Arbaaz Khan, the Bollywood film maker, in all likelihood, might not direct Dabangg series’ next film Dabangg 3 that stared Salman Khan.
Arbaaz, the producer, had earlier announced on Twitter his intention to direct Dabangg 3, but on Wednesday clarified that he was thinking about handing over the director’s job to a capable person. He added that performing three jobs would be too hectic for him, so he thought about engaging another person do the director’s job. He further added that if he could handle all three jobs including the job of directing without any extra pressure, he could still think of doing the directorial duties. However, if it were not so; meaning thereby on feeling pressure, he could hand over the job of direction to some other suitable person. He added that he was not hell bent on directing the film.
Arbaaz who made his directorial debut with Dabangg 2, the 2013 hit film, had produced, and acted in the film, too. He had felt the pressure in handling all three roles in the film, and hence, he wanted another person as director for Dabangg 3. Although, he had have no health issue, still, he thought, the stress arising out of performing three roles at a time was too much. If it were a film in which he did not act, he would gladly like to direct, he added.
Arbaaz produced Dolly Ki Doli starring Sonam Kapoor besides Dabangg, and desired to produce mainstream commercial films for the time being before taking up niche cinema. He said that he wanted to produce wholesome entertainers that appealed large audiences.
