Ace choreographer-turned-director Remo D’Souza,who proved himself as a filmmaker by delivering two hit films,wants to work with the Khans someday.
Remo made his debut as a director in Bollywood with Faltu,a fun campus film starring Jackky Bhagnani,Puja
Gupta,Arshad Warsi and Ritesh Deshmukh in the lead roles.
His next film was ABCD – Anybody Can Dance,a 3D dance movie. It had Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya in key roles and also a few participants of dance reality show Dance India Dance.
Both the films had relatively new actors but despite that they managed to garner good response.
“Star power is important as before the release there is a strong buzz. I would love to work with stars. I want to work with all the Khans and Kapoor. One day when these stars will realise that I am worth it,may be then they will work with me. Till now I feel I have to prove a lot,so as of now I am happy with newcomers,” Remo told PTI.
With the kind of positive response that his two films got,the industry’s perception towards Remo has changed to some extent.
“Things have changed a lot. They (industry people) take me more seriously now. Earlier they thought I am just a choreographer. So when I used to tell people I want to direct films nobody took me seriously,” he said.
“It was after the box office success of Faltu and ABCD that industry people are taking me seriously. I am happy about it,” he said.
Remo now has on hand a film backed by Karan Johar.
“I am doing action film that Karan Johar and UTV Motion Pictures are backing. This film stars Siddharth Malhotra. Then I have ‘ABCD’ sequel which will go on floors in December. We will more or less retain the cast – Prabhu Deva,Ganesh Acharya and others. We will also get international stars for the sequel,” he said.
“Vashu Bhagnani (producer of Faltu) and I haven’t met for long time. But Faltu sequel is also in pipeline,” he added.
