What can audiences expect from Dabangg 2?
I don’t know. Dabangg (2010) did really well. I don’t know if you can expect the same thing from Dabangg 2 or not. We’ll find out on December 21.

Was making the sequel tough?
It is not easy. If you follow the same path, aise lagta hai ki yeh dekhi hui picture hain (it looks like a film you’ve seen before), if you do something different, then it looks like a different film. There has to be a mix.

How was it to be directed by your brother, Arbaaz Khan?
I was glad. He was very involved in the first film. You gave Sonakshi Sinha a break with Dabangg. Now she has become a successful actor. Was working with her different this time around?
She is a confident girl. This role got her where she is today and she is comfortable knowing that. Sonakshi, Sohail, Arbaaz and I share a great comfort level. That has helped our film.
 
You were popular as a romantic hero. Do you miss those roles?
No. A hero is a hero — whether in a romantic role or in an action part. I would like to go back to doing those kinds of films too, but they have to be larger than life. Everything you do has to be larger than life.
 
Do you watch a lot of TV? You’re being appreciated as the host of the reality show Bigg Boss.
I watch a lot of TV. That’s why I can contribute this much. Today, I missed watching the 10 pm episode of Bigg Boss, but I’ll catch the repeat telecast. Sometimes when I don’t understand what’s happening, I watch some episodes twice.

What’s the next step for your charity, Being Human?
The Being Human café will start in 2013. A lots is happening.
