Prabhu Deva debuted as a director in Bollywood with Wanted and its success turned over a new leaf in Salman Khan’s career. Once again the choreographer-turned-director is planning to team up with the star for an action-packed drama.
Post Wanted, Salman hit the bull’s eye at the box office with a slew of hit action dramas like Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard, Ek Tha Tiger 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 can’t comment on it,” Deva said.
The film will be produced by Tips Industries Limited.
It’s a known fact that Wanted success revived Salman’s career, but Prabhudheva refuses to take the credit.
“I don’t take the credit at all. If I would not have directed, someone else would have directed him. He has a huge fan following.” he said.
His other Hindi film – “Rowdy Rathore” – was also an action drama, but the director said: “People accepted me as a action film director, but I am more romantic director as I am a choreographer before so with dance romance comes naturally.”
In fact, his next directorial venture “Ramaiya Vastavaiya”, starring Girish Taurani and Shruti Haasan, is a romantic movie. It is slated for a July 19 release.
