One of the biggest money-spinners of last decade, Dabangg is almost certain to have a sequel that will release in 2012. There have been several rumours doing the rounds and here on this page, we have all the latest on the much awaited sequel.
The film, quite obviously, will once again star Salman Khan as Chulbul Pandey. The actor is also keen to have the same actors in the sequel – Sonakshi Sinha will play his wife, Sonu Sood will play the villian and Arbaaz Khan will once again play his brother.
How will Sonu Sood return in Dabangg 2, when his character was killed in the climax of Dabangg? If you do not know the answer, you haven’t been watching too many Hindi films in the past. Sonu has a twin brother, who looks exactly like him and will return to avenge the death of his brother!
Moving on, the director hasn’t been confirmed just yet. There were rumours recently that Sohail Khan could be directing Dabangg 2 as Abhinav Kashyap (director of Dabangg) has chosen to direct SRK in a masala potboiler instead. But all those rumours have been put to rest by the director himself, who has confirmed that he will be directed the sequel and the SRK project will not happen in the near future, as the actor is yet to lock a script.
So to sum it up..
- Movie: Dabangg 2
- Starcast: Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz Khan, Sonu Sood.
- Director: Abhinav Kashyap
- Producer: Arbaaz Khan
- Action director: Salman is likely to hire a Thai stunt director to choreograph stunts that have never been witnessed in Indian cinema before!
- Music: Sajid – Wajid (most likely)
- Shooting: Expected to begin in December 2011
- Dabangg 2 Release Date: Late 2012
What remains to be seen
- If Malaika Arora Khan will return in the sequel with a raunchy item number
- The budget and expectations will be much higher, so can Salman & co pull it off? If they do, the Dabangg franchisee could pose a real threat to two of Bollywood’s biggest franchisee’s Dhoom and Golmaal.
Update from the producer Arbaaz Khan: Salman has given bulk dates from December 2011 and whoever cannot allot dates that match Salman’s, will be replaced for the sequel. I don’t want to reveal much, but as of now can only say that, Salman’s character Chulbul Pandey will be moving from the rustic village environment to the city. Dabangg 2 will be set in a city but Chulbul Pandey will be the same, his character will not change!
