After days of speculations, it has finally been confirmed that Shraddha Kapoor has been signed on to play the female lead in Bhushan Kumar and Remo D’souza’s forthcoming movie, which is being touted as the biggest dance film ever made in Hindi cinema.
Though the makers have yet not confirmed the official title of the film, there are reports that it is the third instalment of the super successful Hindi film franchise, ABCD (2013). The yet-to-be-titled project will be directed by Remo D’souza.
Shraddha, who is the latest one to join the team, plays a professional dancer representing the Indian contingent alongside Varun Dhawan and his team in the movie. The mega-budgeted film is set to go on floors in Punjab on January 22.
Shraddha confirms coming onboard for the project, “I’m excited to reunite with Remo sir, Prabhu Deva sir and Varun after ABCD 2. This was made possible by Bhushanji who brought us back and believed in this amazing story. It is going to be a lot of hard work for everyone involved, but we are all pumped up.”
Bhushan Kumar, who is producing the movie with Remo’s wife Lizelle, says that the plan is to make India’s biggest dance film in 3D, “The audience has already seen Varun and Shraddha’s chemistry, now, Remo will redefine dance for our audience.”
Remo D’souza adds, “It feels like old friends have come together to help us. We have worked as a team in the past and I’m sure it will be a fun ride again”.
The film is expected to release towards the end of the year.
