Choreographer-turned-actor Salman Yusuf Khan, who is making his silver screen debut with Remo Dsouza's "ABCD - Any Body Can Dance", says working with Prabhu deva was a dream come true.

"Working with Prabhu deva has been a dream-come-true kind of experience for me. He has a peculiar charm. He was there as a friend, companion, teacher and supported all of us on the sets. He has been wonderful," Salman told IANS.

Salman says he has grown up watching Prabhu deva and every moment that he shared with him during the making of the film has been special.

"Every moment with him on the sets was special. I used to nag him for everything. I have grown up trying his 'Muqabla' song step, but never got it right. So when I asked him he taught me the technique to do it and did not let me sit till the time I got it right," he said.

Produced by UTV Spotboy, "ABCD - Any Body Can Dance" is said to be India's first 3D dance film. Apart from Prabhu deva and Salman, the film also features Kay Kay Menon, Ganesh Acharya, Dharmesh and Mayuresh. It will hit theatres Feb 8 next year.

The 27-year-old became popular after winning season one of the dance reality show "Dance India Dance" in 2009. He featured in the title track of the film "Wanted" and participated as a choreographer in "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4 - Dancing with the Stars" and "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 - Dancing with the stars".

The feeling of being an actor and that his debut film is about to release is yet to sink in, says Salman.

"I wanted it so badly that now when I have it I can't digest it. The feeling will sink in only when I will watch first show of the film in a theatre and see people's reaction. That is when I will believe that my dream has come true," he said.

"ABCD..." gave him a chance to explore the actor inside him, feels Salman.

"This film gave me the chance to showcase my talent as an actor. Everyone has seen me dancing and not seen me acting. In the beginning, it was a little difficult but not something that I could not achieve. It has been a learning experience for me. I know I can do better but I am satisfied with what I have done," he said.

Post "ABCD...", Salman will be seen in Vivek Agnihotri's "Freedom".
