‘Dabangg’ was trend-setter: Arbaaz Khan

Mumbai: Arbaaz Khan feels his debut production venture ‘Dabangg’ in 2010 brought a new trend in the Bollywood industry with its ‘desi-tadka.’

The star feels studying trend and thinking ahead of it is a very important part of filmmaking in today’s time.

“Before ‘Dabangg’ there was a period when people stopped making ‘desi’ movies. They were more inclined to westernised work, outdoor shoots and things like that. That was trending then. By then, ‘Dabangg’ came and changed the trend,” he said here at an event yesterday.

“Sometimes you have to out beat the trend. Sometimes you are lucky and sometimes you are not, but you have to look ahead. If your film is similar to others, then people will feel it repetitive,” added the actor.

Further talking about his birthday plans, who turns 49 today, Arbaaz said, “I will be working at Mehboob studio. May be I will go out for dinner with family.
