However, much before that, he was seen grooving along with other junior artists behind Hrithik Roshan in the title track of Dhoom 2. The one who had once danced behind the Greek God of Bollywood is now one of the greatest actors of B town.

Before setting the dance floor on fire, this lanky man did have his shares of struggle too. Remo D’ Souza, who is now one of the leading choreographers of Bollywood and can amaze us with his rocking moves, did not have it as a cake walk when he had first set foot in Bollywood. He had to go through innumerable ups and downs. Not having the great looks nor the royal bloodline, this man just had his talent to take him forward. Before attaining glory, he had been seen behind Shah Rukh Khan’s famous song, “Zara Tasveer Se Tu” from Pardes.
