Just a day ago we had reported that London-based choreographers etc. have been flown down to India to train Varun Dhawan and his leading lady Shraddha Kapoor for their next. Director Remo D’Souza is ensuring that he is pulling all stops for his ambitious dance film which has been tentatively titled Street Dancer. Latest update on that front is that Varun will be learning bhangra and gymnastics amongst other dance forms.
In earlier reports, we had mentioned that the film focuses heavily on hip-hop and similar dance forms. Hence the choreographers will be training Varun Dhawan in dance forms like locking and popping and disco hustle. But it seems that the actor will have to learn more that. Recent reports suggest that Varun will be taking training sessions in bhangra as well because it has a close connect with the story.
Readers, by now, would be aware that the Remo D’Souza film is set against the backdrop of Punjab in brief portions. The shoot schedule will be held in Amritsar and it kicks off from January 22 onwards. Amongst few scenes, the makers will also be shooting a song which is also expected to feature Punjabi actress Sonam Bajwa. Keeping this plotline in mind, the makers have decided to add a bhangra dance song in the film for which Varun will be learning the dance form. It is also being said that the number will feature some tough dance moves.
These reports also have it that the actor is undergoing extensive physical training including a strict diet schedule that the Dhawan boy is expected to follow. While initially the makers were keen on giving him carb-diet, they seem to be unconvinced with the results and decided to change the diet chart for the actor for the film.
On the other hand, Shraddha Kapoor is expected to play the role of a Pakistani dancer and Nora Fatehi too will feature in a pivotal dancer as an international dancer in the film. The London schedule is expected to start from February 8 onwards. Street Dancer is also expected to feature some professional dancers like Shakti Mohan, Vartika Jha, Punit Pathak, Dharmesh Yelande and Raghav Juyal.
