In 2009, Prabhu Deva made his directorial debut in Bollywood with Wanted. The Salman Khan-starrer was a huge hit and then in 2010 he made another superhit Rowdy Rathore with Akshay Kumar. Both of them were action films. Now, his third directorial venture in Bollywood is a musical love story with newcomer Girish Taurani, son of producer Kumar Taurani of Tips.
"It is a challenge to work with a newcomer. And I am doing this film from my heart and because I liked the subject. It was a good experience," Prabhu Deva told PTI. The director feels it is a challenge to work with newcomers because they are fresh and new and have to be trained in every department.
The film, titled Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya, will have Girish and Shruti Hassan in the lead. "It is a love story, feel good subject. It is a romantic-comedy-musical film," he said. On why is the film titled Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya, Prabhu says, "Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya means - Ram will you come - and it is also a famous song. My hero's name is Ram, so it is a perfect title." Produced by Tips, the film is scheduled to release in June.
