I’m going to become macho like Salman: Prabhu Dheva



So what if Salman Khan is ‘most Wanted’ after the success of ‘Wanted’, the film’s director Prabhu Dheva, too, is on seventh heaven, what with critics having given him his due, and box office records raking in the much wanted moolah. But Prabhu insists that the credit ought to be shared by all. “My actors – Salman Khan, Ayesha Takia, Mahesh Manjrekar, Prakash Raj… everyone did their jobs brilliantly. Producer Boney Kapoor didn’t leave any stone unturned; all the technicians behind the scenes, who made this plausible, a big thank you to them too,” says the humble Dheva, who is as happy as a clam.

So with the success of his Pokhiri re-make is it time to shift base to Bollywood? “Boney Kapoor thought I was able and gave me my first Hindi venture to direct. I’m glad it did well and gave him enough to smile about. I have a line-up of projects down South, but it’ll be fun to come and visit Bollywood now and then… as and when something interesting comes up,” said the director, actor.

Of course, Prabhu has moved on… “But shooting for ‘Wanted’ is an experience that’s going to remain with me,” he shares. And just what did he and Salman converse about? “I made Salman dance. He never thought he could do it, he still doesn’t believe that he did it… I told him he just had to. And he on the other hand suggested that I need to look tougher than I do, so next time I do an action flick, he has said that he’ll train me for it. So I’m going to become a macho man like him,” laughs Prabhu Devaa.

So while his career graph is sweeping upwards, love is in the air, too. Talks have it that South sensation Nayantara and he are quite an item. “No, that’s not true. There’s nothing like that… I don’t want to talk about it,” says the director, who is glad just basking in Wanted’s glory for the time being.

Five reasons to watch Salman Khan’s ‘Wanted’



Wanted Movies gives you five interesting reasons for not missing this Salman Khan-Ayesha Takia starrer.

Reason No 1: The first and the strongest reason is the fact that hot hunk Salman Khan will be seen in some awe-inspiring action sequences after a long time. It’s about time that the actor who is loved for his fit and fab body gets down to flexing some muscles and fights the baddies. With his killer attitude and some interesting dialogue delivery, watching Salman on the big screen will surely be a treat for his fans.

Watch out for dialogues like… ‘ Ek baar maine commitment kardi, uske baad toh main khud ki bhi nahi sunta…

Reason No 2: Prabhu Dheva is a noted choreographer and he has made Salman do some serious dancing in ‘Wanted’. One can clearly make out from the movie promos aired on TV that Salman has outdone all his previous dance performances. Buzz is that Prabhu has also incorporated some Michael Jackson style steps in the choreography.

Also, the songs from ‘Wanted’ like ‘O O Oh’, ‘Love Me Love Me’ and ‘Toh Se Pyaar’ are on top of the music charts. If you have been missing the combination of good songs and dancing from Bollywood movies, ‘Wanted’ is a film that you definitely can’t miss!

Reason No 3: The entertainment gets three times special with the special appearance of Anil Kapoor and Govinda in the power packed song ‘Jalwa’. The song video is already a treat to watch and with Salman, Anil and Govinda, it couldn’t have got better than this.

Reason No 4: ‘Wanted’, is choreographer-turned-director Prabhu Dheva’s Bollywood debut as a director. The film is a remake of the 2006 Telugu film Pokiri, directed by Puri Jagannadh. Later, Prabhu Dheva remade the film in Tamil with the same name. Adapted from a hit film, produced by Boney Kapoor, directed by Prabhu Dheva and starring Salman Khan in the lead, Wanted is sure to rock the box office.

Reason No 5: Incidentally, ‘Wanted’ is the first big film to hit screens after 3 long weeks of box-office duds. This is all the more reason for all you films starved buffs to go to the theatres and get your dose of Bollywood entertainment.

Wanted Dead or Alive..Salman khan’s new movie Speach



Salman khan in Wanted dead or alive.. first look.
Salman Khan, For his upcoming action movie, Wanted Dead or Alive, performed a dare devil fight sequence atop a building terrace in Mumbai.
A unit member told, “There was an action scene being shot on a specially erected set on a building terrace near Mumbai’s Mahalaxmi Race Course. The small set is actually shown as Salman’s character’s home in the film. Posing as a goon, Salman’s role is of an undercover cop out to destroy a mafia don’s empire in this Hindi remake of Telugu super hit Pokkiri. The action sequence had a rival gang’s members attacking Salman in his house.”

Hindi remake of Tamil hit Pokiri titled Wanted Dead And Alive tells the story of an undercover cop who works for a mafia don. His aim is to eliminate the gangsters by being a part of them.

Salman plays the lead role in the film. Ayesha Takia, Om Puri, Aseem Merchant and Mahesh Manjrekar are also among the cast.

The film is directed by Prabhudeva, who also directed the original. Music composer duo Sajid-Wajid has reportedly been roped in to compose the music.

Salman you have done the action all by yourself in WANTED. Are you satisfied with the final result?
I am quite satisfied, as I have gone through a lot of training for this film and have stretched myself a lot. May it be dancing or action, I needed the training, and the outcome of it has been good, according to me.

Politicians are blaming actors on going to any extent for the publicity of their film. What is your comment on that?
Sorry I could not hear you… (Ever-diplomatic Sallu just refused to answer this question)

What is the reason for taking up this film?
The reason for taking up WANTED was the script and the jazba of working hard in it. Now if the film does not work, then I will stop working hard. As I know I have worked hard for this movie and believe that this is one of the best.

Your characters name Radhe Mohan, is the same as it was in your previous film Tere Naam. What similarity do these two characters have?
In Tere Naam, Radhe was a college boy who was hit badly and he goes mad at the end, but here Radhe is a man and no body can even touch him, as it will be very easy for him to bury them underground.

Can you elaborate on your character in the film?
I essay the role of a contract killer in the film, and if somebody gives a supari on your name I will kill you also (grins).

Asin was originally cast in this film. What was the reason of replacing her with Ayesha Takiya?
We wanted Ayesha so we cast her in the film, and come on guys she was getting married too and so we were planning to release this film before her marriage. Asin got her share in London Dreams toh humne setting karli hai…

How different is this film from its Telugu version?
In this film there is humor, and different kind of action keeping in mind our audiences. It’s not the ditto copy of the Telugu version, but we have our own inputs too, which sets this film apart from the South movie.

This film has a lot of action and so did Ghajini, which was full with loads of action? So do you think this film will work on the same lines?
Ghajini worked not because of its action, but because of its romance. I have seen it and liked it also, but it was a different story altogether. This film is hero centric, and you will feel that I would like to be like Radhe Mohan after coming out of the theatre.

You have sung the song in WANTED. How was your experience?
It was like I was just dubbing some lines for the song, when suddenly the idea of singing the full song popped up in my mind. Sajid and Wajid took my voice to the studio, put some masala and presented it. So if you like the song you know the story behind my voice. (Laughs)
