Salman Khan is by far Bollywood’s most celebrated superstar today, and the two films that elevated him to this untouchable stature, were Prabhudeva’s ‘Wanted’ and Abhinav Kashyap’s ‘Dabangg’. The action films were a major turning point in his career.
While ‘Dabangg’s sequel was helmed by Salman’s brother Arbaaz Khan and ‘Wanted’ never had a sequel, until now. Prabhu Deva is expected to make an official announcement soon, after Salman gave him the go ahead, after suggesting a basic plot to the actor-director.
However, this has put Arbaaz Khan’s ‘Dabangg 3’ in jeopardy, as the film has now been indefinitely pushed, since Sallu is expected to work on Prabhu’s directorial, right after he finishes work on ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’.
This has reportedly angered Arbaaz as he was commencing work on the film at the earliest. A close source reveals, “Arbaaz Khan has been planning to direct Dabangg 3 for the longest time but his brother Salman’s tight schedule isn’t letting Dabangg 3 to happen. Salman, who finished Tubelight and shooting Tiger Zinda Hai will start Wanted 2 soon after which is why Dabangg 3 has been pushed. And Arbaaz isn’t exactly pleased with this development and is upset with Salman.”
Well, one can only hope for the matter to be resolved amicably, as no one wants a Khan family feud.
Salman is slated to be seen in Kabir Khan’s Eid 2017 release ‘Tubelight’ next, co-starring brother Sohail Khan, along with a crucial cameo by Shah Rukh Khan. the film is slated to release on June 25.
