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.
