Ek Tha Tiger has almost ended its run and Salman Khan is back to the grind. With the euphoria around the film settling down, Salman would now be kick-starting a grueling month long schedule that would see him getting into hardcore action, Dabangg ishtyle!
“Ek Tha Tiger was more about car chases, explosions and some hi-tech action. However, Dabangg 2 is more raw and rustic. Arbaaz Khan and his team have devised the kind of ‘desi’ action that Salman’s fans like and that would require a lot of physical exertion for ‘bhai’”, informs our highly placed source from the film’s unit.
It is a known fact that even though Abhinav Kashyap was the director of Dabangg, it was Arbaaz Khan who wanted action to have certain look and feel to it and got it all changed to suit the film’s requirement. Now that he is driving the entire sequel as the director, he is totally in charge and has kept aside as good as 20-25 days just for filming the action sequences.
“Both brothers are on the same page here and Salman understands what exactly is Arbaaz looking for. He has learnt how to fight his illness now and is going all out to make Dabangg 2 action stand out. Since this would form the climax sequence of the film, it is set as quite volcanic. Expect a lot of hand-to-hand action with muscles and force involved. Also, expect ‘bhai’ to go shirtless as well, something that he couldn’t afford to do in the action sequences of Ek Tha Tiger”, the source continues.
When contacted, Arbaaz confirmed that shooting of Dabangg 2 climax sequence starts next week at Satara. Though he refrained from divulging further details around the designing of these sequences, he just sent back a text stating, “It would be crowd friendly for sure.”
Well, one can be sure that Salman’s ‘dabangg’ fans would be happy to hear that!
