Answering to BollywoodLife, he said, “For the last seven years, I have been able to watch a lot of stuff other than these movies in the editing room. But when I get into airplanes, and I have to travel a lot, I like to catch up on movies, especially global cinema.” The Marvel Cinematic Universe director additionally said, “I remember reading about Dabangg so when I got into the plane, it was on there and I watched it and I loved it. I loved the camera work and the tone. It’s very entertaining. It reminded me of some of the work we did in Community”.
