Arbaaz Khan, who is making his debut as director with ‘Dabangg 2’, sequel to blockbuster hit ‘Dabangg’, said that it was a creative decision to rope in Kareena Kapoor for the item number ‘Fevicol’ instead of his wife Malaika Arora Khan.
“The song is fantastic and she has done a superb job in it. The response is overwhelming. It was a mutual consensus and creative call to have Kareena do it,” said Arbaaz Khan to IANS.
After Malaika Arora Khan set screens on fire with her fabulous dancing in the item song ‘Munni Badnaam’ from ‘Dabangg’ many expected the makers to recreate the same magic with her. So it came as a surprise to many when Kareena Kapoor was roped in for the item number.
Arbaaz Khan said that though Malaika Arora Khan will be missing from the item song ‘Fevicol’, she makes a special appearance in another song from the movie called ‘Pandey Ji’.
“Malaika is there in the film. She has a special appearance in ‘Pandey ji’ song,” he said.
The song ‘Fevicol’ that was recently unveiled on Salman Khan’s TV show ‘Bigg Boss’ has already become a fan favorite.
When asked if he has any plans on making ‘Dabangg 3’ Arbaaz said they will take a decision based on the response of the audience to ‘Dabangg 2’.
‘Dabangg 2’ stars Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Prakash Raj. Arbaaz Khan too has a crucial role in the movie.
The movie is all set to release on December 21.
