Speculations were being made when Arbaaz Khan announced that he won’t be directing Dabangg 3. Now Prabhu Deva has confirmed that he will be directing the sequel, and everything in the film else will remain the same!
He said, “I was in Mumbai last week to finalize the details. I can finally reveal that I am directing Dabangg 3 for Salman and Arbaaz Khan. We’ve been closely associated for the longest time. I share a warm friendship with them. Who says no to them.”
Prabhu Deva is also the one who is actually responsible for the revival of Salman’s career with his hit film “Wanted”, but he doesn’t like to take its credit. “It’s not like that, the biggest of superstars go through ups and downs in their career. Salman is Salman — flops or hits don’t matter to his career ”, he said.
He also accepted that he has not yet seen any of the Dabangg films, but is familiar with the image of Chulbul Pandey. “I’d like to give it my own spin. Of course, we all know what Salman’s Chulbul Pandey is all about. That sense of masti will remain in the cop’s role.”
He also shared that no big changes have been made in the cast, “Everything, including the cast, remains the same. Salman, Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz… the music will be by Sajid-Wajid. Everything in Dabangg is unchanged except me, the director.”
“Sonakshi and I share a comfort level. Salman Bhai too is comfortable with everyone in the team. We will have fun making this film” he said.
