‘This is the best time for dancers’

Film­maker-turned-chore­og­ra­pher Remo D’Souza (left) feels that tal­ented dancers have a very good chance to make it big in the in­dus­try as per­cep­tions have be­gun to change.

“Ev­ery­one knows what dance can do to the film and ev­ery­one is very se­ri­ous about the role it can play. It’s the best time for the dancers in the in­dus­try,” says Remo, whose two dance di­rec­to­ri­als — ABCD: Any­body Can Dance (2013) and ABCD 2 (2015) gar­nered a lot of ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

“The film in­dus­try is chang­ing, and so are the per­cep­tions about dif­fer­ent kinds of films. Peo­ple can now see what won­ders dance movies can do,” he added.

Tele­vi­sion has seen nu­mer­ous dance re­al­ity shows where some of the con­tes­tants make it big by win­ning, and oth­ers con­tinue to hunt for their big break. But Remo says that he has al­ways made sure that chore­og­ra­phers on his dance re­al­ity shows get what they de­serve.

“What­ever shows I have judged and what­ever shows I have done, all of my chore­og­ra­phers are do­ing very well. Be it Dharmesh, Shakti, Raghav or Sal­man. I have about 15 of them, and they all are do­ing very, very well,” says Remo, who will soon launch his own dance re­al­ity show.
