'Dabangg 2' is way beyond action and comedy: Arbaaz Khan
Actor Arbaaz Khan, who has turned director with Salman Khan-starrer "Dabangg 2", says the film is not just minldess 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 its release.
"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.
