His debut Hindi directorial venture, Wanted, was one of the earliest members of the Rs. 100 crore club, but Prabhu Deva says turning filmmaker was something that happened to him by chance. The 40-year-old actor-choreographer-director has a busy year ahead with four films including one with Salman Khan. “I love to work but yes it is a very busy time for me. Bollywood is treating me well. I have a couple of films lined up. I am doing one film with Ajay Devgn and another one with Salman,” said Prabhu Deva. The self-confessed action genre lover, also says he does not plan things in his life.
“I never planned to become a dancer but I became one. The same thing happened with acting and direction. I remember I was doing the choreography of a film and the producer came and offered me to direct the film. It was in Telugu and that is how it started.” And Prabhu is all set to direct his first Hindi romantic movie. titled Ramaiya Vastavaiya, that stars Shruti Haasan and Sonu Sood. “I was not getting romantic films after the success of my action films so I am happy to do this.”
