Remo D'Souza had suffered a heart attack and had been rushed to the Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai. He is currently admitted in the ICU. He has reportedly undergone angioplasty surgery. His friend, student Dharmesh Yelande had been at the hospital throughout. In an interview with ETimes, he spoke about Remo D'souza's health and current condition. He said, "Yes the news is true. Remo sir is fine now, he is doing well. We all are at Kokilaben Hospital with him. He had to go through a surgery and everything is fine. We are not allowed inside but we are constantly in touch with his wife Lizelle D’Souza over calls. Remo sir’s health is fine now." Dharmesh Yelande is one of the captains of Dance Plus which is judged by Remo D'souza.
Earlier, Remo D'souza's wife Lizelle D’Souza confirmed the news to The Indian Express and said, "It was a blockage. Doctors have done angiography. He is in the ICU. Please pray. Next 24 hours are very important.” A few time back, Remo D'souza had said that he is keen to make a film on Saroj Khan, and he says its was the late choreographer's wish. In an interview with IAN, he said, "We had a long conversation and she said, "kabhi mere upar biopic koi banaye, to tu hi banana, kyunki tu dance aur struggle do hi samajhta hai (if someone were to make by biopic, you do it because you know the struggle as well as dance'."
Recalling his special memory of the late choreographer, Remo replied: "There is not one specific incident that I can recall and say as 'this is a special memory' that I have of Saroj ji, because she has seen me grow from a struggler to the choreographer I am today. But I have to say that in the last few years, we came closer and I feel fortunate that I worked with Saroj ji in her last work, the 'Tabah ho gaye' dance number in the film 'Kalank'. For her, it was about uniting with her favourite Madhuri (Dixit) ji and I was happy to assist Saroj ji. I was handling the technical aspect of the dance."
