Dabangg 2 had been in news before it has actually been on floors. Recently there was news that there was tension brewing between Salman Khan and Abhinav Kashyap because of the interference of Khan Brothers while they edited and filmed Dabangg. This obviously did not go well with the director of Dabangg. Taking a twist a story came in forefront that Salman and Abhinav have patched up and Abhinav was on cards for directing the sequel of Dabangg.
But this is B town where each new day every new moment starts afresh with new gossip. Recently a new twist in the story has buzzed up. Earlier when reportedly Kashyap chose to quit the director seat for Dabangg 2 the reasons were clear – spats with Arbaaz Khan, the producer of the film. And one night Kashyap sent Arbaaz an SMS message informing him that he was no longer interested in being a part of the upcoming venture.
“It seems strange that Abhinav decided to leave ‘Dabangg 2’, since ‘Dabangg’ was his debut and was the biggest hit of 2010,” reveals a source from the industry. He adds further, Incidentally, Arbaaz had been nursing directorial ambitions right from the beginning and was only too glad to step into the director’s shoes.”
To confirm the news Arbaaz stated in a media chat recently, “There have been issues with Abhinav Kashyap and he will no longer be directing ‘Dabangg 2’. But, it’s strange how he shot me an SMS and didn’t even bother to meet me personally. I will be directing ‘Dabangg 2’ and the process has already begun. I had been involved with every aspect of ‘Dabangg’ as a producer. We’ve started work on the subject and will have the first draft ready within the next 2 to 3 months.”
He also twitted on a micro blogging site saying “Hey guys it true, I will be directing the sequel of Dabangg. Abhinav for some personal n professional reasons opted out (sic).”
Actor turned Producer (now) Director Arbaaz further says, “Scripting has already started, the filming starts by early January. Start sound, camera, action. Inshallah Dabangg 2 will live up to all the expectations and be a huge blockbuster because of you all. God bless . Allah hafiz. Dabangg ho!”
Guys! Be ready for another roller coaster ride of action, drama, thrill and romance in sequel of Dabangg.
