Salman Khan sacks ‘Dabangg 2’ cinematographer!

It’s hard to please Salman Khan, particularly now that the superstar is busy working on Dabangg 2? Just three days of shooting the film in Mumbai has claimed the first casualty, the film’s cinematographer Senthil Kumar.

Senthil , who is a name to reckon with among the cinematographers down south and was the DoP of the hit movie Magadheera, has been given the pink slip from Dabangg 2. Reason? Salman Khan is unhappy with Senthil’s style of working.

In Senthil’s place, Salman has roped in Aseem, the cinematographer of Ek Tha Tiger with whom Salman had been shooting for the last few months.

Reportedly, Salman and Aseem make a good team of actor-cinematographer. They work well in tandem and one knows the style of the other. So they complement each other, which, Salman Khan thinks will benefit Dabangg 2.

Aseem has confirmed that he is the new cinematographer of Dabangg 2. Senthil, meanwhile, has packed his bags and left. We hear, Salman and Senthil parted ways on an amicable note.

Meanwhile, Arbaaz Khan, who is directing the film, is also on his toes trying to live up to the expectations Salman bhai has from him as a director.
