Bollywood superstar Arbaaz Khan slammed ‘Munna Michael’ director Sabbir Khan for claiming to direct the third instalment of superstar and brother Salman Khan-starrer ‘Dabangg 3’.
Arbaaz Khan took to Twitter to dismiss a report by a Mumbai tabloid that quoted Sabbir Khan as saying he would be directing ‘Dabangg 3’.
Arbaaz Khan tweeted, “Sabir khan was never approached to direct or write Dabangg 3. His statement in Mumbai Mirror is untrue and rubbish. Extremely disappointing”
‘Tubelight’ must have failed to set the cash registers ringing at the box-office but Salman Khan fans have a chance to rejoice. Their beloved police inspector ‘Chulbul Pandey’ is returning in the third installment of ‘Dabanng’- ‘Dabangg 3’.
‘Dabangg’ released in 2010 while ‘Dabangg 2’ hit the screens in 2012. Co-directed by Arbaaz Khan, both the films starred actress Sonakshi Sinha.
Salman Khan says his brother Arbaaz does not want to direct ‘Dabangg 3’, and that they will find a ‘good director’ for it.
While Sohail has directed Salman in films like ‘Auzaar’, ‘Jai Ho’, ‘Hello Brother’ and ‘Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya’, Arbaaz has directed Salman in only one movie ‘Dabangg 2’.
When Salman was asked about his favourite director among the two, he said, “Since Arbaaz doesn’t want to direct, I feel Sohail is a better director because he is more patient and with Sohail, you can improvise on things but in a similar situation, Arbaaz gets panicked and his blood pressure starts to fluctuate.”
“Now we are going to start ‘Dabangg 3’, so he (Arbaaz) told me ‘Very good, but I am not going to direct it and I am only producing it’. So I said, ‘Very good, we will find a good director for that’.”
