I’ll be trying a different look in the tri-lingual- Prabhu to abandon curly-hair look


The very talented and versatile Prabhu Dheva won’t be dancing with his co-star Tamnnaah Bhatia in the Hindi-Telugu-Tamil tri-lingual Abhinetri being produced by Prabhu Dheva along with Popcorn Entertainment.

More importantly the dancing star is undergoing a complete looks-makeover for this role. The trademark curly locks will be replaced by straightened hair. The casual look will make way for a more dapper, formal appearance.

Prabhu has taken time off from direction to produce and act in Abhinetri.

Says Prabhu, “I did act in Remo D’Souza’s ABCD 2 last year. But it’s been a while since I faced the camera in Tamil or Telugu. I’ve been busy directing films. But now I took three months off to act in this film.”

He says he had no choice. “I wanted a hero who didn’t charge money. I was the only one willing to do this film for free, since I am the co-producer.”

Prabhu says he was enthused to face the camera for this 3-language film for its uniqueness. “For the first time the director is attempting the horror-comedy genre in Hindi cinema. We haven’t really done a horror-comedy in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.”

Prabhu has a different team working with him on each of the 3 versions. “We shot the three separate languages as three separate films. Though Tammanaah, Sonu Sood and I feature in all three versions, the supporting cast of actors playing our friends and relatives is different in Tamil Telugu and Hindi. Each of three films is culture-specific, so no one watching the film in Hindi will say, ‘Yeh dubbed film lagta hai’ because it is not.”

The dancer-choreographer actor says he enjoys acting. “It frees me from the responsibilities that come with direction and choreography. After every shot I can breathe easy and relax.”

In fact for the first time Prabhu is attempting a new look on screen. “I’ve a new haircut, and a new wardrobe. I can’t recognize myself!”
