Sohail Khan wants Dabangg 2 to succeed for Arbaaz
Arbaaz Khan makes his debut as a director with Dabangg 2 starring Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha
Actor and filmmaker Sohail Khan is hopeful for Dabangg 2 and wants that the film, which has come out on Friday, to turn out to be a big release for his elder brother, who debuts as a director with the action comedy.“We are hopeful, but, ultimately, it’s the audience’s verdict. Arbaaz Bhai has worked very hard,” said the youngest of the Khan brothers, adding that the debutant director has had to contend with the fact that Dabangg was a huge hit. “I truly want that Dabangg 2‘s release proves to be a big and fruitful release for Arbaaz,” said Sohail at the premiere of the film in the city.
Dabangg 2, a sequel to 2010 hit Dabangg, once again features Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles. He is also hopeful that Salman’s dream run of hits will continue, saying: “Inshallah, Salman Bhai has given many hits in his career and will continue with that.”
Also present at the event was the debutant director’s wife Malaika Arora Khan, who performed the hit item number Munni badnam hui in Dabangg. And she does not want any comparisons between the two films. “I am happy that people are liking it and that’s all I care. Whether you like Munni more or Fevicol more, it is not important. People are liking it, that’s more important,” said the style icon and model.
