Remo D'Souza to direct 3D action film
Choreographer-turned-director Remo D'Souza, who is gearing for the release of his dance-centric drama 'Any Body Can Dance' (ABCD)', is now all set to make an action movie which he claims will be the most expensive venture in India till date.
"It is a big action movie that I am working on.. it is not like 'Rowdy Rathore' or 'Dabangg'. It is something else. It is an original script," Remo told PTI.
"These are all remakes... it is all '80s masala, which is back again. And after every few years the trend will change. All I can say is the action film that I will be making will be of Hollywood stature," he said.
When asked whether the recent success of action films prompted him to make this film, Remo said, "No. This action film was something I always wanted to do. I have been working on this script for seven years. It is a very big film and people are scared to put in that much amount. This film will be India's most expensive one. It will be shot in 3D."
"I am approaching people... so let's see if somebody is ready to put in that much money... lets see how it shapes up," the 'FALTU' director said.
Remo's next project 'Any Body Can Dance' (ABCD)' is India's first high-octane dance film in 3D, starring some of industry's best choreographers with Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya playing key roles.
'ABCD' also stars reality show 'Dance India Dance' winners like Salman Khan, Dharmesh, Prince, Mayuresh and Vrushali, all essaying central characters. The film is slated to release on September 15.
"It was fantastic working with Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya. There were no creative inputs from them. They both are actors, directors and choreographers themselves... so they knew what I wanted. They gave me full freedom," Remo said.
"3 Idiots" director Rajkumar Hirani is his inspiration and Remo said he has tried to make his film entertianing besides delivering a message. "I am a big fan of Raju Hirani. I love the way he puts his thoughts and makes the film entertaining and there is a message in each of his movies. I have tried to do that in 'ABCD'," he said. PTI
