Salman Khan snubbed?
We heard Abhinav Kashyap has declined Salman’s repeated requests to direct Dabangg sequel
Life seems to have come a full circle for Salman Khan. All these years Sallu was saying no to filmmakers, acting all pricey and being so picky. Reports are that he has now been humbled by Abhinav Kashyap, the same guy whom he gave a dream directorial debut with the blockbuster Dabangg, which went on to win a National Award. When their first fallout was reported a few months back, producer Arbaaz Khan, expressing his displeasure posted a message on Twitter saying “Instead of showing gratitude, some people are showing attitude.” This was back then and a lot has happened post that. Arbaaz decided to take over as a director and the scripting was on with gusto. Then we heard that Sallu wasn’t really sure about his brother directing the sequel, due to which he had sent feelers to Kashyap asking him to take charge once again. Apparently Kashyap has moved on and is working on his next film which is being produced by Viacom 18. Rumours started doing the rounds that Kashyap’s film was a Shahrukh Khan-starrer, because of which he had refused to do the Dabangg sequel, but even that was later denied. We are wondering what Kashyap’s next film will be and also will Arbaaz be able to surpass the success of Dabangg with his sequel? What do you think?
