Choreographer Remo D'Souza makes debut as director

"I have done over 100 films and directed 1000 songs. Direction is one step ahead. A choreographer is the director of songs. The only difference is that I am graduating from directing a three minute part of the movie to a full fledged film," Remo said at the digital launch of the film's music here today.

Speaking about the film, Remo who is currently judging 'Jhalak Dikhla Ja' on Sony, said 'Faltu' was a not just a love story, but about education system and coming of age of the young generation.

He promised that the film will not be "faltu" as the title suggests but declined to elaborate on the title.

"This was an idea I and Jackky Bhagnani had in mind and I am grateful to Jackky's father Vashuji for helping us realise our dream," he added.

He admitted that filmmaking was a tougher task than directing songs.

"As a choreographer, I am just committing three days to shoot a three minute song, edit it and hand it over to the director. But, as a director, I am responsible for the entire movie and this is what I am finding very challenging,"he said.

Remo said he had directed a Bengali film and had won an award for it. "Since then I wanted to turn director," he added.

'Faltu' stars Riteish Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani, Arshad Warsi, Miss India Puja Gupta among others.
