It has been two years since Remo D’Souza directed his last film Street Dancer. The choreographer-turned-filmmaker is now set to helm his next film and as per a report in Hindustan Times, he has cast Manoj Bajpayee for the same.Has Remo D’Souza signed actor Manoj Bajpayee for his next?
A source told the publication, “From what we heard D’Souza was initially supposed to direct a dance based digital series, marking his debut on the digital platform. For the project, actor Avneet Kaur was almost finalised, while the hunt for the male lead left the makers scratching their heads.”
“The choreographer-director wanted someone relatively fresh as his male protagonist while the studio backing the project was single minded about getting actor Ishaan Khatter on board, resulting in a deadlock. Owing to this, the project has been stalled for now. Meanwhile, D’Souza steered towards another project, a film that will be helmed by National Film Award winning actor Manoj Bajpayee.”, the publication further added. The movie is expected to go on the floors in the first half of this year.
“This one is a special film for Remo. It isn’t a dance film and is based on real life. The film is at a very early stage. The first meeting for pre-production will take place this week,” the source added.
On the other hand, The Family Man actor’s representatives confirmed the news to the publication, saying “The talks are on. There is a creative agreement on most of the things, but the contract is yet to be signed.”
