Dabangg 2 will have Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha reprising their characters of Chulbul Pandey and Rajjo. Sonu Sood has been replaced by Prakash Raj as the main antagonist. The director of the film, Arbaaz Khan says, the film is not plain action and comedy. It is much more than that.
“You would see a lot of style coming along with the action and it would be in the kind of space that Chulbul Pandey as a character and ‘Dabangg’ as a brand stand for. ‘Having said that, while action is an integral part of the film, it would be not more than what is necessary. There is a story running behind all the action,” says the director.
“You just can’t have action and more of action. None of it would hold if there is no emotion behind it; for that you need to have a story in a scene or a sequence,” Arbaaz added.
The music of Dabangg 2 is already topping the charts. Music-composer duo Sajid-Wajid have been roped for the film’s sequeal too.“There are five songs in the movie and while the music of ‘Dabangg’ was outstanding, Sajid-Wajid have gone ahead and churned out something even better; I genuinely believe that.”
The fact that Dabangg 2 has created quite a lot of buzz even before its release, is very exciting to the director.
He added, “I had to be conscious about the fact that the brand and the character stood for their true worth in the sequel and had something good to offer as well. I wanted to put the film in a very interesting way and give entertainment along with it. I could never lose sight of the entertainment quotient since that’s the most important aspect here.” he said.
