It's official! Prabhu Deva, the super-successful choreographer turned director, will direct a film for Sanjay Leela Bhansali. No, it wouldn't be a musical, but - hold your breath - an out-and-out action film. That's not all, Prabhu has also signed Amitabh Bachchan's home-production, which is expected to star Abhishek Bachchan in the lead.
"Well, I am in talks with various production houses," the media-shy Prabhu tells me, "But the first project to start will be produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. We hope to begin filming next year. In fact, a clearer picture will emerge in a week or two from now. Akshay Kumar will head the cast of this film."
What about the sequel to Wanted? "Oh, I would love to direct it and am also waiting for it to happen," he smiles. We are awaiting too!
