      By Pti

      Mumbai, Feb 7 (PTI) Choreographer Remo D''Souza who makeshis debut as director with Vashu Bhagnani''s film "Faltu" saysthe transition was a natural progression for him.

      "I have done over 100 films and directed 1000 songs.

      Direction is one step ahead. A choreographer is the directorof songs. The only difference is that i am graduating fromdirecting a three minute part of the movie to a full fledgedmovie," he said at the digital launch of the film''s music heretoday.

      Speaking about the film, Remo who is currently judging"Jhalak Dikhla Ja" on Sony TV, said "Faltu" was a not just alove story, but about education system and coming of age ofthe young generation.

      He promised that the film will not be "faltu" as thetitle suggests but declined to elaborate on the title.

      "This was an idea myself and Jackky Bhagnani had inmind and I am grateful to Jackky''s father Vashuji for helpingus realise our dream," he added.

      He admitted that filmmaking was much tougher task thandirecting songs.

      "As a choreographer, I am just committing three days toshoot a three minute song, edit it and hand it over to thedirector. But, as a director, I am responsible for the entiremovie and this is what I am finding very challenging,"he said.

      Remo said he had directed a Bengali film and had won anaward for it.

      "since then I wanted to turn director,"he added.

      "Faltu" stars Riteish Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani, ArshadWarsi, Miss India Puja Gupta among others. .
