Today is the Birthday of one of the unparalleled multi talents ever in India, the one and only Prabhu Deva. More than two decades ago, he first appeared on screen as a group dancer in the songs ‘Rajadhi Rajan indha raja’(Agni Natchathiram) and ‘April Mayila pasumaiye illa’ (Idhayam) and the adolescent charmer instantly caught the eye of Tamil audiences.
He became a song choreographer in ‘Agni Natchathiram’ and set his own trend which catapulted him to the Number One choreographer in the country.
Prabhu Deva became a crowd puller with his solo dance numbers like ‘Lalakku Do dappi Ma’, ‘Chiku Buku Rayiley’ and ‘Chinna Rasave’ and the reception that he got from the audience prompted Shankar to cast him in the lead role in ‘Kadhalan’ and he soon became a National sensation and commanded a huge following for more than a decade.
Prabhu Deva the star started fading and people had all but written him off when he turned Director with the Telugu film ‘Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana’ and today Director Prabhu Deva is the highest paid in the country with every top notch hero waiting to work with him. Happy Birthday Prabhu Deva and we wish more and more entertainment from you for a long time to come.
