There is an excitement of a different kind in Arbaaz Khan's voice and one can sense it from the way he initiates a conversation.
On a career high ever since he produced 'Dabangg' a couple of years and never looking back ever since the moment the film turned into the second biggest blockbuster of all times (now in a fourth place after brother Salman's 'Ek Tha Tiger' and 'Bodyguard' reached the second and third spot respectively), Arbaaz can be seen all cheerful and smiling.
Now that's a pleasant sight no less because for someone who has put his entire stake on a biggie like 'Dabangg 2' which is being looked at with keen eyes by one and all, it would have been fair to assume that he is a lot weighed down, if not entirely bogged down with the burden of expectations.
However he is smiling and keeping his pleasant persona intact even as he is busy giving final touches to the biggest movie of the year that arrives in Christmas.
"Well, I look at this film as an opportunity and not a burden. 'Dabangg 2' has allowed me to slip into a zone I always wanted to. After all, this is a film which has been loved so much with the kind of characters that have been accepted.
Now the demand from me is to keep the flag high for it and yes, that's something which does require hard work", says Arbaaz for whom it has been a year long journey to can the film, "But then if I was involved in doing that in the first part as well then why not in the sequel as well? I would rather get directly involved and be the director of the film than just being a hands-on producer."
Now we look forward to results translating on screen as well Arbaaz.
