Why Remo chose to go 3D with ABCD

Indo Asian News Service
7 December 2012

Mumbai, Dec 7 (IANS) Choreographer-director Remo D'Souza says he chose to make his dance film "ABCD - AnyBody Can Dance" in 3D because he wanted to portray a very common thing as dance in a very special manner.

"I could have made it a normal film, but I chose 3D because you see dance everyday. In India, every other day something happens around dance, at home or on the TV. So how could I portray it as something different? That was the reason I went with 3D because I had to show dance in a new way," the 38-year-old said here Thursday in an interview.

"When I started writing the film, I knew I will make it in 3D and I wrote the script keeping that in mind," he added.

Remo says there was a time in Bollywood, when dance-based films and musicals were not uncommon. He just wanted to revive that.

"I always wanted to make a dance film. This is the only genre which has been in Bollywood since the days of black and white films, but then it got lost for many years. Initially, such films were 'Navrang' and 'Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje' and they were all musicals. Other genres took over and no one touched it again," Remo said.

"I always had this in mind that when I start making films, I will make a dance musical film. I did not get that chance initially," he added.

"ABCD - AnyBody Can Dance" is said to be India's first 3D dance film. It features Prabhudheva, Kay Kay Menon, Ganesh Acharya, Dharmesh, Salman Yusuff Khan, Mayuresh and others. The film hits theatres Feb 8 next year.
