By Hindustan Times

MUMBAI, Nov. 9 -- When it comes to Salman Khan, pretty much anything he does grabs eyeballs. Now, he's come up with a way to ensure that his next release, Dabangg 2, gets all that attention too. The actor has decided to launch the first look of the film on Colors' reality show, Bigg Boss, which he currently hosts.

Today, producer-director Arbaaz Khan will shoot for the episode that will go on air on Saturday. The brothers will share the stage as they unveil the trailer of the sequel to Dabangg (2010).

A source says, "There will be lots of camaraderie between the two. They always have a good time together. You never know, maybe Salman will share anecdotes from the film's shoot as well." Arbaaz's wife Malaika Arora Khan, who is doing an item number in the film, may also make an appearance.

"This will be a perfect set-up for Salman, because he's taken the TV world by storm. Bigg Boss has got great reviews and people have been waiting for his next film too," says the source.

"Buzz about Malaika's dance number, another song called 'Fevicol' that features Kareena Kapoor and even about Salman Khan putting in extra work on his abs has been very strong," says the source. The initial plan was to launch the promo with Ajay Devgn's Son Of Sardaar, which will release on Diwali. But Salman has decided to share it with his TV audience before that.
