Mumbai: Ace choreographer-turned-director Remo D`Souza, who proved himself as a filmmaker by delivering two hit films, wants to work with the Khans someday.

Remo made his debut as a director in Bollywood with `Faltu`, a fun campus film starring Jackky Bhagnani, Puja Gupta, Arshad Warsi and Ritesh Deshmukh in the lead roles.

His next film was ABCD - `Anybody Can Dance`, a 3D dance movie. It had Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya in key roles and also a few participants of dance reality show `Dance India Dance`.

Both the films had relatively new actors but despite that they managed to garner good response.

"Star power is important as before the release there is a strong buzz. I would love to work with stars. I want to work with all the Khans and Kapoor. One day when these stars will realise that I am worth it, may be then they will work with me. Till now I feel I have to prove a lot, so as of now I am happy with newcomers," Remo told reporters.

With the kind of positive response that his two films got, the industry`s perception towards Remo has changed to some extent.

"Things have changed a lot. They (industry people) take me more seriously now. Earlier they thought I am just a choreographer. So when I used to tell people I want to direct films nobody took me seriously," he said.

"It was after the box office success of `Faltu` and `ABCD` that industry people are taking me seriously. I am happy about it," he said.

Remo now has on hand a film backed by Karan Johar.

"I am doing action film that Karan Johar and UTV Motion Pictures are backing. This film stars Siddharth Malhotra. Then I have `ABCD` sequel which will go on floors in December. We will more or less retain the cast - Prabhu Deva, Ganesh Acharya and others. We will also get international stars for the sequel," he said.

"Vashu Bhagnani (producer of `Faltu`) and I haven`t met for long time. But `Faltu` sequel is also in pipeline," he added.
