MUMBAI: Bollywood actors Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha have begun their rounds of reality TV shows, to promote their upcoming cowboy-styled action flick ‘Dabangg 2’.
The first stop on their multi channel Television tour was Zee TV’s singing show, ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. And they were in promo heaven with the anchors, contestants and judges of the show; ensuring everyone has a blast with corrupt yet affable cop ‘Chulbul Pandey’.
The ‘Dabangg’ dude chose a black Being Human tee and a pair of distressed blue jeans as his attire for the shooting. And how could we miss his quintessentially Salman Khan style in the form of his oversized bracelet, which we have never seen him without.
Sonakshi aka Rajjo; Salman’s co-star in ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Dabangg 2’ was seen in a pretty pink Manish Malhotra sari, with yellow detailing on the pallu.
Salman has been using the reality TV show that he hosts, Bigg Boss season 6, as a platform to promote his upcoming film. First, he unveiled the trailer of the film on the reality TV show’s episode, with brother and debutant director Arbaaz Khan firmly by his side. Then came the unveiling of the much anticipated item song by Kareena Kapoor Khan, aptly titled ‘Fevicol’. And now Salman seems to have set his sights upon other channels’ and TV series to build up the excitement for ‘Dabangg 2’, which releases on 21st December.
Recently director Arbaaz shared the experience of directing his big brother and superstar Salman, “It is comfortable. When you work with your family members, it becomes a very homely atmosphere. But in spite of this, we work professionally,” said Arbaaz very candidly.
He also added that though ‘Dabangg 2’ may seem like a family film to the audiences, he made sure that the atmosphere on sets was completely professional.
“On the set, Salman Khan is a big star and I am a debutant director. He expects me to be at my best and I, as a first time director, expect him to give me all his expertise. We agree on many things and disagree on many. We debate, which is sometimes a discussion and sometimes an argument,” he added.
Arbaaz also let us in on the pressures of making ‘Dabangg 2’. “Salman Khan is a big star and he has a big fan following. A lot of people want to watch him. But with that it is also your duty to make a good film. It’s not like you can take everything for granted and say that it’s Salman Khan and ‘Dabangg’ and people will come to watch the film.”
Arbaaz Khan signed of with, “We have put in sincere and honest efforts to make a good film…so if these things add to his fan following, it will be great…this is our effort.”
