Bollywood superstar Salman Khan says his brother Arbaaz does not want to direct Dabangg 3, and that they will find a "good director" for it.

Salman and his other brother Sohail have been busy promoting their forthcoming film Tubelight.

While Sohail has directed Salman in films like Auzaar, Jai Ho, Hello Brother and Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya, Arbaaz has directed Salman in only one movie Dabangg 2.

During a media interaction here on Tuesday, when Salman was asked about his favourite director among the two, he said, "Since Arbaaz doesn't want to direct, I feel Sohail is a better director because he is more patient and with Sohail, you can improvise on things but in a similar situation, Arbaaz panicks and his blood pressure starts to fluctuate.

"Now we are going to start Dabangg 3, so he (Arbaaz) told me 'Very good, but I am not going to direct it and I am only producing it'. So I said, 'Very good, we will find a good director for that'."

Talking about the process of choosing his films, Salman said, "I feel that when you listen to a script and if you are not able to see yourself in that space, then ideally no matter how beautiful the script is you should not do it, or then you have to work that hard to visually see yourself in the movie.

"Whenever a film-maker approaches me with a script, first thing is that, I need to see myself doing it and till the time it doesn't happen, I don't sign a movie. When Kabir Khan came to me with the script of Tubelight, I gradually started looking myself in that character."

Tubelight is releasing on June 23.
