Whom according to you are the best dancers in Tolywood, Prabhu Deva replied, “I have done films with Chiranjeevi, Balakrsihna, Nagarjuna, Venkatesh, Mohan Babu and Rajasekhar. As a choreographer, we read how much they are capable off and compose the moves based on their body language. Everyone used to have their own style. I feel, anyone can dance if they have the interest. Though I was just 15-16 years old, all of my heroes used to respect me and they gave me the opportunities to prove my talent. I wholeheartedly thank all of them”.
He then added, “Chiranjeevi sir is superb. He is the king of hardworking. In those days, he used to call me for rehearsals in the evening and would dance before me by feeding me with yummy dosas made in his house. He is a complete package – acts well, has got a style and could dance like a dream. Among the young crop of heroes, Allu Arjun, Jr NTR and Ram Charan have been doing a fantastic job.”
Prabhudeva began his career as an assistant to his father and choreographer Sundaram Master at the age of 14 and within one-and-a-half year he became a dance master. Out of 100 films he had choreographed till date, 80 were in the Telugu Film Industry and that’s the reason behind his close bonding with the Telugus.
