Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan, who had previously decided to keep their ‘Dabangg’ unit intact sans Abhinav Kashyap, who had walked out of ‘Dabangg 2’ previously, have decided to let go of their ‘Dabangg’ unit and work with a new crew for ‘Dabangg 2’.
"The earlier plan was to retain the entire cast and crew barring of course Abhinav Kashyap who had already opted out of the sequel. Dileep Shukla was roped in to write Dabangg 2. As the script developed, Arbaaz Khan realised that he'll have to work within a new setup and with an entirely new set of man-power for the film,” said a source.
Anyhow, most of the technicians had opted out of ‘Dabangg 2’ to work on Abhinav Kashyap’s next movie featuring Shah Rukh Khan.
When contacted Arbaaz Khan, he confirmed the news and said, “Why are people presuming that I'd have to depend on creative resources from the first Dabangg to make Dabangg 2? I've been born into a film family. I grew up hearing scripts and people talking cinema. I know enough about cinema to turn director confidently. It's true we don't have the original crew on board. We've hired a first-rate group of fresh technicians for Dabangg 2."
"We know what we're doing. It's Dileep Shukla who has written the sequel. But it is my vision and ideas that have been put into the screenplay. I know exactly how I want to shoot the film. The novelty of seeing Salman playing Chulbul Pandey with a moustache has worn off. We'll be going beyond," he added.
