I wanted performers for ABCD 2: Remo D’Souza
Having made ABCD with a bunch of non-actors, director Remo D’Souza says for the sequel he wanted people with well-honed acting skills and so he zeroed down on Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor.
The 43-year-old choreographer-filmmaker is taking the dance franchise forward with the upcoming movie and said the script required actors, who could easily get into the skin of professional dancers in the movie, slated to hit the screens on June 19. “The first film had non-actors, so I made them act. For the second one, I wanted somebody who could perform because the main lead is a very strong character in the film. I wanted an actor who could perform and dance at the same time... I could think of no one but Varun. Shraddha came into the picture after Varun,” Remo told media persons.
