Actor-producer Arbaaz Khan, who has now turned director with the Salman Khan-starrer “Dabangg 2,” says the film offers more than just mindless action and comedy.
The film, which hit theaters Dec. 21, is the sequel to “Dabangg,” with Arbaaz’s brother, Salman Khan, and Sonakshi Sinha reprising their characters of Chulbul Pandey and Rajjo respectively. Prakash Raj plays the main antagonist.
“You would see a lot of style coming along with the action and it would be in the kind of space that Chulbul Pandey as a character, and ‘Dabangg’ as a brand, stand for,” Khan said Dec. 17.
“Having said that, while action is an integral part of the film, it would be not more than what is necessary. There is a story running behind all the action. You just can’t have action and more of action. None of it would hold if there is no emotion behind it; for that you need to have a story in a scene or a sequence,” Arbaaz told PTI.
The sequel has a sizzling item number, “Fevicol Se,” by actress Kareena Kapoor, and other numbers are also topping the charts. Music-composer duo Sajid-Wajid have been roped in this time too.
“While the music of ‘Dabangg’ was outstanding, Sajid-Wajid have gone ahead and churned out something even better; I genuinely believe that. The composers have done a fabulous job,” Arbaaz said.
“I could never lose sight of the entertainment quotient since that’s the most important aspect here,” he said.
