Wanted was not the first choice of choreographer turned director Prabhu Deva as a debut directorial venture. In fact, Prabhu and Boney Kapoor had a romantic-comedy in mind before Salman insisted Prabhu to begin with an action-thriller and cast him in the main-lead.
Prabhu Deva goes down the memory lane and confirms, “Yes, I had decided to begin with romantic-comedy, but I was recommended to do an action-thriller by Salman Bhai." He goes on to add, “In fact, I did nothing, but kept my promise to Salman Bhai to cast him in my debut venture. I was over-whelmed by his sweet gesture to remind me. I could not refuse and went ahead with Wanted, which is remake of a Tamil film Pokiri."
Well, Prabhu, you are not the first one. Salman"s charming ways has mesmerized many a hearts! So, all we can say is all the best with Wanted.
