The makers of Dabangg are planning on a third film but actor-director Arbaaz Khan, who has been a part of the first two Dabangg films, said he is waiting for his brother, Salman Khan, to give dates for the third instalment.
In Dabangg which was made in 2010 Salman played the lead and the film 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.
“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 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 a good camaraderie.”
Freaky Ali is set to be released on September 9. – CINEWS
