The Munna Michael director Sabbir Khan seems to have angered Salman Khan and his brothers by telling a tabloid that he would be directing Dabangg 3.
Over-excited by the thought of directing Salman Khan, Sabbir told a tabloid, “Yes, I’ve started working on a plan for Dabangg 3 but I can’t say anything until the paperwork is finalised. I am in talks and am really happy that I was one of directors selected to work on the final script.”
Sources close to the Khan family say Salman Khan was “annoyed” when he read this.
“Salman has asked his friend Prabhudheva to direct Dabangg 3. And it seemed as though by trying to steal the thunder Sabbir was creating a confusion in the trade to his own advantage,” says a friend.
One doesn’t know what prompted the Baaghi director to propagate this lie which has not gone down well with the Khans.In fact ArbaazKhan came forward to insultingly tweet against Sabbir’s claim calling it “untrue” and “rubbish”.
The matter doesn’t end there. Apparently the Khans are so pissed off with Sabbir’s vain claim that they’ve sworn never to be associated with Sabbir any more. Even Salman’s buddy producer SajidNadiadwala who gave Sabbir his first directorial break in KambhakktIshq followed by Hero-panti and Baaghi, has signed choreographer Ahmed Khan to direct Baaghi 2 .
