Remo D’Souza injured on ‘Dance Plus’ sets during finale shoot


Choreographer Remo D’Souza who was the ‘super judge’ of the dance reality show ‘Dance Plus’, injured himself on the sets while rehearsing for a performance for the finale of the show’s maiden season, which was aired last night (October 11).

Remo, who was rehearsing for his solo act with dancers Dharmesh and Dharmendra, lost his balance while trying to do a flip and hurt his back. He, however, returned for the final shoot.

"It was just a little imbalance but such things happen. The finale is today and the show must go on," Remo, director of dance-based film franchise ‘ABCD’, said in a statement. Despite the pain, Remo continued shooting before taking a break at 8 AM, but returned on the set at 10 AM to complete the shoot.

Meanwhile, Mumbai-based dance group V Company comprising of a huge troupe of 50 dancers won the first season of ‘Dance Plus’. They received the Dance Icon of 2015 trophy and walked away with Rs 25 lakh and a Mururi Suzuki Swift car.

Question Mark Crew was adjudged the first runners up and received prize money of Rs 10 lakh. Hardik Rawat and Poppin Ticko occupied the third and fourth place respectively. The four finalists also performed one last time in the final showdown before ‘super judge’ Remo announced the winner.

‘Dance Plus’ also featured dancers Shakti Mohan, Dharmesh Yelande and Sumeet Nagdev as the three mentors under whom the various teams/dancers participated. The winning team V Company was mentored by Dharmesh, while Sumeet was the captain of Question Mark Crew.

The finale episode also saw Remo reuniting with his co-judges Geeta Kapoor and Terence Lewis from a previous show. They joined the three mentors and danced to some popular songs and showed off their popular dance moves.

‘Dance Plus’ host Raghav Juyal, known for his slow motion dance also got to perform a duet on a medley of songs with Shakti with whom he had flirted the whole season.

Remo promised to return soon with the second season of the show on Star Plus.
