Multi-tasker Remo D’Souza barely has time to stop and enjoy the super-success of ABCD 2. He is already planning his next film in the ABCD franchise.
Taking time off for a quick conversation Remo says, “I think Siddharth Roy Kapur (producer, UTV) is planning a party. I am now thinking about the next ABCD film.”
Remo says, “Yes, we are now planning ABCD 3. All we know at this point of time is that it has to be even bigger, in every sense, than Part 2. When we had decided to do Part 2, we had to make sure it was several times ahead of the first film. One has to keep taking the franchise forward. Or else there is no point in doing sequels.”
Remo is proud of the fact that he has incepted the revival of the dance genre of filmmaking in Bollywood. “Prior to ABCD, dance films had ceased for a very long time. I’d excitedly go to see so-called dance films that were released. Only to find they had very little to do with dancing. According to me the real dance films in Hindi cinema were V Shantaram’s Navrang, Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje and Jal Bin Machli Nritya Bin Bijli. After these there was a lull in the genre.”
Unlike the other choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan, Remo will continue to choreograph songs for other filmmakers while directing feature films.
But the assignments would now have to selective. “I will only be choreographing for filmmakers when I think I can so something special with a song. I am doing a song in Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale because I’ll get to work with Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol for the first time.”
