big name, and he will stick to putting together a good ensemble cast instead.
