Remo D’Souza (in­set), who re­cently chore­ographed for film­maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s (left) up­com­ing film, Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani, says that he was sur­prised when the lat­ter ap­proached him for the film.

The film­maker-chore­og­ra­pher, who is known for his ur­ban dance style, was ini­tially un­sure about where his style would fit in the pe­riod drama star­ring Ran­veer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Cho­pra, but Bhansali con­vinced him.

“Remo couldn’t be­lieve his luck when Sanjay called him to chore­o­graph two songs in his pe­riod drama,” says a source.

Con­firm­ing the news, Remo says he not only en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence, but also ended up learn­ing a lot from the project. “I was stumped when Sanjay (Leela) Bhansali asked me to chore­o­graph the songs for Ba­ji­rao Mas­tani. I wanted to know how he thought of me for this when I’m iden­ti­fied with more ur­ban chore­og­ra­phy in songs like Disco Dee­wane and Bad­tameez Dil. But he said the chal­lenge was in mak­ing me dis­card my im­age and do some­thing to­tally un­ex­pected,” says Remo, who has chore­ographed the songs Dee­wani Mas­tani and Pinga in the film.
