Sonakshi Sinha who plays the lead actress of Dabangg 2, says Arbaaz Khan, who makes his directorial debut with the movie, should have gone behind the camera a long time back. “I personally feel Arbaaz is so well versed with his work that he should have turned director a long time back. I didn’t feel for a minute that he is directing for the first time. He is an all-rounder. He knows his work so well I am thankful to be working with him again,” Sonakshi.
Arbaaz turned producer with 2010 film Dabangg, which turned out to be a blockbuster. Now with Dabangg 2, he decided to take on the additional responsibility of directing it too. Sonakshi feels that the sequel, which has Salman Khan playing corrupt cop Chulbul Pandey once again, will be more entertaining than the original movie.
“I would say it was great working with the Dabangg team again. It’s always fun to work with Salman Khan. I am very excited for Dabangg 2, which is scheduled for a Christmas release. I’m sure it will be much more entertaining than Dabangg,” said the 25-year-old. Sonakshi, daughter of veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha, has so far worked with A-list actors like Salman and Akshay Kumar. In her latest release Son Of Sardaar, she is seen with Ajay Devgn.
Sonakshi says she considers herself lucky to have worked with Bollywood biggies in the initial stages of her career. “I consider myself lucky and fortunate to work with such wonderful co-stars in all my films. For me, more than anything else, the content of the film matters and I have been lucky with that as well,” she added.
