Danish Zehen, more popularly known for his promising YouTube career and as a participant in the Ace of Space television series died in a tragic car accident last year on December 20. According to sources, the 21-year-old was returning from a wedding when the accident took place near Vashi, Navi Mumbai.
As for the movie, Varun will be seen in battling the dance floor alongside Shraddha Kapoor and Nora Fadehi.
Talking about the movie director Remo said that Varun and Shraddha have impressed him with his dance skills and fans have every reason to be excited about the film.
'The story of Street Dancer is close to my heart. The way Varun, Shraddha, and I are bringing the story alive on the screen, the audience will become a fan of the film. It is an inspirational story and a family entertainer,'' Remo said, speaking to IANS.
''Dance and acting both are performing arts. The more you do it, the more you mature. That is what happened to Varun and Shraddha. I am impressed by Varun’s maturity as a dance performer. Of course, we have collaborated before, and we know how good he is as a dancer. But in our upcoming film, he has really taken it to the next level,'' he added.
The film will be made in 3D. It will hit the screens on January 24.
