They dance at weddings, at parks and at the beach. With dance being such a big part of Bollywood films, a dance-off was bound to happen someday. It did – with ABCD: Anybody Can Dance in 2013, and now director Remo D’Souza is back with a sequel. Starring heartthrob Varun Dhawan and the babelicious Shraddha Kapoor, you’ll see the couple bhangra-ing, swivelling and shaking their booty – not around coconut trees – but in Nevada’s canyons and valleys.

Step Up, step aside.

ABCD2 traces the bittersweet journey of an Indian dance troupe, a motley assortment of boys and girls who come from the backstreets of a Mumbai suburb. Pride comes before a fall and they attempt to seek vindication, glory and honour at, supposedly, the world’s biggest platform at a dance competition in Las Vegas. Surrounding the grandiose dance scenes is a plotline which will see ABCD2 travel to the Las Vegas Strip to find love, friendship, betrayal and redemption.

Is the world’s biggest dance platform really in Las Vegas? What’s the name of this dance competition? Well seriously who cares about facts and plotlines when all you want to see is hot people dancing?

The movie is already a big hit in India, where it has garnered more than Rs 28.81 cr (that’s a whopping S$6 million and more, baby) in box office sales within two days. And did you see that it’s backed by Disney?

By the way, Bollywood fans may have noticed that Varun Dhawan sported a Michael Jackson tattoo on his forearm sometime in April this year.

Is it for ABCD2? Absolutely. According to Bollywoodlife.com, director Remo D’Souza told the media that he has a Michael Jackson tattoo on his arm and he thinks that every dancer he knows has a tattoo which defines their dancing personalities. So Varun insisted on getting the same tattoo as Remo’s, to completely get into the character of Suresh in ABCD2.

Relax, Varun didn’t stain his beautiful, sculpted arms with permanent ink. He only sported it for the entire length of filming ABCD2.
