According to Thankar Bachan, Prabhu Deva had originally shown interest in returning to acting and had even gone for the story discussions with Thankar Bachchan. Thankar had made the script based on a popular novel and Prabhu Deva had expressed his happiness in the script.
But later Prabhu Deva withdrew from the entire proposal stating that he was not interested in acting for the time being and that he wants to concentrate on direction again.
Thankar also confirmed the same and blasted Prabhu Deva for not keeping his word. Thankar said, "It is an unethical decision by the actor and he would learn a lesson for this act!"
