Ace choreographer, actor and director Prabhudeva, known popularly as India’s Michael Jackson, who was last seen in the Pongal release Gulaebhagavali is all set to make his next on-screen appearance this week in Lakshmi directed by his Devi director AL Vijay, and co-starring the dusky beauty Aishwarya Rajesh and Ditya Bande.
These days, it has become a common phenomenon for actors to turn singers, and following actors like Kamal Haasan, Vikram, Dhanush and Simbu, Suriya and Karthi, Prabhudeva, who has so far not sung a single song in films, has turned a singer as well with this movie Lakshmi, that has music by Sam CS of Vikram Vedha fame.
As Prabhudeva spoke of the movie, he said “Lakshmi has been a dance-based movie, and has more importance for dance. I had rehearsed a lot to present unique dance moves in the movie, but Ditya Bande has danced very well than me, and her energy is in a whole new level. After this movie’s release, she will be widely spoken about. I have sung and danced for a song named Asaindhaai in the movie. though I have sung it like repeating dialogues. Singing in own voice and dancing had been a whole new experience”.
Prabhu Deva’s ‘Lakshmi’ will be hitting the screens this weekend and the team is promoting the movie extensively. However, the buzz around the movie is too low and there are no expectations around it right now. Maybe with good word of mouth, the movie might turn out to be a dark horse.
