New Delhi: Choreographer-turned-director Remo D'Souza swears by dancing and the director's second venture 'Anybody Can Dance' revolves around his first love- dance. After making a college drama with newcomer Jackky Bhagnani, Remo is yet again donning the hat of the director but this time with another choreographer and director Prabhudeva.
Prabhudeva, who was last seen showing his acting prowess in 1996 Bollywood film 'Sapne' will return to the actor's shoes with India's first 3D dance film 'Anybody Can Dance'. The film revolves around a dancer Vishnu, played by Prabhudeva, who decides to take a squad of raw dancers under his wings to turn them into the India's best dance squad.
Apart from toying with the idea of making choreographers like Prabhudeva and Ganesh Acharya be a part of the film, Remo D'Souza has also cast the participants of dance reality show 'Dance India Dance' in his first 3D film. Salman Yusuff Khan, Dharmesh, Vrushali, Mayuresh and Prince are some of the dancers who will be seen making their Bollywood debut with 'AnyBody Can Dance'.
Will Remo D'Souza be able to live up to the expectations of the audiences? Charu Thakur of IBNLive is inside the theatre to find it out.
