The Not A Love Story actor has bagged a plum role in the sequel of the blockbuster Salman Khan-starrer
There has been a lot of buzz about the return of Salman Khan as Robinhood Pandey even before the film has gone on the floors. The film has already been in news for Abhinav Kashyap’s walk out, Arbaaz Khan deciding to don the director’s hat, Sonu Sood’s exit from the sequel and Prakash Raj replacing him. The latest news is that actor Deepak Dobriyal, who was last seen in Ram Gopal Varma’s Not A Love Story has been signed on to play an important role in Dabangg 2. Confirming the news, director Arbaaz Khan said, “Yes, he has an important role in the sequel, but that’s all I can reveal now.” Talking about his role in the film, an excited Dobriyal said, “Though I cannot talk much about the film now, I can say it is an important role. Dabangg 2 is different from the first version and I am very excited about working with Salman Khan.” When we asked him if he would be beefing up for the role, he said, “I am cast in films because of my performance, not physique.” We think it will be great to see Dobriyal in a film that’s set in a similar milieu to Omkara, where he outshone Saif Ali Khan despite having a comparatively smaller part.
