Salman Khan returned to Mumbai on Tuesday morning after finishing Da-Bangg The Tour. And already Sohail Khan is planning the second tour to the United Kingdom. Makes sense as it has a huge Indian expat community. And yes, it will be in 2017! London is obviously on the list. And for Round 2 also, other actors will feature alongside Dabangg Khan.
Most of the actors from the first leg of the show — Daisy Shah, Bipasha Basu, Prabhu Dheva, Sonakshi Sinha, Maniesh Paul and Badshaah —will be part of the UK tour (depending on their availability).
Says a source, “Spurred by the highly successful Da-Bang shows in Hong Kong, Auckland and Melbourne, Salman and Sohail are planning to bring the Da Bang tour to the United Kingdom in mid-August. The show, which will be called Da-Bangg Again, is expected to be held in London and Manchester and may also include other stars who were not part of the tour this time. This would be Salman’s first appearance in the UK after 26 years.” The last time the actor had performed in London was with Amitabh Bachchan for the Jumma Chumma show (1991).”
Sohail Khan says, “It feels good, and we feel very fortunate with the response that we got on the tour. People came in huge numbers and were very interactive, so yes we are encouraged to do more shows now — where and when, is to be figured out. We are very happy with the turn out. The team might change according to countries we perform in, and depending on the actors date availability also.”
Earlier this year Sohail, who is scripting and directing the shows, had mentioned that Salman wants to interact with people globally for the next couple of years and travel a lot performing on shows. The brothers would be planning to travel to UK, USA and Canada this year and South Africa and the Middle East in 2018. In India, too, Kolkata and Pune were being marked as show cities where the Da-Bang team would perform.
