Malaika Arora Khan returns as a judge on reality show India’s Got Talent, with filmmaker Karan Johar, choreographer-director-actor Farah Khan and veteran actor Kirron Kher as co-judges.
The actress is enjoying a career high, even as her husband Arbaaz Khan starts his directorial career with Dabangg 2. Malaika refuses to spill the beans on the film but informs the franchise will be carried forward.
Malaika tells Rajul Hegde about her telly show on Colors (scheduled to start on September 22), and even tells us where her own talent lies.
Your item number Munni Badnaam Hui in Dabangg became a huge hit. How do you feel about Kareena Kapoor stepping into your shoes for the sequel?
I am very happy that Kareena is doing the song. She is family and like my younger sister. I am happy that she is a part of the film.
Are you also doing an item number or a special appearance in Dabangg 2?
I can’t tell you that (smiles).
Dabangg was a big hit and it’s now returning with a sequel. Will there be more sequels?
Yes. We would like to make more sequels. The franchise will be carried forward.
Dabangg is a brand.
When we were making the first film, we did not have the intention of making a sequel. It was later that we realised there is potential and we can take the film ahead.
We would definitely like to make Dabangg 3 or 4. But it is too early to say anything at the moment.
Salman Khan is giving one hit after another.
He has really worked very hard to reach where he is today. Actors have ups and downs and the best part is that his fan following has always been consistent.
The combination of Salman and the Dabangg brand will create magic this year.
People loved the character of Chulbul Pandey; they enjoyed the desi hardcore feel.
