Mumbai: Our desi Michael Jackson Prabhu Deva is likely to make a comeback
in Bollywood’s first-ever 3D dance film. And that’s not all! The film
will also star one of the girls from the popular Hollywood film series Step Up.
Briana Evigan and Sharni Vinson are vying for a spot in the untitled
film, directed by another ace dancer Remo D’Souza. “I have been
approached for the film, but nothing is confirmed yet,” is all that
Prabhu Deva is willing to let on at the moment.
However, a thrilled Remo says, “I’ve been a Prabhu Deva fan ever since
my teen years. When I wrote this story, I only imagined him in the film.
I wanted the best dancer for the film and who better than him. This is
my attempt to achieve something as big as the best Hollywood dance
A source adds, “The makers were considering roping in Briana (Step Up 2) or Sharni (Step Up 3D),
but to their surprise both the actresses have shown interest in the
film. Now the producers have to zero in on one of these hotties.” And
Remo reiterates, “Yes, we are talking to the Step Up girls. Let’s see
what works out.”
Composers Sachin and Jigar are working on the music of the film
(produced by UTV Motion Pictures), which is scheduled to go on the floor
by the end of this year. Prabhudeva is currently shooting his
directorial next Rowdy Rathore with Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha.
