Highlights

  1. "He is hard-working and comforting," said Prabhu Deva
  2. "He's a lot like Rajinikanth sir," he added
  3. "They both have an innate style," he said
"Salman Khan is a lot like Rajinikanth," Prabhu Deva told mid-day. Prabhu Deva has worked with both the 52-year-old superstar and 67-year-old megastar in his career as a filmmaker, choreographer and actor. Prabhu Deva, who is best known as a choreographer and much loved for the films he has helmed, will be directing Salman Khan in the eagerly anticipated Dabangg 3. Prabhu Deva has also worked with the Thalaivaar in Enthiran - he was the choreographer and also made an appearance as a dancer in Rajinikanth's 2002 Tamil film Baba. Ahead of the release of Prabhu Deva's Action Jackson, it was also said that the film may have been inspired by Rajinikanth's Baashaa as a tribute to the Thalaivaar.

Talking about his hero in Dabangg 3, Prabhu Deva told mid-day: "He is hard-working and comforting. One will want to have a conversation with him about anything. He's a lot like Rajinikanth sir. They both have an innate style, one that is unique and appealing. He never makes an effort to impress anyone, but we're mesmerised nonetheless."

Prabhu Deva shared an updated about Dabangg 3 and said promised plenty of action in the film: "We should take the project on floors soon. It's going to be an out-and-out Salman Khan film. There will be a lot of action," mid-day quoted him as saying. "I know it is a big film, and there is a challenge before me, but I am not one to succumb under pressure. I feel the pressure only when the film has hit screens, while noticing how viewers react to it," he added.

Comments
Dabangg 3 will see Salman Khan return to play the feisty cop Chulbul Pandey while Sonakshi Sinha will feature as his wife Rajjo.

Arbaaz Khan, who plays Chulbul Pandey's brother in the Dabangg series of films (which were huge box office hits) will take the producer's role yet again for the third part. Salman Khan is expected to wrap filming Race 3 this month and begin shooting Dabangg 3 in July. Salman was last seen in Tiger Zinda Hai while Rajinikanth will next be seen in gangster drama Kaala.
