In 2010, when Malaika and Arbaaz Khan turned producers for Dabangg, they had never thought of making a sequel to the blockbuster. But with the film turning a huge hit at the box office, they realized there was much more potential and started on Dabangg 2.
“When we were making the first film, we did not have the intention of making a sequel. It was later that we realized there is a 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 right now,” said Malaika.
“It is obvious that at the end of the day a Salman Khan film will without doubt have a good opening. But let’s not forget that Dabangg is also a brand. There are loyal fans that would come to watch. People loved the character of Chulbul Pandey, enjoyed the desi hardcore feel,” she added
The superstar – Salman Khan himself confirmed earlier this year that in Dabangg 3, Chulbul Pandey would be posted in Mumbai as Police commissioner.
Meanwhile elaborating more on this year’s release, Malaika has revealed that the action sequences in the sequel have been altered keeping in mind ‘bhai’s’ health complications. Also, the producer is apparently very excited that Kareena Kapoor will be replacing her for the item number.
“I am really very happy that Kareena is doing the song. She is family… she is like my younger sister. I am happy that she is a part of the film,” Malaika said.
But will we see, Malaika doing any saucy number, or sizzling special appearance? “I can’t tell you that,” said the actress cheekily.
We’ll all have to wait to find out!
