Difficult to bring freshness in action genre: Prabhu Deva
After giving two back-to-back hits in Bollywood, South choreographer-turned-director Prabhu Deva says filmmakers here want him to make action-masala movies but feels its difficult to try out new things in the same space.
Prabhu made his directorial debut in Hindi films with Salman Khan starrer 'Wanted' in 2009 which turned out to be a huge hit. Then he teamed up with Akshay Kumar for 'Rowdy Rathore' last year which went on to become a blockbuster.
"Everybody wants me to do action kind of films. It is ok. It is good that I am in demand. There are offers.. Talks are on but I can't talk about it. It is too early," Prabhu told .
On if he would continue making South kind of action masala films here, Prabhu said, "I don't know... If producers are liking it, audience are liking it then will have to do that even if I want to do some other films but I am like ok doing it (action films)."
The 39-year-old director says he has no clue how far action films will have a good run at the box office.
"I don't know how far will such action masala films run. I have no idea. The good part is this space (action-masala) is doing good why to introspect and research," he said.
Prabhu feels it becomes difficult to explore other things in a particular genre every time.
"It is very difficult to come up with new things in action genre. I try what all I can change and give something different, I try my best to do whatever I can in the same space. Also there are writers and others to help us so it is a team effort," he said.
Considering both his Hindi films did well, it seems Prabhu has understood the pulse of the Hindi film audience but he says today audience is smart and is ready to accept good films.
