Dance Workshop Organizer Fakes Remo D’Souza

The Rajkot police have launched a search for the organizer of a dance workshop, who had promised classes by Bollywood choreographer Remo, but did not turn up after collecting nearly Rs 5 lakh as fees from the participants.

The man has been identified as Shailesh Trivedi, a resident of Popatpara, who runs a garment shop at Subhas Nagar.

The Malaviyanagar police on Wednesday questioned Mahesh Mehta and Nirmal Doshi, who were co-organisers of the 10-day workshop, about Trivedi’s whereabouts.

The police said Trivedi had published advertisements of the workshop in newspapers and put up hoardings, promising classes from Remo of Dance India Dance fame. The minimum fee charged was Rs 600 per person.

“Preliminary investigation has revealed that Trivedi had collected nearly Rs 5 lakh from about 500 students,” said an officer posted at the Malaviyanagar police station.

He added that the workshop had begun at the Grand Central Mall on May 10.

According to a complaint lodged by Shobhana Vithlani, mother of one of the participants, on the first day, the workshop was conducted by two choreographers from Mumbai, who were being introduced as assistants of Remo, who was expected to come on the last day.

But on the second day, neither the choreographers nor organizers turned up.

The police said Trivedi had recently invested in a Gujarati movie, adding that further investigation is on.

    I’m admittedly confused as to why anyone is still saying, “They should bring Dharmesh back.” He IS back – he’s on Little Masters! We just haven’t gotten to see him yet cause we don’t have our top 16.


    As in Rajkot it has happened in Nagpur also, there was some Mr. Kalol from Calcutta who had organized a Remo Dance workshop in Nagpur and had taken full fees from children and did only 5 days class and ran away.He gave his number as 9830462211 and when called he always gives fake reasons for not continuing the class. 😐
