Actor-turned-director Arbaaz Khan says his wife Malaika Arora Khan has been extremely supportive while he ventured into direction with the film Dabangg 2.
She is my wife and she is the co-producer of the film. Right from the time I started making the film – from the subject of the film, to finalising the actors, where I will be shooting… I used to discuss everything with her.
She was there as more of a sounding board. I wouldn’t say she was creatively involved in the films, because that’s not her job, that is not her domain and that is not what I wanted her to do. She is my wife and she is as much as the producer as I am.
Arbaaz says it was natural for him to turn a director as he always wanted to be one.
It’s a very natural progression in the film industry. People want to do different things. I always wanted to make a movie. It is just that there was an opportunity to be an actor early in my career, but I always at some stage wanted to make my movie, produce and direct a film and when the opportunity came to me, I had to avail it.
