Remo D’Souza has decided to promote his upcoming film — ABCD – Anybody Can Dance — in a novel manner. The choreographer-turned-director, along with producers UTV Motion Pictures has decided to cut a special promo for the film. “The trailer will feature Remo performing the signature steps of veteran Bollywood film stars. It will be a tribute to the dance moves made famous by the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, Shammi Kapoor, Dharmendra and Dev Anand,” says a source.
For the 3D film, which was announced earlier this year, Remo has roped in some of the finest performers from the dance reality show, Dance India Dance, which he had previously judged. The show’s winners Salman Khan, Dharmesh, Prince, Mayuresh and Vrushali play central roles. Lauren Gottlieb, the victor of the popular talent show, So You Think You Can Dance, features in the film too. And the highlight, of course, will be Ganesh Acharya and Prabhudheva, who will also act in the movie. The latter will also be paying tribute to Michael Jackson by performing his signature moves in a song from the film.
“We’re planning to cut some special promos,” says Remo, adding, “For decades, these actors have made our country dance to their steps, which have become trademarks of sorts. A tribute to these legends in a film like ABCD seems apt.”
Meanwhile, the makers are still in talks with Madhuri Dixit, who they want to rope in for a number with Prabhudheva. The two last danced together for the song, Que Sera Sera from Pukar (2000).
