Arbaaz Khan is happy that the film has created quite a buzz before its release
Actor Arbaaz Khan, who has turned
director with Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 2, says the film
is not just mindless action and comedy but has an inherent
story that binds all the drama.
The film, which will hit theatres on December 21, is the
sequel to Dabangg with Salman and Sonakshi reprising their
characters of Chulbul Pandey and Rajjo respectively while
Prakash Raj is the main antagonist.
"You would see a lot of style coming along with the
action and it would be in the kind of space that Chulbul
Pandey as a character and Dabangg as a brand stand for.
"Having said that, while action is an integral part of
the film, it would be not more than what is necessary. There
is a story running behind all the action. You just can't have
action and more of action. None of it would hold if there is
no emotion behind it; for that you need to have a story in a
scene or a sequence," Arbaaz told PTI.
The sequel has a sizzling item number Fevicol Se by
actress Kareena Kapoor and other numbers are also topping the
charts. Music-composer duo Sajid-Wajid have been roped in this
time too for the compositions.
"There are five songs in the movie and while the music of
Dabangg was outstanding, Sajid-Wajid have gone ahead and
churned out something even better; I genuinely believe that
the composers have done a fabulous job," Arbaaz said.
He is happy that the film has created quite a buzz before
"I had to be conscious about the fact that the brand and
the character stood for their true worth in the sequel and had
something good to offer as well. I wanted to put the film in a
very interesting way and give entertainment along with it. I
could never lose sight of the entertainment quotient since
that's the most important aspect here," he said.
