"Talking in Hindi, it was like a test for me," the southern star said when asked what was tougher, dancing or acting.
Prabhudheva, 39, was speaking at movie's promo launch here Tuesday. The film is directed by choreographer Remo D'Souza, who reveals he started working on the script only after Prabhudheva said yes to the role.
"I only had an idea and I met Prabhu sir and said, 'Sir, I have an idea and I want you only. That's why I have come to you first and if you say yes, only then I'll start writing the script.' He instantly said yes after listening to the idea," Remo said.
"ABCD - AnyBody Can Dance" also features Kay Kay Menon and choreographer Ganesh Acharya besides dancers Dharmesh, Salman Yusuff Khan, Mayuresh Wadkar and Vrushali Chavan. It hits theatres Feb 8, 2013.
