Bollywood choreographer Remo DSouza has been in the industry for over two decades, but the dance master believes “there is still a lot of learning to do”.


In an interview with IANSlife, Remo, who has collaborated with Cure.fit for their new show ‘Moves Like Remo’, shares his views on online dance lessons and more. Excerpts:

Follow NewsGram on LinkedIn to know what’s happening around the world.

How do you feel about the idea of live online dance classes?

Remo: Given the current situation in the world, this entire concept of dancing through live classes is different, but in a good way. I couldn’t ask for anything better than this at the moment.

Teaching dance digitally compared to a traditional classroom, what’s the difference?

Remo: There is no better time than the present to approach this methodology to teach the art of dance. While teaching digitally is different in its own way, it is also a lot of fun and so full of energy.

Tell us about your collaboration with Cure.fit.

Remo: This collaboration with Cure.fit is a great opportunity for me to connect with my audience. After being a judge for several years on dance shows, I felt that my viewers needed personal one-on-one interaction with me. This association gives me the perfect platform to offer a more connected experience to my audience, that too in my original avatar as a dancer and a choreographer.


“Hrithik Roshan is hands down the best dancer in Bollywood according to me”, said Remo. Pinterest

What role does virtual reality play when it comes to dancing?

Remo: VR is a great tool for our times. It is nice to be where you want and with whoever you want, sometimes with millions together. It’s almost like a superpower. And given the increasing importance of technology in our lives each day, it is also applicable in almost all fields, even dance.

Tell us about your most favourite piece of work.

Remo: I don’t really pick favourites from my body of work, I love and enjoy everything I do.

Who do you think is the best dancer in Bollywood?

Remo: Hrithik Roshan is hands down the best dancer in Bollywood according to me.

Any celebrity who you wish to choreograph one day?

Remo: I think I have choreographed almost everyone at this point but I would like to mention Ranveer Singh. I love his energy and I know he will create magic.

Who is your favourite choreographer from the younger lot?

Remo: Rahul Shetty, Kruti Mahesh, and Punit Pathak

How has your journey in the industry been? Any takeaways?

Remo: Looking back at all my years in the industry, I can only describe it as a fun ride. After all these years, I do think there is still a lot of learning to do. Every day and every song is a lesson in itself. (IANS)

Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

"In India, to be born as a man is a crime, to question a woman is an atrocious crime, and this all because of those women who keep suppressing men in the name of feminism."

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal. It states nowhere that women should get more wages than men, that women deserve more respect than men, that's pseudo-feminism.

Yakshi statue by Kanayi Kunjiraman at Malampuzha garden, Kerala

Kerala is a land of many good things. It has an abundance of nature, culture, art, and food. It is also a place of legend and myth, and is known for its popular folklore, the legend of Yakshi. This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

Ancient India not only made mentions of homosexuality but accepted it as well.


The LGBTQ+ acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and others. In India LGBTQ+ community also include a specific social group, part religious cult, and part caste: the Hijras. They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
