Varun Dhawan is playing the lead role in Remo D’Souza’s Street Dancer 3D and the actor recently wrapped up the film’s shoot. His film also features real-life street dancers from across the country and now, Remo and Varun, along with producers Bhushan Kumar and Lizelle D’Souza, are launching a nationwide campaign to motivate dancers from underprivileged background.
“The idea of this film is to connect with street performers of the country and showcase their potential to the world. We start by sharing stories of the people who are a part of our film,” said Varun.
“Dance and music go hand-in-hand and are one of my biggest passions. I was blown away by these dancers and I knew one film was never going to be enough to do justice to their talent. That’s why we have created this series,” he further added.
The film, which also features Shraddha Kapoor and Nora Fatehi, has dancers from Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra to name a few. “I know these dancers. Now, I want the entire world to know them as well. There’s also a talented girl from Nalasopara, whose story is sure to motivate a lot of women,” stated the young star.
Varun revealed, “Bhushan ji and Remo sir have agreed to donate a percentage of the film’s profits to a welfare fund for the dancers. There are so many of them who don’t have a home, so the money would a big help. I will speak to my industry friends to help them out further.”
Street Dancer 3D is slated to release on January 26, 2020.
