DABANGG has taken the biggest ever opening of all times, hence eclipsing the 80 crores first week (including Thursday previews) that 3 IDIOTS had boasted of. First time producer Arbaaz Khan has hit the jackpot as well. While he played a strong supporting role in the Salman Khan starrer, he insists that post DABANGG he would be continuing to act in films rather than pursuing a full time career as a producer.

"I am still open to film offers and haven't put an end to my acting career", announces Arbaaz who is definitely going through the biggest high in his career, "However, I won't be doing everything that comes my way. It has to be something that really excites me. A film maker has to tell me that this is a role that only I can do, something that Madhur Bhandarkar told me when he approached me for FASHION."

CHECK OUT: Arbaaz on a roll

Was that the reason why he consented to play the role of 'Makhi Singh' in DABANGG?

"Yes, I was in the film not because I was the producer but because I could see that I was the right choice for the role", says Arbaaz, "The character had to look convincing and believable. Still, the film wasn't made to salvage my career as an actor; it was done purely to enhance my credentials as a film maker. Now that it has happened, I can breathe easy."

Does this mean that in his future projects as a producer, he would always cast himself? "Not necessarily", comments Arbaaz before signing off.
