After directing two action movies for Bollywood namely 'Wanted' and the forthocming action film 'Rowdy Rathore', Prabhu Deva now wants to make a horror film

"More than me, people want me to do action films only. Everybody tells me to do action films. But I would love to do horror films," he revealed.

A well-established choreographer and actor in the southern film industry and a successful director in Bollywood, the 39-year-old likes both the places and says that it's the team that is important more than anyting else.

"South or here, anywhere it is ok as long as the team is good. We can even do a Spanish film as long as we have a great cast and crew," he said.

He hit the bull's eye in Bollywood with the Salman Khan-Ayesha Takia starrer 'Wanted'. His next release is 'Rowdy Rathore', which features Akshay kumar and Sonakshi Sinha as the lead pair.

It is an out-and-out action movie and Prabhu Deva felt that Akshay suited the role perfectly. "I selected Akshay because the character is tailormade for him, you will see. It happens to be an action film and he is very good at it. It's great to work with him and he is a director's delight," said the director.

Talking about Sonakshi, he said, "Sonakshi is doing her second film, but it doesn't seem like that, it feels as though this is her 25th film - she is so professional and so good. Both Akshay and Sonakshi dance well. This is a bonus. Dancing also plays an intergral part in the film," he said. 'Rowdy Rathore' hits theaters on 1st June.
