Now that Prabhu Deva is into direction, will we ever see him in front of the camera? Yes, he says. He is not striking out plans of acting in films. He has ABCD – Anybody Can Dance by Remo D’Souza in his kitty.
“Though the films based on dance have failed to do well in the country, I wanted to be a part of this because the dance sequences are really good in the film,” says the ace dancer.
He wants to act and direct simultaneously but he won’t star in his own directorial ventures. “I am not even comfortable choreographing for my own films. There are other people who can conceptualise the dance sequence. I do not mind giving inputs as a director but I will not interfere in a choreographer’s business and tax my brain for no reason,” he adds.
While on the professional front, he is quite busy, personally things aren’t going too well for him. After breaking up with longtime girlfriend, Nayantara, Prabhu Deva claims that he is “dating only films at the moment”. Will he start dating soon, we ask on a serious note. “It can happen anytime from now. Life is unpredictable and I can fall in love any time,” he quips.
His upcoming film reminds one of other action films like Wanted, Dabangg. “Now that Salman Khan has sported a moustache as Chulbul Pandey in Dabbang, does it restrict others from flaunting it? Appearances do not have a copyright,” he says. Why isn’t he working with Salman Khan next? “I can’t be doing all my films with Salman Khan,” he says.
For his Bollywood directorial ventures, will he stick to remakes only? “I am ready for everything. If original films leave enough for you to explore, remakes have a pressure of recreating the magic,” he says.
