Prabhu Deva has been conferred with the Padma Shri honour by the Indian government for his ongoing splendid work in Indian cinema as a dancer, choreographer, actor and director. Prabhu Deva continues to be busy in Tamil and Hindi cinema, as an actor - director. He is gearing up for the release of his Tamil films like Devi 2 (set for an April 12th release) and Pon Manickavel. He already had Charlie Chaplin 2 released in February; Nikki Galrani had shared the screen space with him in this comedy entertainer which had the mega chartbuster folk duet song 'Chinna Machan'.
Nikki expressed her absolute delight at her co-star’s latest moment of glory, “I’m very happy for master. I think he deserves all of it for being so hard working & dedicated towards his work. He has committed most of his life to his work. Of course, he is such a proven all rounder. When I worked with him in Charlie Chaplin 2, my biggest learning from him was to be patient and give my 200% in all that I do, with complete honesty.”
Prabhu Deva will also be directing Bollywood superstar Salman Khan in Dabangg 3, the shoot of which is set to begin next month. It must be noted that ‘Rowdy Baby’, the Maari 2 song video that he choreographed recently has gone on to smash all existing online records and is nearing a mind-boggling 300 million views! We wish Prabhu Deva more and more laurels in the coming years.
