Mumbai: Remo D'Souza is set to embark on a multi-state tour as part of the promotional activity of his new film 'ABCD Anybody Can Dance' and perform their folk dances. With this, he hopes to revive the dying art forms.

"It will be a part of promotional activity. We will visit eight states and our motive is to revive the dying art forms of our country," Remo told us.

"We will be performing folk dances along with the cast of the film soon," he added.

The team of 'ABCD...' will perform Andhra Pradesh's Kollattam, West Bengal's Chhau, Goa's Tarangamel, Gujarat's Garba, Karnataka's Yakshagana, Madhya Pradesh's Tetali, Maharashtra's Pavri, Punjab's Bhangra and Rajasthan's Ghoomar.

The film releases on February 8 next year and Remo hopes the audiences will happily accept the new genre.
