Is Salman Khan all set to turn into a full-fledged director soon?

Well, considering his deep involvement with the making of his films, it is likely that he would take credit for direction.

For Dabangg 3, Salman has been actively collaborating with the film’s official director Prabhudheva over every shot and the editing as well. According to a source in the know, “This has been the trend from Dabangg to Dabangg 2 andnow for Dabangg 3. Salman’s contribution has been increasing. In Dabangg 3, he could be billed as co-director if he wants, as his contribution is high.”

As far as overseeing the editing of Dabangg 3 is concerned, a source says, “This is Salman’s home production. He has every right to decide the final shape of the film. Even when he does outside films, directors take his advice on the final editing.”

While Sanjay Leela Bhansali saw Salman’s increased involvement as interference, which eventuated in his collaboration with Salman named Inshallah being called off, Prabhudheva takes Salman’s ‘suggestions’ (read: inputs) as valuable.

Prabhudheva says: “Salman is a vastly experienced actor. He has been around for 25 years and has worked with some of the best directors of the country. He understands cinema. His suggestions can only be considered helpful and advantageous to the film.”
