Larger than life dance sequences

Despite being surrounded by controversies, actor, film-maker and ace dancer Prabhu Deva only wants to focus on his career. He has choreographed for around 100 movies like ‘Don — The Chase Begins Again’ (2006), Enthiran (2010) and Engeyum Kadhal (2011) and is often referred to as the Michael Jackson of India.

This year, the 39-year-old is all set for a series of releases, including the country’s first 3D dance film, ‘Any Body Can Dance’ (‘ABCD’), with other choreographers.

Ask him why ‘ABCD’ is a revolutionary film and he says, “It is India’s first 3D Hindi dance movie. Though Lauren Gottlieb from ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ is also a part of the movie, there is no heroine. I play the lead.”

What are the challenges of making a 3D movie in India? “It takes double the time and the technique is different. There are no pauses and cuts and objects placed in a room have to be in the right place, be it a table or a chair. Every scene has to be approved by a specialist before we proceed to the next scene. If necessary, we even have to re-shoot the entire scene. For instance, if a small fly enters the scene, it looks big on screen,” he exclaims. 

Prabhu Deva is also busy with the promotions of his directorial ‘Rowdy Rathore’. Starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha, the film will hit the screens soon.
