Mumbai: Ace choreographer-turned-director Remo D`Souza, who is gearing for the release of his dance-centric drama, `Any Body Can Dance` (ABCD)`, is now all set to make an action movie which he claims will be the most expensive venture in India till date.
"It is a big action movie that I am working on.. It is not like `Rowdy Rathore` or `Dabangg`. It is something else. It is original script," Remo told PTI in an interview.
"These are all remakes (`Rowdy Rathore`)....It is all 80s masala, which is back again. And after every few years the trend changes. All I can say is the action film that I will be making will be of Hollywood stature," he said.
When asked is the recent success of action films a source of inspiration for him to this film, Remo says, "No. This action film was something I always wanted to do. I have been working on this script since seven years. It is a very big film and people get scared to put in that much amount. Because that film will be India`s most expensive one. It will be shot in 3D."
"I am approaching people...So let`s see if somebody is ready to put in that much money...Let’s see how it shapes up," the `Faltu` director said.
Remo`s next project `Any Body Can Dance` (ABCD)` is India`s first high-octane dance film in 3D, starring film industry`s best choreographers of the last few decades with Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya playing key roles.
`ABCD` also stars reality dancing show `Dance India Dance` winners like Salman Khan, Dharmesh, Prince, Mayuresh and Vrushali, all essaying central characters. The film is slated to release on September 15.
"It was fantastic working with Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya. There were no creative inputs from them. They both are actors, directors and choreographers themselves?so they knew what I wanted. They gave me full freedom," Remo said.
"I am a big fan of Raju Hirani. I love the way he puts his thoughts and makes the film entertaining and there is a message in each of his movie. That way I also want to do. I have tried to do that in `ABCD`," he said.
