Taking the Dabangg franchise forward, the makers of the superhit films are planning on a third film. But there is a hitch. Actor-director Arbaaz Khan, who has been a part of the first two Dabangg films, on Monday said they are waiting for his brother, superstar Salman Khan, to give dates for the third instalment.
Dabangg (2010), in which Salman had played the lead, marked the Bollywood debut of Sonakshi Sinha. The film produced by Arbaaz Khan and directed by Abhinay Kashyap was a blockbuster.
Its sequel saw the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor and Rowdy Rathore actor reprising their roles. It was directed and produced by Arbaaz. Now the third part of Dabangg is being planned.
“This is the man (Salman) who will give me the window (dates) otherwise he will show me the door,” Arbaaz said.
The trailer of Salman and Arbaaz’s brother Sohail Khan’s upcoming directorial venture Freaky Ali was launched in Mumbai on Monday.
The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Amy Jackson and Arbaaz in important roles.
On the occasion, Salman said in a lighter vein, “Why did you (media) remind him (Arbaaz) about the film. He had forgotten about Dabangg 3. But yes, we are working on the script.”
About his character in Freaky Ali, Arbaaz said, “I play Maqsood in the film. He is a side kick. He is a gangster, a petty thief, extortionist and when Ali (Nawazuddin’s character) is in trouble, he helps him. Ali and I share up and down equation.”
Freaky Ali is set to be released on September 9.
