I am realising my dream: Prabhu Deva

Prabhu Deva finally returns to acting in Kollywood after a long gap.

Choreographer/actor/filmmaker Prabhu Deva finally returns to acting in Kollywood after a long gap, although he did the ABCD series in Hindi recently. Though his long pending project Kalavadiya Pozhdhugal with Bhoomika Chawla is yet to see the light of day, Prabhu is excited about his new venture, a trilingual in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi, which is yet to be titled. Produced by his recently-launched banner Prabhu Deva Studios, an interesting aspect is that Tamannaah is acting alongside the Action Jackson filmmaker for the first time. Sonu Sood also essays a vital character in the movie.

Directed by A. L Vijay, the film’s shooting started ten days back in the buzzing town of Wai in Satara district near Pune. Manu Nandan of Happy New Year fame is the man behind the camera. Speaking to DC from Mumbai, Prabhu Deva says, “This time, I am restricting myself to acting. It is Vijay who calls the shots. I’ll be featuring in a thriller movie for the first time. In fact, it is my long-time wish to direct a suspense thriller, but I am realising my dream this way!”

We hear that he have a total makeover for this film, including a change in the trademark beard. He laughs and says, “The beard is very much there, but with a different style. But yes, Vijay wanted me to sport a totally different look and they have given me a new hair style, and even my costumes are unusual.” Though he did not say anything about him sporting contact lenses, our sources confirmed that he would be.

Heaping praise on Vijay Prabhu adds, “It is not a regular kind of a movie. Vijay’s characters are well-sketched, and presenting a flick to suit three different languages is not an easy task.” Delving deeper, he explains, “The story is happening in Mumbai and hence most part of the film will be shot in Mumbai itself.” Tamannaah, who shares the screen with PD, quips, “I am excited as well as nervous. Everyone knows about the great dancing abilities of Prabhu Deva sir. My only worry is matching him in dancing!”
