UTV signs Remo D'Souza for a two film deal

By Glamsham Editorial

Disney UTV has signed choreographer-turned-director Remo D'Souza for a two-film deal. One of the films is likely to be the sequel of ABCD - ANY BODY CAN DANCE which is directed by Remo and has released worldwide today (8th February) and stars Prabhudheva, Ganesh Acharya, Dance India Dance winners Salman Khan, Dharmesh, Prince, Mayuresh and Vrushali and Lauren Gottlieb (the finalist of the popular international television dance talent show 'So You Think You Can Dance').

"Remo is of course a gifted choreographer, but as Prabhudheva said after working with him, he is an even better director! 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. He has worked with a team of superb dancers and brought out the actor in each of them. To shoot a grueling 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 Siddharth Roy Kapur, Managing Director - Studios, Disney UTV

"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 and I'm really happy I had them as my producer. It's important for a producer to trust his director, trust the vision and UTV has done just that. I'm really excited that I have been offered two more films under the UTV banner - one which could be the sequel to ABCD - which I'm currently working upon. UTV and I have had a super journey and we are only strengthening our bond now. We will do some great work together," said director Remo D'Souza
