Prabhu Deva - Tamil Actors

Prabhu Deva  is an award-winning Indian dancer, choreographer, actor and film director. He has been called "India's Michael Jackson" for his fast-paced dance movements, though he has given performances in a wide range of dancing styles.   He has won a number of awards for his elaborate dance sequences, including two National Awards for Best Choreography, a Filmfare Best Choreography Award, and a Filmfare Best Choreography Award (Telugu). He has also won a Best Director award for the film Pokkiri.   Prabhu Deva was inspired by his father, Mugur Sundar (known as Sundaram Master), who was a dance master for popular South Indian movies. He took dancing as his career and passion, learning Indian dance forms such as Bharatanatyam as well as Western styles.   Prabhu Deva's first movie as a dance director was Vetri Vizha. He has since choreographed over 100 movies. Before starting as a full-time actor, he appeared as a background dancer for a song in the Tamil film Agni Natchathiram.   His first role as a hero was in Indhu (1994) with actress Roja. Deva's success resulted largely from his dancing. In 1999, Deva, Shobhana and A. R. Rahman performed with a Tamil cinema dancing troupe at the "Michael Jackson and Friends" concert in Munich, Germany.He has a significant fan following in the Tamil, Telugu and Kannada film industries.  < Read less Read more >
