Arbaaz Khan is gearing up for the release of his Directorial debut flick, Dabangg 2 starring his older brother Salman Khan. Now, Arbaaz talks about how he always wanted to become a director and how he and Salman Khan fought regularly on the sets if they didn’t have the same views for a particular shot.
Arbaaz Khan said at an interview recently, “God forbid if something goes wrong, I don’t think it will be will be the end of Arbaaz Khan. Arbaaz Khan will bounce back.”
When asked about what people can expect from Dabanng 2, because Dabangg was already a huge hit, Arbaaz said: “As you know, Dabangg 2 is the sequel to the earlier film. We will be taking the story forward so that people can come and enjoy the journey further. We have tried to create things that can be more exciting for people. Dabangg symbolizes entertainment, drama, good music, actions and we have tried to give doses of all of that in the sequel too.”
Arbaaz was also asked about why he didn’t chose another accomplished director and opted for himself after Abhinav Kashyap decided to opt out of the film.
Arbaaz said: “Honestly, I always had the silent ambition of being a director.”
“I have not just been a mere producer; I have been involved with Abhinav on various aspects of the film, so when this opportunity arose, we had a void as to who will direct the film. I felt nobody, at that point in time and in the given circumstances, would be better suited to step in and take charge than myself, so I did it.”
Arbaaz chipped in saying he loved the tug of wars with Salman and how both of them argued a lot of times.
“Whatever the film could absorb or whatever was right for the film we have incorporated in the film. There were times when Salman Khan suggested things, we discussed and argued about it. At times I had to relent because I felt that I should trust his experience and his comfort level.”
“At other times, I managed to convince him. I enjoyed this tug of war where I give in sometimes and he gives in sometimes. Finally, we are both happy with the outcome.” added Arbaaz.
