Dabangg 3 With Salman Khan is Being Made… With Prabhu Deva as Director
Padma Shri Prabhu Deva gears up for ‘Dabangg 3’ even as he is busy with other films as an actor
The very talented and versatile Prabhu Deva can’t believe he has been awarded the Padma Shri by the government of India. “It is a most unexpected honour. I am very happy.” Prabhu Deva was honoured to be a Padma Awardee on India’s Republic Day, a few days ago.
However, there is no time for celebration as Prabhu Deva is facing the most intense rush hour of his career. “I have five different projects in Tamil as an actor in various stages of completion. And I’ve to finish all my work on them by March because that’s when I start shooting for Dabangg 3,” informs Prabhu Deva who has once again moved to Mumbai.
“I was in Chennai shooting for my Tamil films. But because of Dabangg 3, I’ve moved to Mumbai again. I now visit Chennai for a day, as I did recently for my son’s birthday. Otherwise, I am fully in Mumbai looking into the pre-production of Dabangg 3.”
Prabhu Deva feels like an outsider in the project. “Everyone associated with Dabangg has already done two films before. I am the newcomer in the franchise.”
It remains to be seen what Prabhu does with the franchise. “I am working hard to ensure Dabangg 3 turns out as effective as the previous Dabangg film. Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan have reposed a great deal of trust in me. I can’t afford to let them down.”
Prabhu is working round-the-clock to complete his work as an actor in the five Tamil films. “In a few days, I will be done. Then for the next one year, I will be thinking of nothing except Dabangg 3.”
In 2008 after a series of flops Prabhudheva brought Salman back into the reckoning with Wanted. Now it seems Prabhu will again succeed in eradicating the damage done by Race 3 in Salman’s career. Choreographer
