It's official: Shraddha Kapoor replaces Katrina Kaif in Remo D'Souza's upcoming dance film
The film co-starring Varun Dhawan is set to go on floors on January 22
Shraddha Kapoor has replaced Katrina Kaif in Remo D’Souza’s upcoming dance film co-starring Varun Dhawan. Last month, Katrina had dropped out of the yet-to-be-titled project due to date issues with Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat.
Varun and Shraddha were last seen together in Remo’s 2015 dance movie, ABCD 2.
The upcoming film is produced by Bhushan Kumar and Lizelle D’Souza. Shraddha will be seen in the role of a professional dancer representing the Indian contingent alongside Varun Dhawan in the film, which features several dance-offs along the lines of Hollywood franchise Step Up. The film is set to go on floors in Punjab on January 22, with most of the portions planned to be shot in the UK.
Confirming the development, Shraddha said, “I’m excited to reunite with Remo sir, Prabhudehva sir and Varun after ABCD 2. This was made possible by Bhushanji who brought us back and believed in this amazing story. It is going to be a lot of hard work for everyone involved but we are all pumped up.”
On reuniting with Varun and Shraddha, Remo shared, “It feels like old friends have come together to help us. We have worked as a team in the past and I’m sure it will be a fun ride again.”
Producer Bhushan Kumar added that their ambition is to make India’s biggest dance film in 3D. “The audience has already seen Varun and Shraddha’s chemistry, now, Remo will redefine dance for our audience,” he said.
