After turning producer with DABANGG, Arbaaz Khan decided to turn director with the film’s sequel. Now that he is progressing ahead with the film, Arbaaz is feeling all the more liberated with the ‘double role’ that he is playing, more so since he had seen the industry up, close and personal in his stint as an actor.
“This is but natural when you are born and brought up in a family where you talk and breathe films all the time. Also, for whatever it is worth, I have acted in over 45 films. Some were significant, some were not, but the experience does count. Even as an actor, I used to constantly think about the approach I would have taken if I was making the film,” says Arbaaz.
Now that he is happy calling the shots, Arbaaz is all the more excited about taking the saga of ‘Chulbul Pandey’ forward along with Salman.
“Both us are pretty comfortable with the way ‘Chulbul Pandey’ should act and behave in the sequel,” says Arbaaz in an assured tone, “There is a certain comfort level that both of us have gained about the way the character should evolve in the sequel. Based on the shoot we have done and the way Salman has taken the film forward, both of us are quite pleased. We understand the sur that ‘Chulbul’ is expected to follow and based on that there are just the right scenes and character placement.”
Well, come December and the escapades of CHULBUL PANDEY would be there for all to see.
