So far, he has had a successful innings at the BO, albeit with remakes like Wanted and Rowdy Rathore. However, Prabhu deva is now all set to direct an original action comedy with Ajay Devgn in the lead. And, he has approached Deepika Padukone to star opposite Ajay.
A source close to the project told Mirror, “Deepika Padukone has never worked with Ajay and Prabhu feels their chemistry is yet to be explored on screen. Also, Prabhu Deva always goes for unusual pairing. In his next, the hero will be a hardcore character while the heroine will be a soft and emotional character. Much like the Salman Khan–Ayesha Takia and Akshay Kumar–Sonakshi Sinha pairing in Wanted and Rowdy Rathore, respectively, which created quite a buzz.”
With Deepika Padukone currently shooting in Wai for Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express and Prabhu deva busy with the post-production of his film Any Body Can Dance (ABCD), both of them have ample time before they start shooting for Prabhu Deva’s next.
“Meetings have taken place but nothing is finalised yet. A decision will be taken soon,” added the source.
Deepika Padukone was unavailable for comment.
