Behind The Scenes (BTS of Street Dancer 3)

The dance drama film Street Dancer 3 is garnering a lot of hype as we near its release date. To add fuel to the fire, we bring to you an extensive list of BTS from the movie.

1. Street Dancer 3? What happened to 1 & 2?

For the uninitiated, Street Dancer 3 is not a continuation of some long lost franchise from the past or an uneven beginning to a new franchise. It is, in fact, a second sequel to the 2013 blockbuster ABCD: Any Body Can Dance. Initially, titled ABCD, the film’s title was scrapped and later on changed to Street Dancer 3 as Disney owned the rights to the ‘ABCD’ title and it shut down its Indian film production unit.

3. Debutant Vartika Jha was offered the film on Dance Plus 4.

Vartika Jha is a brilliant dancer and was offered a role by Remo D’souza after her outstanding performance in the fourth season of the dance reality show, Dance Plus 4, a show in which Remo serves as a judge. An interesting piece of trivia - one of the best performances of Vartika on the show was on the song “I am a street dancer” from Ilzaam (1986).

4. Injuries

Both the lead actors, Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor, suffered injuries while training for the difficult dance sequences of the film. Varun had to learn Bhangra, Urban and Street hip-hop and during rehearsals with choreographers from UK, he twisted his knee. Being the dedicated actor that Varun is, he refused to stop and just taped his left knee for support and continued with the rehearsals.
