Prabhu Deva’s career as a director in Bollywood has got a commendable recognition with the highly acclaimed Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Bhansali signing him to direct a film that will be produced by him.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is the man behind some path breaking Hindi films like Black, Devdas and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
Speaking about the big climb Prabhu Deva has said that he has always loved the films of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and was moved by the humility of the big man when he was in Chennai to discuss the film some time ago.
Prabhu Deva said he has agreed to do the movie now and he will start the film after his Tamil film ‘Engeyum Kadhal’ starring ‘Jayam’ Ravi hitting the screens. Akshay Kumar will be the hero and the heroine may be Akshay’s lucky charm Katrina Kaif. Prabhu Deva also has a Tamil film to do for GK Film Corporation which has Vishal as the hero.
Prabhu Deva’s last Hindi film ‘Wanted’ was a huge hit and it resurrected the slumping career of Salman Khan. While ‘Wanted’ was a remake of his Tamil hot ‘Pokkiri’, the proposed film will be an original script they say.
