MUMBAI: Looks like Bollywood actor Arbaaz Khan is thoroughly enjoying being director. We caught him in action on the sets of ‘Dabangg 2’, effectively running the show in his debut directorial venture.
Going through the scenes with his team, getting behind the camera, instructing his team on the visual dialogue of the scene and even pondering… you can see him doing it all.
Taking the director’s seat has meant that Arbaaz has had to take on the dual role of producing as well as directing. For a franchise like ‘Dabangg’, this is indeed quite a tough task.
While directing was planned somewhere in his career, it has happened much sooner for Arbaaz. “I always knew that sooner or later, I would turn director. After all, I couldn’t have been relegated to being producer for the rest of my life,” Arbaaz had declared in a recent interview.
“I was fascinated more with what went behind the scenes than in front of it. I found it to be more creative. As an actor, sometimes I felt a little restricted as I was not really in control over the roles that I wanted to do. There was some progress though when I started production because I found a little more control coming my way,” he further explained.
And in control he seems to be! Check out these pictures to get a glimpse into the making of Dabangg 2!
