Mumbai: Salman Khan, now seen as an action hero, is shooting for ‘Dabangg 2’. Malaika Arora Khan, who co-produced ‘Dabangg’, says some of his action sequences in the sequel have been altered.

"Salman`s action scenes have been modified and done according to specifications taking his health in consideration," Malaika said here during a group interaction.

The 46-year-old has been battling health issues and even underwent surgery for Trigeminal Neuralgia, a facial nerve disorder.

Talking about Salman as a brand, Malaika said: "He has worked really hard and for an actor there are many ups and downs. They keep going through those phases. One can`t overlook the fact that Salman has a huge fan following, who always follow him."

Salman has made a place for himself in the action hero category with hits such as ‘Wanted’ and ‘Dabangg’.

‘Dabangg 2’, a sequel to the 2010 blockbuster, again stars Sonakshi Sinha in the female lead.

The sequel is like a family film - while Salman is playing the lead role, his younger brother Arbaaz is making his directorial debut with the actioner. He is also producing it.
