Filmmaker Remo D’Souza was keen to make Street Dancer with Katrina Kaif opposite Varun Dhawan. However, the actor had to back out at the last moment and the makers roped in Shraddha Kapoor. After Varun and Katrina, now Remo opened up on having Shraddha on board instead of the Bharat star in his 3d dance film. In his latest interview with an entertainment portal, Remo revealed that he understood why Katrina had to leave the film and no one could do anything about it. The popular Bollywood choreographer added that working with Shraddha is very easy as they share a repo from before.
While talking to Pinkvilla on the occasion of the International Dance Day, Remo threw some light on the cast of Street Dancer. Saying ‘whatever happens, happens for good’, he praised Shraddha and said she knows how Remo and his team work on a film. Therefore, it’s ‘great’ to be collaborating again after ABCD 2. He was quoted saying, “We wanted Katrina Kaif, but the date issue happened as Bharat came in line. We were starting the film and that’s how we had to change the female lead.”
Recently, talking on the same issue, Katrina told Mumbai Mirror that there are no regrets as she looks forward to collaborating with Varun on some other project. Earlier, even Varun spoke on the issue and revealed that Katrina called him after making the decision of leaving the film. He said the actor respected their bonding and told him about the problem of having her dates clashed with the shooting of Bharat.
This is the second time Varun and Shraddha will be seen on-screen. They were earlier paired in Remo’s ABCD 2. Street Dancer also features Nora Fatehi in an important role apart from other dancers. The film is slated to hit the screens on November 8 this year.
