Prabhu Deva: People think I can’t make dance films

Prabhu Deva: People think I can't make dance films Prabhu Deva: People think I can't make dance filmsActor-choreographer-filmmaker Prabhudheva, who has directed action films like “Wanted” and “Rowdy Rathore”, says people find it hard to be convinced that he can helm a dance-based film.

“I’m ready, but they (people) do not believe that I can make dance films because I’m making more of action films and they feel I’m fit for action films only,” said Prabhudheva on the sidelines of an event for “Singh Is Bliing”.

“As a director, I’m comfortable with them (action), but ‘Singh is Bliing’ is different, so I’m comfortable with this also,” said the multi-faceted talent, who was part of dance film “ABCD 2”.

Prabhudheva’s action entertainers like “Rowdy Rathore” and “R…Rajkumar” are usually not considered serious by the audience and media. These don’t even get critical acclaim, but do decent to good business at the box office.

Regarding this, he said: “At least, somewhere something is better than nothing. It’s their (the critics’) right to tell it like that. I have to convince them also, so that’s my job, I’ll try my best.”

Having been involved with dance for almost three decades, he feels there are dancers who can make him feel inferior and uncomfortable — especially pointing at the dancers in “ABCD – AnyBody Can Dance” and “ABCD 2” — both of which saw Prabhudheva also act and dance.

“They’re extremely good and of international standards. So dancing with them was tough,” he said, and added that he also considers Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor, Tiger Shroff and Ranbir Kapoor as good dancers.
