Prabhu Dheva sees his life in a whirligig of hyper-activity these days. Think about it. He has just completed directing Salman Khan in Dabangg 3 and has already plunged into another project with the same leading man and for the same production house (Salman Khan Films).What is more, Salman plays a cop in both the films.
On a 2-day break in Chennai to meet his sons, Prabhu Dheva admits it is a challenge. “It has to be completely different character. Otherwise, audiences will say we are repeating. We are working on it. The target is Eid and we will make it on time. I work fast.”
Prabhu, who has been a favourite with Salman ever since they worked together as director and actor in 2009’s blockbuster Wanted, says Dabangg 3 is going to please the Salmaniacs. “It is a typical Salman Khan film. Doing a Dabangg film was a challenge to me. I was new to the Dabangg universe. Everyone else had done the first and second parts of Dabangg. Of course, I had seen both the earlier films. So I made an effort to get into the groove. Luckily for me, I didn’t fall flat.”
Because of the double commitment Prabhu doesn’t get to spend much time with his children. “I hardly get time to be with them. I enjoy working and I need to work to ensure their future. But, I also need time to be with them,” says Prabhu.
