Get Well Soon, Remo, “He’s Doing Fine,” Says Friend Ahmed Khan



We are not close friends. But I’ve  known Remo d’Souza  for  many many years. He  is  cordial , gentle warm  and  polite. The heart  attack at the  age of  46 comes as a  surprise. As  his  dear friend  Prabhudheva   told me, Remo leads a completely disciplined life. No late  nights,  no heavy drinking,  no excesses  of any kind.Plus, of course he is as fit as  can be,  thanks to all the dancing.

  Remo  is also a  guy who  stays  away from stressful  situations.When some  time  ago he was caught in a sticky situation with a   superstar he hastily withdrew from the royal coterie  of  the star, preferring to  do his own thing,  make his own  film rather than bend backwards  to please  the big stars.

I spoke  to   choreographer-director Ahmed Khan  about Remo. “He is  fine ,thank you for asking. I  couldn’t believe  it when I heard  he  had a heart attack. He had an angiography  and  he’s doing  well. I was there at the hospital  for an  hour. But I didn’t go inside to see him. This goddamned Covid  has made human contact so difficult. Anyway his  wife there to take  care  of him. Hopefully he’ll be home soon.”

Ahmed  got misty-eyed  talking  about Remo.   “We’ve known one  another for twenty years. He started  his career as a choreographer with me . We don’t meet or talk every day. But the bonding is  there. When something  like this happens it just shakes  you. There is no certainty  about life.”
