Who will make ‘Dabangg 2’ if not me, asks Abhinav Kashyap

Mumbai: Abhinav Kashyap, whose directorial debut ‘Dabangg’ is the biggest hit of year so far, rubbishes rumours that he won`t be making the sequel of the film but adds that it will take a couple of years for the second edition to hit screens.

“This is just a rumour. I want to know if I am not making it, then who is making it? I even spoke to Arbaaz (Khan)...even he doesn`t know from where these rumours are coming,” Kashyap told reporters.

There was much speculation that the sequel to the Salman Khan-starrer would be directed by actor-producer Arbaaz Khan or his brother Sohail Khan.

Kashyap added: “‘Dabangg’ sequel will happen in two years from now because Salman is committed to do two or three films besides television shows and live shows. To make a film, you need time, especially from the lead cast, which I would not have before one and a half years from now.”

The director says that he would, however, be making another film before the ‘Dabangg’ sequel.

"I haven`t started writing the script of ‘Dabangg 2’. I have started developing the script of what I want to do. I would make another film before ‘Dabangg 2’. ‘Dabangg2’ would not be my second film," said Kashyap.
