Malaika has been extremely supportive: Arbaaz Khan

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.

Arbaaz-Khan

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.

Arbaaz said.

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.

he added.

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.

he said.
