Actor Amitabh Bachchan wished dancer, choreographer and filmmaker Remo D’Souza a speedy recovery on Twitter. The ace choreographer suffered a heart attack on Friday.
Retweeting a throwback video clip, shared by a fan, Amitabh wrote: “.. get well Remo .. prayers !! and thank you for your wishes.” In the clip, Remo was seen praising a performance by a team of participants in a popular dance reality show, co-judged by Shilpa Shetty. In it, Remo said he had always been a big fan of Amitabh and a popular dialogue from Deewar by the veteran actor was always a memorable one for him. He also complimented the team for recreating the said dialogue and added that after Amitabh’s rendition of it, their performance would be etched in his memory for all times to come. The participants thanked him for the compliment.
In a tweet preceding this particular one, the team of dancers were seen recreating the scene from Deewar. Sharing it, Amitabh wrote: “ufffff .. aur kya keh sakta hoon main !!”
