An Indian film Choreographer, stage dancer, actor and director Prabhu Dheva Family Rare Photos. He Known as Indian Michael Jackson. Prabhu Dheva was inspired by his father, Mugur Sundar, a choreographer for South Indian movies, and took up dancing learning Indian classical dance forms such as Bharatanatyam from Dharmaraj and Udipi Lakshminarayanan as well as Western styles. Raju Sundaram and Nagendra Prasad are his brothers.
Prabhu Deva first appeared as a background dancer for a song in the 1988 Tamil film Agni Natchathiram. Deva’s first venture as a choreographer was Vetri Vizha (1989). He has since then choreographed in over 100 movies. From choreography, he went into acting. His first film as an actor was Indhu (1994) with actress Roja. In 1999, Dheva, Shobhana and A. R. Rahman performed with a Tamil cinema dancing troupe at the “Michael Jackson and Friends” concert in Munich, Germany. He acted alongside his brothers in the movie One Two Three. As of 2010, he serves as chairman and director of the Prabhudheva’s Dance Academy in Singapore. He planned to release his first video album called It is boring in 2013. He also played the lead role in ABCD (Any Body Can Dance), the first 3D dance film in India.
Prabhu Dheva married Ramlath who converted from Christianity to Hinduism and changed her name to Latha; they had three children – their eldest son (Basavaraju/Vishal) died of cancer in 2008.
During the making of the film Villu in 2008, there were reports that he and actress Nayantara fell in love on the sets with some reports even claiming that he married her secretly in June 2009. She had tattooed his name on her wrist and began appearing with him in public, while neither denying nor confirming the relationship. In September 2010, Prabhu Dheva openly confessed his love for Nayantara and further stated that he would marry her soon. The issue gained media attention and turned into a controversy, since Prabhu Dheva was not divorced from Ramalath. Prabhu Dheva publicly claimed that his marriage to Ramalath was invalid; he privately wed Nayantara after she underwent conversion to Hinduism.
Unwilling to grant a divorce, she filed a petition at the family court, seeking directions against her husband and Nayantara marrying, attending functions together and receiving awards as husband and wife, and requesting a reunion with him. Furthermore, Ramalath threatened to go on hunger strike if Prabhu Dheva married Nayantara, while several women’s organizations conducted protests against Nayantara for bringing disrepute to Tamil culture, burning an effigy of her. In 2012, Nayantara confirmed that she had ended her relationship with Prabhu Deva. Prabhu Dheva has moved to Mumbai and is residing at Boney Kapoor’s old place in Green Acres.
