The film will be directed by Remo D’Souza, who earlier directed Varun in the super hit ‘ABCD 2’. It will also star actor-choreographer-director Prabhu Deva, besides Dharmesh Yelande, Raghav Juyal and Punit Pathak, who played key roles in ABCD 2.
The film is expected to go on the floors this year and release on November 8, 2019.
Mr Kumar said, ‘Dance and music go together. As a brand synonymous with music, it seemed natural to produce India’s biggest dance film. Having a committed director like Remo, who is passionate about and master of several dance forms, is a blessing.’
According to Remo, ‘Isn’t it just appropriate that a film about music and dance is produced by the man heading the biggest music company in Bollywood? And I get to direct Varun, one of the best dancers today, and Katrina, who has shown us she can shake a mean leg.’
Bhushan Kumar adds, ‘Varun is a born entertainer. The audience love his antics on screen, especially his dance moves. Katrina has talent and the ability to work hard – she also has a unique mesmerising quality.
‘Working with Remo again for India’s biggest dance film is huge. I performed once in New York with Katrina and it was electric. She’s gonna bring her A game, so I need to get back into shape. Bhushan is not only a strong producer, who has over a period of time built a great marketing and distribution machinery, but he also contributes a lot creatively, specially in music department,’ Varun said.
‘I am super excited to be joining Remo’s vision to make India’s ultimate dance film. Varun’s passion is so wonderful; he works tirelessly to create magic. And, Bhushan Kumar with his understanding of market dynamics, as a producer will ensure it is the most talked-about film of 2019. I can’t wait to start this journey,’ Katrina said.
