Prabhu Deva has gone on record saying that though he has donned the hats of an actor, producer and director, it’s dancing which gives him the ultimate satisfaction to his soul. The national award-winning choreographer has become one of the most sought-after directors in Bollywood these days.
“Dancing fills my soul with satisfaction; acting and directing films came along the way. I have managed to learn a few tricks in both these departments,” says Prabhu Deva. “Dance runs in the blood as my father is a great dancer and I was brought up in an atmosphere where acquiring dancing skills was viewed as the primary objective to be achieved by an individual.
“I grew up watching my father and then became a choreographer myself. Then came the one-song numbers after which I became a full-fledged hero. After spending many years as an actor, I started directing films. Though directing films has become my full-time profession now, I always love to appear before my fans on-stage and on-screen in song sequences as a dancer.
“Many unwanted things happened in my life in the past which I don’t want to remember at all. I am thankful to the Almight to have put me in a comfortable situation in my profession and to have allowed me to take care of my children who are my lifeline,” concludes Prabhu Deva.
