Why does Salman Khan`s `Dabangg` have double `g`?

Mumbai: Considering how superstitious many Bollywood stars have become, it seemed Arbaaz Khan had his first production `Dabangg` spelt with double `g`. But he explains otherwise.

"`Dabangg` means fearless. We had earlier spelt it as `Dabang` but many people were reading it `Da-Bang`. There may be an astrological reason for all you know, but the actual reason is to cause a resonance and stress on `g` so that the word is pronounced correctly," Arbaaz said.

"Dabangg" features Arbaaz`s elder brother Salman and debutant Sonakshi Sinha. It has been directed by first-timer Abhinav Kashyap.
