Friday, July 06, 2007 India's own Michael Jackson, Prabhu Deva, is set to direct his first film with Salman Khan in the lead and may well join him in a dance sequence.
In the past Prabhu has only acted in and choreographed Hindi films though he has directed several Telgu films.
He won a National Award for Best Choreographer for the film Minsara Kanavu in Tamil and Lakshya in Hindi. Produced by Boney Kapoor, Wanted Dead And Alive will hit the floors on July 21 first in Bangkok, where two dance sequences will be shot, and then in locations at Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai. It is likely that Prabhu Deva, 34, will dance alongside Salman in the film, displaying the amazing agility, or what is left of it, that he was so famous for.
"Although Prabhu's brother Raju Sundaram will be the official choreographer for the song, I'm sure Prabhu will make a token appearance as a good-luck charm," Boney Kapoor told the Mumbai Mirror.
Wanted Dead And Alive is a remake of the Telugu hit Pokhiri.
