One of the most noted choreographers and filmmakers of India, Remo D’Souza who has directed films like Race 3, ABCD 3 and Street Dancer 3D has been enjoying his successful life to the fullest. While Remo is at the top of his game right now, there was a time when he had to face a lot of biasness for his skin colour.

Remo often got enraged after he was subjected to racism from time to time. However, his mother became his biggest pillar of support for him. Whenever he would complain about colour discrimination to his mother, she humorously encouraged him.

He revealed that his mother used to sing the song of Mohammed Rafi – Hum Kale Hai To Kya Hua Dil Wale Hai from the 1965 film Gumnaam to make him feel better that eventually became his favourite one. And while giving them a befitting reply to the trollers, he shared the reel on the same song. Reno also disclosed that he used to hate when people used to call him ‘Kaalia’ or ‘Kalu’.

Take a look:

This is not the first time the popular artist faced criticism about his skin color. Earlier also Remo D’Souza opened up about the issue to a leading daily that he has faced racism and prejudice due to his skin color ever since his childhood. It is a subject that he has dealt with very closely and experienced whenever he traveled abroad. Everytime people used to call him by different names. So, Remo stated that he decided to work hard so that no one could ever call him with “those names again”.
