After establishing himself as one of the leading choreographers in Bollywood, Remo D’Souza turned to direction and made his directorial debut with comic-caper F.A.L.T.U in 2011. The film, mostly starring newcomers, emerged as one of the surprise hits of the year.

D’Souza followed F.A.L.T.U with a dance flick called ABCD: Any Body Can Dance (2013). Having helmed three dance flicks so far, including ABCD, ABCD 2 (2015) and Street Dancer 3D (2020), Remo says that he is done with the dance genre for now.

His recent dance film, Street Dancer 3D, starred Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles. Though the movie released with great pre-release buzz, it somehow failed to live up to the high expectations of the audience. But moving on from the under-performance of Street Dancer 3D, Remo is now working on his next directorial outing, which is not going to be based on the dance genre.

Spilling some beans on his next, Remo tells a publication that he is currently working simultaneously on two scripts. “It will either be a sports drama or an action film for me next, not a dance film. I am working simultaneously on two scripts and both are equally dear to me. I will decide by April which one I’ll do first,” says the choreographer-turned-filmmaker.

Meanwhile, rumours are rife in the tinsel town of Bollywood that Remo D’Souza and Varun Dhawan have fallen out after the underwhelming box-office run of Street Dancer 3D. “You can be sure of one thing: Varun will not star in Remo’s next directorial,” shares a source in the know.
