Director-choreographer Remo D’Souza has reportedly been fired from the directorship of the upcoming Bollywood film Race 4. If reports are to be believed, this shocking development emerged after Remo’s disparaging comments against Race 3 rubbed star Salman Khan the wrong way.
According to a new report, Remo, who was in the running to return as director on Race 4, got his comments work against him. He had stated earlier after the audience dissed Race 3, that his comments regarding the film weren’t taken into account and he was also left to work around the edges of the script without getting to run the show.
As quoted by a national tabloid The Hindu, a source said “Remo was constantly ‘directed’ by Salman Khan during the shooting of Race 3. In fact the entire cast including Anil Kapoor took directions from Salman. Remo could feel the project going out of control. But there was nothing he could do about it. When Salman Khan takes charge you either comply or you leave.”
This isn’t the first time similar allegations have been made against Salman. The report goes on to mention that director Kabir Khan, with whom Salman had collaborated on three films, chose never to work with him again after their third, Tubelight, was poorly received.
Remo was slated to direct Salman again in a dance-action film, but there has been no update on the status of that project.
