Dileep Shukla on board for Dabangg 2

Arbaaz Khan is confident that he can pull off the direction of the sequel to Dabangg.

Says Arbaaz, “We had an array of great technicians helping Abhinav make his directorial debut. I’d get the same help. Finally, it’s the story that matters. My father (Salim Khan) is renowned scriptwriter with 40 years of experience. I’ve inherited his genes.”

Dileep Shukla wrote the basic story of Dabangg. Shukla who has written the story and dialogues for several films of Rajkumar Santoshi, is now being roped in to write the sequel to Dabangg 2.

Says Arbaaz Khan, “We are in communication with Dileep Shukla. We had no clue he had written the original story.”

Arbaaz says he has no time to nurse grudges. Says the producer who will turn director with Dabangg 2, “We cannot really figure out what went on in Abhinav’s mind nor do we care. But we do know he was not happy with the fact that we (Salman and Arbaaz) took creative charge of the Dabangg. He had made a film of 2 hours 50 minutes. We thought that was too long. We edited it down to 2 hours 2 minutes. Maybe Abhinav felt creatively challenged due to this. I really don’t know. All I know is God has his own plans. I didn’t know he planned to turn me into a director so suddenly.”
