I get more offers for direction: Prabhudeva

Mumbai: Choreographer-actor-director Prabhu Deva, who will next be seen acting in `ABCD - Any Body Can Dance`, says he receives more offers for direction but loves choreography the most.

"I get more offers for direction than acting. I don`t receive offers for acting... Everyone takes me as a director... Which I think is good. It is not that I am not keen on acting. If I am comfortable and I like it then I take up acting. It is not that I won`t be acting," Prabhu told reporters.

"I did choreography, direction and acting. Everything is a part of my job. But I love doing choreography more than anything," he said.

Prabhu is not actively seen acting in Hindi films, but has made cameo appearances, especially in songs. He was last seen in a special appearance song in Akshay Kumar`s `Oh My God` and `Rowdy Rathore` last year.

As far as acting in films is concerned, Prabhu believes he should feel comfortable enough to act.

"I think I should feel comfortable to do the role, the film. And then I should have time as I have choreography and direction work as well," he said.
Prabhu, who has been wooing the audience with his fine and flexible dance skills, says, "My first passion is choreography. Presently I am busy with direction, if I am free and if someone needs me I will do it (choreography)," he said.

Considering that he would be acting in Remo D`Souza`s upcoming 3D dance film `ABCD`, Prabhu did not have to be a choreographer.

"This is not my first film as an actor. In every Indian film dance is an essential part, there are choreographers. So I did not have to hold myself in the area of choreography. When I am acting I am just acting and nothing else," he said.

`ABCD - Anybody Can Dance` stars Prabhu and Ganesh Acharya in key roles, while some contestants of reality show `Dance India Dance` also essay central characters.

The film will release on February 8.
