Prabhu Deva, happy birthday

The actor-director-choreographer turns 40 today

Prabhu Deva was born on April 3, 1973, and it’s a milestone birthday for him today. The versatile entertainer – who juggles acting, direction and choreography with amazing flair – certainly seems to be in a good place as far as his work is concerned. Last year, he focused mainly on Bollywood, acting in Any Body Can Dance (ABCD), choreographing for OMG: Oh My God! and directing the Akshay Kumar-starrer Rowdy Rathore, for which he also choreographed.

Prabhu Deva, the fabulous dancer, has come a long way since his early days. His foray into choreography was in the late ’80s when he worked on Vetri Vizha in Tamil and in Telugu films such as Anjali and Lorry Driver and, later Pratibandh in Bollywood. He was also roped in by Mani Ratnam for the classic, Thalapathy starring Rajinikanth and Mammootty. His choreography has won wide acclaim and he’s received two National Awards for best choreography for Minsara Kanavu and the Hrithik Roshan-starrer Lakshya.

Prabhu Deva also made for an unusual but endearing star in films such as Kaadhalan, Raasaiya and Vaanathai Pola. In 2005, he plunged into direction with Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana which went on to become a huge success. Since then, he’s notched up hits like Pokkiri, Shankardada Zindabad, Wanted and Rowdy Rathore. No wonder then that he’s got his hands full with big projects through 2013 and into the next year as well. There’s Rambo Rajkumar starring Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha, plus three untitled projects planned with Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn-Deepika Padukone and one with Arshad Warsi.

Here’s wishing the super busy and super talented Prabhu Deva a very happy birthday!
