New Delhi, Nov 21: Earlier, where Salman Khan backed out of a dance film helmed by Remo D'Souza, he thought younger actors like Varun Dhawan, among others were thought about playing a more suitable role. The story of the movie, likely to be titled 'Dancing Dad' was about a single dad with two left feet who learns dancing for his nine-year-old daughter, to join her on the floor during a dance competition.
Since Salman Khan was unsure about hsi oart from the start, Remo approached Varun to replace Salman. In a media report “Varun happily agreed when Remo approached the Badlapur actor. They have collaborated very successfully on Any Body Can Dance. After the socially relevant October with Shoojit Sircar, another dance film seems just the thing Varun needs to do.”
On the work front, Varun Dhawan, who has wrapped up the Delhi schedule of his upcoming film October. Also, when Varun had visited the sets of Super Dancer 2 as a guest, Remo had announced that Varun will be his leading man for the third installment of the ABCD franchise.
