While the superstar’s brother Arbaaz Khan is directing the film, Sallu is putting his experience and expertise to good use to ensure the film is a blockbuster bonanza
Ever since Salman Khan decided to turnaround his life and career, the superstar has been extensively and intensively involved in all his recent projects, Dabangg, Ready and Bodyguard. Not just that, he has even made the adamant Yash Raj bosses incorporate his suggestions in Ek Tha Tiger. But with their next family production Dabangg 2, directed by Arbaaz Khan, the current box-office badshah is headed to the next level. He’s been playing co-director on location.
A birdie from the sets at the Kamalistan studios informs us: apart from Arbaaz, the cast and crew wait for a green signal on everything from the superstar Salman! It’s not coz the younger Khan isn’t capable of directing the team and the project. It’s just that Sallu wants to be sure that there is no room for any mistakes and that it turns out even better than the original.
In an earlier interview, the superstar had confessed that one of the reasons he started taking a lot more interest in his films coz they failed at the box-office. “There were times when everyone’s films were working and my films were bombing, left, right and centre. But I didn’t panic at that point of time, because I knew those films were going to bomb,” he said and continued, “I had to do them because I liked the script, but I could not put my foot down (when I thought something wasn’t right). Today I have realised one thing: the guy who pays Rs 10 and someone who pays Rs 500 to see the movie – I have a responsibility towards them.” We won’t be surprised if the Dabangg Khan assumes complete control behind the camera for Dabangg 3. If it is made that is!
