Remo D'Souza, who has directed two successful dance-themed flicks is all set to make another one. Touted to be one of the biggest dance films India has ever seen, the director had retained his 'ABCD 2' star Varun Dhawan and had sought for a fresh pairing with Katrina Kaif. However, after the actress opted out of the project, the makers have now found a replacement.
Shraddha Kapoor who has previously worked with both Remo and Varun in 'ABCD 2' has now officially joined the cast of this untitled film. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh confirmed the news on social media. With this casting, all three are in familiar territory as they have all worked with together and the film was a success too.
What's more, the untitled flick is expected to go on floors soon on January 22. The shoot is touted to kick off in Punjab and a major chunk of the film will be shot in the UK. The movie will be bankrolled by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Lizelle D'Souza. Varun Dhawan also shared a picture with Shraddha recently, making it a confirmation from his side. Now, whether the movie is the next installment of the 'ABCD' series or a new film altogether remains to be seen.
Earlier on, Katrina had opted out of the film but had done so amicably and professionally. The reason had been the lack of dates as she had to shoot for Salman Khan's 'Bharat', hence she could not devote the time to this film. Meanwhile, there are reports that Nora Fatehi has joined the film's cast.
