Gearing up for his ambitious dance-centric movie Any Body Can Dance (ABCD), noted choreographer-turned-director Remo D'Souza says it was a challenge to make Prabhu Deva do something new in the movie.
"To make him (Prabhu Deva) do something new was a challenge. Prabhu ji is a big director and Ganesh (Acharya) ji has also directed a film. I thought it would be tough to direct them but it was not because they know what a director wants. They are legends in their fields," Remo said at the wrap party of ABCD last night.
UTV Motion Pictures' ABCD-Any Body Can Dance is India's first high-octane dance film in 3D.
Remo made his directorial debut in Bollywood last year with comedy flick F.A.L.T.U, starring Jackky Bhagnani, Puja Gupta, Ritesh Deshmukh and Arshad Warsi.
"I always wanted to make a dance film first. It didn't happen, but now it has happened, thanks to UTV. I am very happy about it," Remo said.
The 38-year-old has roped in some of the finest dancers for the movie. Film industry's best choreographers of the last few decades - Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya, play key characters in the film.
ABCD also stars reality dancing 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.
