Remo D’Souza is a dancer, choreographer, artist and movie director. He struggled hard to reach where he is today. Although he is mainly involved in choreography, he has contributed to filmmaking in other Indian movie industries, Bengali cinema. He judged the reality dance based serial Dance India Dance. He learnt in Jamnagaar, Gujaraat. He did his 12th from there and in his Hsc board exam he realized that he didn’t had any interest in studies. He immediately left school and landed in Bombay to struggle. Although dad wanted him to join Air Force. He did not had any guru , he loved dance since his early young days and would perform in school functions and all that kind of occasions. Although his craving to learn more about dancing is what brought him to Bombay. It was dance. Whatever He has learnt about dance until now is by his own. He hasn’t taken any professional training. He learnt it by watching films, videos etc. He will rather say Michael Jackson is his guru as he would copy his steps watching him dancing in his videos and choreograph his own steps by adding something extra. At the beginning he had no source of income and consider himself lucky to be staying along with a really sweet household. After few days he opened a dance class by the name of Super Brats at Churni Road. I with 3 of his buddies opened 2 more branches of the institute, one in Andheri and other in Borivali. He would travel to Churni Road in the morning, take the class there, come to Borivili for the second class and catch the train to come to Andheri for his last class a few time before he could go home. Initially he had 4 students and gradually it increased. He got money in that way although there was a season of it, the rainy seasons were very bad. At one point he had literally no money; not even to give to the people along with whom he was staying as paying guest. He lied to them that he had his classes and will come after 2 days. For those 2 days, he stayed at Bandraa station without having food. It was in All India Dance Competition that his team came first and we got noticed. At that time, Ahmed Khan was doing work on Ram Gopal Varmaa’s Rangeelaa and was on the look out for fresh faces. He tried out him and he got selected. At the beginning he was rejected because of his dark complexion and unattractive features whereas Ahmed wanted chikna and Gora-goraa Ladkaa. Although luckily Ahmed’s assistant knew about his dancing abilities and insisted him to take me in the movie. So, I got selected again for Rangeelaa’s first song, Ai re ai re That time Ram Gopal Varmaa loved his character so much that he would keep him in all his scenes. If you see the movie you will notice that it opens along with his close up along with him sitting and having a bidi. That was his first chance as a dancer and having a close up and opening shot in 70mm screen in Hindi language movie is a really big thing that made his career. From there he began assisting Ahmed. After assisting Ahmed Khan for one yr, he got the confidence to take on an independent project. Although at the same time, he was worried as for that he will had to leave Ahmed and if the project didn’t click, he will be nowhere. It was Anubhaav Sinha who gave him his first video. It was Sonu Nigam’s album Deewanaa. Luckily the video was a big hit and he did work on countless more videos with Anubhaav and the others. There was time when he was doing work on 4 videos in one day. As far as movie is concerned, he got his first break in Hansaal Mehta’s Dil Pe Mat Le Yar, that unfortunately didn’t do well at the box office. It was again Anubhaav Sinha who gave him his movie Tum Bin that proved to be a big hit. Although the real breakthrough he got is from the movie Kante where he choreographed item number Ishq Samundaar proved to be a major success. After Tum Bin and Kante proving to be hits, he was on the seventh heaven actually.
