After actress Katrina Kaif stepped down from director Remo D’Souza’s upcoming dance film, rumours are doing rounds that actresses Shraddha Kapoor and Nora Fatehi have been roped in to star alongside actor Varun Dhawan. Remo had earlier confirmed that Katrina was stepping down as she had some major and genuine date issues, and following that the hunt began for someone who would replace her as the lead. Two names had come up, one was Sara Ali Khan and the other Shraddha.
According to Super Cinema, highly placed sources have revealed that Shraddha will be playing the lead in the movie which has been tentatively titled as Street Dancer. This will not be the first time that Varun, Shraddha and Remo are working together, as in the past the trio did take part in blockbuster movie ABCD 2. The only addition will be Nora who is going to be the second lead.
For the upcoming dance movie, filming will begin in Punjab from January and the rest of the shoot will take place in London. Just like the 2015 movie ABCD 2, this one too will involve a lot of dancing and will be in 3D, but it will not be a sequel but instead a stand-alone.
Where Katrina is concerned, as per PeepingMoon, media reports had stated that the reason she did not agree to be a part of the movie was because she was miffed with Varun and the producers for not allotting her time. Katrina is currently busy with shooting of Bharat, in which she stars alongside Salman Khan. Reportedly she had told close friends that had Varun delayed the shooting by a month, she would have been able to take part in the dance movie.
About Remo’s movie, it is said to be backed by T-Series and the makers intend to release it in the last quarter of 2019.
