In his brief tryst with Bollywood so far, Prabhu Deva has worked with experienced actors like Salman Khan (Wanted) and Akshay Kumar (Rowdy Rathore). Naturally, it was all about collaboration which didn't involve any coaching whatsoever. However, for his first Hindi film where he is working with a debutant actor, Girish Kumar, Prabhu had to change his entire approach and work with the youngster for a good year and a half before calling the shots.
"To launch Girish, who is producer Kumar Taurani's son, Prabhu Dheva was signed close to three years back. While Girish worked on himself for almost a year, the director decided to have an audition for him. Girish performed on a few scenes and also a dance number. Though Prabhu Dheva loved what he saw, he instinctively knew that there were rough edges that had to be worked upon,"
