Prabhu Deva to play Chandrababu in biopic?

This is the season of biopics in Tamil cinema and one such movie is being planned on veteran comedy actor Chandrababu, who is a dancer as well.
If sources are to be believed, actor-choreographer-filmmaker Prabhu Deva would play the legendary personality in this flick, to be directed by K Rajeshwar of ‘Amaran’ and ‘Seevalaperi Pandi’ fame.

Chandrababu, whose original name was Joseph Panimayadas Chandrababu Rodriguez, was born in 1927 and died in 1974.  He was a comedian, actor, director, singer and dancer, whose Chaplinesque style on-screen movements and singing style made him popular from the late 1940s to the early 1970s. 

He had a mastery of the Madras Bashai, a dialect unique to the Madras region. His slapstick style of comedy has been emulated by subsequent actors. Many of his songs have remained popular.
