Ace choreographer-actor-filmmaker Prabhudheva said he would love to choreograph a song in Chiranjeevi-starrer Khaidi No. 150. Denying reports that he has been roped in to choreograph, Prabhudeva said, “I haven’t been approached yet. But if they do, I would love to take up the offer. Chiranjeevi is one of the best dancers in the country and it would be fun to work with him.” Prod him about the secret to his fit physique, and pat comes the reply: “I’m a vegetarian and I don’t eat anything after seven in the evening. I also have full control over my mind, and it’s been the way since I started off and I believe it reflects on my body.”
Asked if being part of masala films is tough, Prabhudheva, said, “To do the film is tough, but it’s fun to be in commercial films.” Known for his flexible and unique dance moves, the 43-year-old star agrees that the scope of dance in terms of choreography is shrinking. “I think so (the scope of dance in terms of chorography is shrinking). More of stories is there (in songs). I don’t see many people dancing and all. I have seen very good dancers not dancing much. I don’t why,” said Prabhudheva.
With new generation of actors like Tiger Shroff, Varun Dhawan and Sushant Singh Rajput coming well-prepared to the industry as far as their dance skills are concerned, Prabhudeva feels it is a help but not something mandatory. “It (dance) will be helpful. It is not mandatory, but it will be a plus point (for them).”
The ace choreographer, whose next Bollywood outing is Tutak Tutak Tutiya, rated Tamannaah as “very good” with her dance, he said Sonu was “okay”. While shooting a song for the movie, Prabhudheva had suffered temporary paralysis due to a severe muscle pull. Does he plan to slow down ? “Of course, I will slow down after 60,” quipped the multi-faceted 43-year-old, who has directed films like Rowdy Rathore, R… Rajkumar, Singh Is Bliing, Action Jackson and Ramaiya Vastavaiya.
