Dancing sensation Prabhu Deva and Bollywood star Salman Khan may do a jig together in upcoming film Wanted Dead And Alive.

"Though Prabhu's brother Raju Sundaram will be the official choreographer, I'm sure Prabhu will make a token appearance as a good-luck charm," Boney Kapoor, who is producing the film, told IANS.

"We started shooting from July 21 with two songs in Bangkok. The rest of the film will be shot in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai," he said.

Wanted Dead And Alive is a remake of the Telugu hit Pokhiri, which revolves around an undercover cop who works for a mafia don.

Prabhu Deva, who directed the original, is wielding the megaphone for the Hindi remake too. Ayesha Takia is playing the female lead in the film.

"But we're completely taking out the Telugu aspect of the theme. In spirit Pokhiri and its remake will remain the same. But in treatment the two films will be as different as Salman and Mahesh Babu, who played the main lead in the original," Boney explained.

This is Prabhu Deva's first Hindi directorial venture. Any apprehensions?

"Not really. I've known Prabhu from the time he choreographed and danced with Madhuri in the number Que sera sera in Pukar. I know what he's capable of," the producer said.
