'Dabangg 3 shoot will start by middle of next year'
...says Arbaaz Khan, adding that the team is planning to cast Sunny Leone in the movie
National Award-winning filmmaker Arbaaz Khan, who produced the commercially successful Dabangg series, says that he has started scripting the next installment of the franchise. "I think we will start shooting Dabangg 3 by the middle of next year," the actor-filmmaker told the media at the trailer launch of his upcoming film Tera Intezaar.
As Sunny Leone, his co-star in Tera Intezaar, was also present, Arbaaz was asked if he is had plans to rope her in for an item number like Munni Badnaam. "Yes, why not? And why would she be a Munni, we can cast her for something different. But for that, we have to finalise something," he replied.
Arbaaz has shared his screen space with Sunny for the first time in Tera Intezaar, and he admitted that "one of the reasons I did the film, was to spend some time with Sunny. She is wonderful and we had a great time shooting abroad."
Asked if he was planning to promote the film on Bigg Boss- 11, which is hosted by his brother, Salman Khan, Arbaaz said, "Well, I think that is up to the producer to decide. If we have the opportunity, and if the channel allows us to do so, why not." He added, "Though I do not watch Bigg Boss every day, I like the show. I followed the earlier seasons. And I watched all episodes which had Sunny (Leone) in it."
Tera Intezaar is releasing on November 24.
