Prabhudheva is now gearing up to begin his film with Girish (Kumar Taurani's son) which would be the actor's launch pad.
Even though the director is all excited today, there were detractors who had threatened to spoil the party for him en route the release of his last blockbuster 'Rowdy Rathore'.
While the response was all around positive for the Akshay Kumar starrer, there were few who accused of him being plain and simple happy by merely churning out 'masala' entertainers that were so called no-brainers.
"I have to take this all in my stride", he says, "I have faced bouquets and brickbats during my dancing days as well. If someone said that I was dancing well, I used to thank him. On the other hand if someone accused me of repeating myself, I used to do something different to impress them. Perhaps they were correct in their judgement but then who am I to challenge their opinion."
Seems he is being a little too diplomatic, especially so when he has so many in Bollywood lining up to work with him.
"It is not about being diplomatic; it is about acknowledging someone's point of view", he continues in the same mode.
Guess he may open up a little more once he is through shooting for his current film, gets started on his action drama with Shahid Kapoor and then also directs a film with Ajay Devgn next year.
After all who wouldn't like to see the kind of flamboyance in him that his lead protagonists bring alive on screen.
