Choreographer-turned-director Remo D'Souza has expressed his desire to do a film with actress Madhuri Dixit, which would be on the lines of noted filmmaker V Shantaram's Navrang and Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje.

"I am working on a film that I want to do with Madhuri. It is a musical on the lines of 'Navrang', 'Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje', but revisited now," Remo said.

Navrang is a 1959 film by Shantaram Rajaram Vankudre popularly known as V Shantaram. The film had Shantaram's wife Sandhya in the lead.

His yet another film was Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baje (1955). It again had Sandhya and dancer Gopi Krishna in the lead roles. Remo and Madhuri have been judging the dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' from last three seasons.

Remo is writing this film keeping in mind only Madhuri and is hopeful she will accept the offer to do it. "I am writing this film only for her. Lets' hope I finish writing the film and start work on it soon. She knows the day I complete the script, I will talk to her formally on this and I am hopeful she will say yes," he said.

Remo has his hands full with films like an action movie on the lines of Hollywood hit Fast and Furious, ABCD sequel.

Madhuri is currently busy with Anubhav Sinha's Gulab Gang and Vishal Bharadwaj's Dedh Ishqiya.
