(Prabhudheva who plays Vishnu)

Join Ster-Kinekor this weekend for the release of the high-energy Bollywood film, ABCD 2. This energetic 3D dance film from Disney promises to have audiences dancing in the aisles and singing along to the music, when it is screened at Ster-Kinekor's Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Durban on June 19.

ABCD 2 is the sequel to the popular 2013 film ABCD: Any Body Can Dance.

For Vishnu (Prabhudheva), widely regarded as India's best dancer, dance is more than a passion - it's the reason he lives. So, when he finds himself thrown out of the dance academy that he himself set up, by his manipulative business partner, it feels as if the oxygen has been sucked out from the air he breathes.

Heartbroken, Vishnu decides to give up dance and leave Mumbai. However, the night before his departure, he witnesses an amazing sight: a group of dancers preparing for the upcoming Ganpati Dance Battle, an annual festival that pits Mumbai's best dance groups against each other. Watching the raw talent of these amazing dancers helps Vishnu arrive at a decision - he will take this group under his wing, help them overcome their personal rivalries and past demons, and turn them into India's best dance squad!

As they travel to the vibrant city of Las Vegas to compete on the international stage, the film follows them on their bittersweet journey of love, friendship, betrayal, honour and redemption.

ABCD 2 also stars Varun Dhawan, Shraddha Kapoor, Prabhu Deva, Lauren Gottlieb, Pravin Bhosale and Sushant Pujari. The film is directed by Remo D'Souza and produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur and Walt Disney Pictures.
