URROUNDED by controversies, Prabhu Deva is an expert at appearing calm.

He has choreographed around 100 movies like Enthiran (2010), Engeyum Kadhal(2011) and Don: The Chase Begins Again (2006) and is often referred to as the Michael Jackson of India.

This year, the 39-year-old is all set for a series of releases, including the country’s first 3D dance film, ABCD (Any Body Can Dance), with other choreographers.

There is also Rowdy Rathore with Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha and Kalavaadiya Pozhuthugal with Bhumika Chawla.

More from the actor and choreographer: What should we know about Rowdy Rathore? A commercial action movie, it is a remake of the Telugu film, Vikramarkudu.

Akshay Kumar is the hero and he plays two different roles.

As we know, Akshay has been an action hero and the role suits him.

And Sonakshi is a great dancer.

Why is ABCD a revolutionary film? It is India’s first 3D Hindi dance movie.

There is no heroine, though Lauren Gottlieb from So You Think You Can Dance, is also a part of the movie.

I play the main lead.

What are the challenges of making a 3D movie in India? It takes double the time and the technique is different.

There are no pauses and cuts and objects placed in a room have to be in the right place, even if it is a table or a chair.

Every scene has to be approved by a specialist before we proceed to the next scene.

If necessary, we will re-shoot the entire scene.

For instance, if a small fly enters the scene it looks big on screen! With the show,Ungalil yaar Prabhudeva dedicated to you completing almost 100 movies, where is dance headed in India? It is not just about TRP and entertainment, for such shows bring talent from small villages.

Before there was only one dancer known to people but with practice everyone can make those moves.

After Ranbir Kapoor in Chillar Party, are you open to doing an item number? I do not understand the concept.

When a guy does one song in the movie, it is a special appearance and when the girl does it, it becomes an item number.

But I am open to it.

Rowdy Rathore is scheduled relaease on June 1.
