Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Yashika Mathur

Af­ter the suc­cess of his last movie, ABCD 2 (2015), film­maker Remo D’Souza (right) has be­come more con­fi­dent about the belief that in or­der to make a good movie, it is very im­por­tant to be­lieve in it and that is the ad­vice that he wants to give to as­pir­ing film­mak­ers.

“Peo­ple should make movies they have faith in. I faced a lot of is­sues in my first dance film be­cause peo­ple felt that a dance film can­not do well, but I was pas­sion­ate about this one and ABCD 2 has also done well now,” says Remo, whose first dance film, ABCD: Any Body Can Dance, was a hit on the box of­fice.

The 43-year-old, known for work­ing with young and en­er­getic ac­tors such as Jackky Bhag­nani, Neha Sharma, Varun Dhawan and Shrad­dha Kapoor, feels a suc­cess­ful movie re­quires a good script more than any­thing else.

“I want to tell all the up­com­ing film­mak­ers to be pas­sion­ate about their work. It’s the sto­ries that work and not just ac­tors,” he says.

The film­maker, who is has started with his own dance re­al­ity show, feels that a lot of shows cur­rently on the tube do not fo­cus much on the craft.

“There are shows that are not fo­cus­ing on dance at all and I don’t need to take their name, but peo­ple know which shows I am talk­ing about. There is so much drama in them, but I have to also agree that some shows are do­ing re­ally well,” he says.

D’Souza, who started his TV jour­ney with a dance re­al­ity show, as a men­tor in 2009, said that since then, the danc­ing sce­nario in the coun­try has changed a lot and peo­ple have be­come more aware about dif­fer­ent dance forms.

“Af­ter we started that re­al­ity show, the whole sce­nario of danc­ing has changed in In­dia. Ev­ery­one is now aware about danc­ing and they have come to know of sev­eral dance forms. Be­cause of that, the film in­dus­try has also changed,” he says.
