Releasing tomorrow, Friday January 24th, is the Remo D’Souza directed dance film Street Dancer 3D. The movie is built around street dance face-off between two teams – one led by Shraddha Kapoor’s character Inayat called the ‘Rule Breakers’ and the other one led by Varun Dhawan’s character Sahej team ‘Street Dancers.’
Varun Dhawan is once again all set to blow you away with his dancing skills. Add to the excitement of the film is that his crew of dancers is some of the absolute best in India today!
The ‘Street Dancer’ team of Varun Dhawan has India’s most lovable dancers who have become household names like- Dharmesh, Raghav Juyal, Sushant Pujari, Pravin Bhosale, Prashant Shinde, Chandani and Punit J Pathak who also plays Varun Dhawan’s brother in the movie.
Varun’s camaraderie with his team is equally good on and off-screen. The actor shares, “My team is a family to me now. We have bounded a lot as we have lived together and practised together for all those 65 days. There was genuine fun that we had while filming the movie. I have worked with Dharmesh, Puneet, Raghav, Sushant, Pravin and Prashant while Chandani became a sister to us. When you see the film, you will see that there is so much bonding on-screen which was off-screen as well. Even before shots, we were in the same room, listening to music, eating food, working out in the evening, training together. We were always together and doing things together like a crew.”
He further adds. “Practicing together was difficult initially, but because my team was so strong and they pushed me, I have enjoyed it. Also, there are a lot of stunts in the film, so to do that you have to trust your team and they always had my back.”
The team ‘Rule Breakers’ along with Shraddha has boasts incredible dancers like Salman Yusuff Khan, Pavan Rao, Vartika Jha, Nivedita Sharma, Tiko, Vinay Khandelwal, Pravin Shinde, and Shashank Dogra and Caroline. The gang practiced for months to finesse the different dance forms which led to a lot of off-screen bonding and fun on sets which is visible onscreen.
Talking about her team Shraddha Kapoor shares, “My Rule breaker team is like a family to me now. We have struggled together and put in lots of effort to look effortless. It was great fun to practice together as we fed off each other’s energies to become more and more perfect.
I believe that it’s adversity that makes the team stay together. We were performing against all odds, emotional physical, in fact, our on and off-screen bonding is what kept us together. I know I have made friends for life with my rule-breakers team. They would cheer me up saying ‘Team leader’ but they are the ones who were so supportive. I can’t express the amount of gratitude I have for each one of them.”
Adding further she shares, “My character is really passionate about keeping her team motivated and she is extremely competitive just like the rest of her team. She gets a lot of inspiration from her team. She is so confident about herself as a dancer that she is borderline arrogant and it’s this confidence that drives her entire team to be really competitive.”
