Who let the cat out of the bag? Or rather, the song out of the private domain? The secretly-shot visual of the song that Prabhu Dheva choreographed for Akshay Kumar in Anthony D'Souza's Boss was apparently leaked out by someone on location who took unauthorized pictures, thereby upsetting the film's leading man and the team.
The premature announcement of what was meant to be a secretly shot song has greatly upset the choreographer and the entire team of the film. "Anyone would be upset, no?" reasons Prabhu Dheva. "So much care is taken over the marketing of a product these days. To have such a big song being leaked out so randomly is very upsetting."
Prabhu has now decided to ban all cell phones on the sets of all the films that he directs or choreographs. "We have to safeguard our product. If it gets out, it is likely to be duplicated."
As a choreographer he is now working very sparingly. Says Prabhu, "I'll only choreograph if a friend asks me. When Akshay requested me to do a song in Boss, there was no question of saying no. Akshay is a fantastic human being and a terrific dancer. I had a ball shooting with him in Rowdy Rathore. We shot the song for three days at Film City and that's it. My work is done."
Prabhu Dheva describes his tuning with Akshay as "out of this world". "I think he liked the movements I gave him in the 'Chinta Ta' song in Rowdy Rathore. We share a great tuning. Like me, Akshay is only concerned with his work. He doesn't waste time on useless gossip. For Akshay Kumar…anytime!"
