Prabhu Deva debuted as a director in Bollywood with film Wanted, and its runaway success helped actor Salman Khan (right) turn over a new leaf in his professional career. Now, we hear that the choreographer-turned-director is planning to team up with the star for an action-packed drama, yet again.
Post Wanted, Salman hit bull’s eye at the box office with a slew of hit action dramas like Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard and Dabangg 2. “Now people want Salman to do only action. It may be an action film with Salman. The story and the script have not been locked yet, so I can’t comment on it,” shares Prabhu.
Tell him that he is the man responsible for bringing Salman’s career back on track, and he says, “I don’t take the credit at all. If not me, someone else would have directed him. He has a huge fan following.”
Ask him if action is his favourite genre, and he says, “People accepted me as a action film director, but I am more romantic director as I am a choreographer first, so with dance, romance comes naturally.”
In fact, his next directorial venture Ramaiya Vastavaiya, starring Girish Taurani and Shruti Haasan, is a romantic movie. Post that, he is scheduled to shoot with actor Ajay Devgn, who is also known for his roles in action films.
