Speaking to a leading daily, Abhinav Kashyap has said that his relationship with Khans is good and has not soured, as the media claims. He admitted that his decision and the way he conveyed it to Arbaaz Khan obviously might have hurt the latter. He also agrees that he would have personally met Arbaaz and told him his decision.
However, the director says that it is a blessing in disguise for Arbaaz Khan, as he is interested in film direction. Dabangg 2 is a golden opportunity for the latter and he will not get better opportunity than this, concludes Abhinav Kashyap. Meanwhile, Arbaaz is planning to launch the second instalment of the film in December 2011.
Abhinav Kashyap has said that he should have personally conveyed his message to Arbaaz Khan that he is not keen to be part of Dabangg sequel, rather than sending SMS. The director admits that he would have handled the issue in better way.
