Why does Dabangg have double 'g'?

Considering how superstitious many Bollywood stars have become, it seemed Arbaaz Khan had his first production Dabangg spelt with double 'g'. But he explains otherwise.

"Dabangg means fearless. We had earlier spelt it as Dabang but many people were reading it 'Da-Bang'. There may be an astrological reason for all you know, but the actual reason is to cause a resonance and stress on 'g' so that the word is pronounced correctly," Arbaaz said.

Dabangg features Arbaaz's elder brother Salman and debutant Sonakshi Sinha. It has been directed by first-timer Abhinav Kashyap.
