Although we celebrate International Dance Day later this month, we believe India Dance Day should be celebrated today. Why? Because today is the birthday of Prabhu Deva, who is nothing less than the king of dance in India. The star turns 48 today. While we love every role he’s played in the industry – from actor to director, the world remembers Prabhu Deva for his mind-blowing dancing skills. It’s no secret that he has been dubbed the Michael Jackson of India. From a young age of 15, Prabhu Deva has choreographed songs for over 100 films in India. On her birthday, we decided to check out some of her amazing videos and dance to her tunes to mark her special day. Take a look at these seven songs we picked:
Tell us a song that’s better than this track. Prabhu Deva blew us away when he pulled off a Mr India dancing to the tunes of this number. These murderous movements are still difficult to recreate.
Bollywood may be recreating the song, but the choreography in this video is pure gold. From dancing on top of buses to driving on the roads, Urvasi Urvasi is an iconic track in Prabhudheva’s quarry.
Another gem of the star’s career, Prabhu Deva has Vadivelu by his side for Pettai Rap. Together, they delivered a breathtaking performance.
Prabhudheva released her magic dance performance with the help of Kajol in Chanda Re from the movie Sapnay. His dance moves in the film earned the actor-dancer a National Choreography Award in 1998.
Prabhudheva went completely retro for this one and set the scene on fire.
What Will Be:
What happens when two amazing dancers collaborate? You get a blockbuster like Que Sera Sera. The song, which stars our birthday boy and Madhuri Dixit, leaves us in awe every time we watch it.
Go Go Govinda:
Has anyone’s Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations ever been complete without this Oh My God number? The track is filled with a typical Prabhu Deva dance routine and it felt like we were back in the 1990s watching this song.
