The poster of the third installment of ABCD is out and the film has been titled as Street Dancer 3D. Initially, the producers of the film went ahead and registered a title with the producers’ association as #3, which is what they have used in the posters of the film and in announcements on social media.

But why can’t they name it ABCD 3? Well here is the reason: The first instalment of Any Body Can Dance (ABCD) was produce by UTV. The second part was bankrolled by Disney after they took over UTV. “Therefore, the copyright of ABCD is not with Bhushan Kumar and Remo D’Souza completely. They need to pay a whopping sum of money if they need to take over the rights and that is only if Disney wants to part with them. In the case of the Anurag Basu directed Life… In A Metro sequel as well, the rights were with UTV and then passed on to Disney after the acquisition,” says a trade source.
