Mumbai: Actor and filmmaker Sohail Khan is hopeful for ‘Dabangg 2’ and wants that the film, which has come out Friday, to turn out to be a big release for his brother Arbaaz Khan, who debuts as a director with the action comedy.
"We are hopeful, but, ultimately, it`s the audience`s verdict. Arbaaz Bhai has worked very hard," said the youngest of the Khan brothers, adding that the debutant director has had to contend with the fact that Dabangg was a huge hit.
"I truly want that Dabangg 2`s release proves to be a big and fruitful release for Arbaaz," said Sohail at the premiere of the film in the city.
‘Dabangg 2’, a sequel to 2010 hit ‘Dabangg’, once again features Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles.
He is also hopeful that Salman`s dream run of hits will continue, saying: "Inshallah, Salman Bhai has given many hits in his career and will continue with that."
Also present at the event was the debutant director`s wife Malaika Arora Khan, who performed the hit item number `Munni badnam hui` in "Dabangg". And she does not want any comparisons between the two films.
"I am happy that people are liking it and that`s all I care. Whether you like `Munni` more or `Fevicol` more, `D1` or `D2` (is not important). People are liking it, that`s more important," said the style icon and model.
