“Reality shows have been a boon to most of the aspiring dancers and choreographers, as it goes without saying that, firstly it gives them exposure to showcase their talent. Then if you are good you get noticed and appreciated and work starts flowing in, Remo told IANS.

“Some of the older generation dancers and choreographers although they were good did not get exposure and they couldn’t make it,” he added.

Remo, who won the Best Choreography award for the song “Deewani Mastani" from the film Bajirao Mastani, at the 63rd National Film Awards earlier this year, has been choreographing songs for Bollywood films for over two decades now.

The auditions for Dance + season two are taking place across several Indian citis and towns. The show is hosted by Raghav Juyal, and will have Punit Pathak, Dharmesh Yelande and Shakti Mohan as mentors. Remo will be seen as the Super Judge.

The show will start in July and will be aired on Star Plus.
