Remo D’Souza’s next directorial, Street Dancer 3D, finished its final day of shooting on July 26.
The film’s stars — Shraddha Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Prabhudheva — clearly had fun on the sets.
Street Dancer 3D is the follow-up to 2015’s ABCD 2.
The film went on floors in February this year and is scheduled to release on January 25 next year.

Did you know Katrina Kaif was the original choice for the lead role but she opted out? Shraddha Kapoor later joined the cast.
‘Leaning on the right shoulder @remodsouza Paving the way’, Shraddha says about her director.
Shraddha shared this picture on Varun’s birthday (April 24) and wrote, ‘Happy birthday fellow Street Dancer!
‘@varundvn You’re an amazing friend, co actor and most importantly, a really nice person. Your good vibes are too contagious and you make everyone very proud.
‘Have the best birthday!!! Love you’
And this one on Valentine’s Day. ‘Happy Valentine’s Day! With love from us Street Dancers’
Varun’s inspiration, ‘Oh DEVA re DEVA aya PRABHUDEVA. The god of dance @prabhudheva #streetdancer3d. Very excited to work with this man again he’s someone I have always looked upto’
So, what’s different?
