Dabangg Sequel Finalized At Salman’s Eid Party On Saturday Night, Sonu Sood Will Play A Double RoleSeptember 15th, 2010 - 7:58 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
September 15, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): After All The Best, Gol Maal, and Partner, say hello to another serialized franchise. Yup, the Dabangg sequel is on for sure now. It was on the cards from even before the release of Dabangg when the film’s team had sensed the oncoming mass appeal of the ruralised hero Chulbul Pandey (Salman Khan). Producer Arbaaz Khan, who is at the moment laughing all the way to the bank, said, “Yes a sequel is definitely on the cards. And why just a sequel? The film and the main character has the potential to be carried forward through various channels.”
On Saturday evening, at an Eid party at Salman’s Bandra residence, attended by the Khan family and the Dabangg team- members (and for some inexplicable reason Aftab Shivdasani) the decision to go ahead with Dabangg 2 was locked in.
Super-charged by the roaring welcome given by audiences to Dabangg he suggested during the Eid party that the sequel should be done sooner than later.
Details were immediately discussed. And Abhinav Kashyap who will again direct, has been briefed on how the story goes forward. According to a source, the core cast of Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Sonu Sood will remain unchanged. But the plot will now move away from the UP hinterland into a large city, probably Mumbai.
Sonu Sood who plays the smalltown goon-politician will play a double role in the sequel. Sood’s character Chedi Singh will now have twin brother.
Confirming these developments Sonu Sood says, “Salman was the most charged person at his Eid party. We were all in a mood to celebrate. When Salman suggested we do the sequel, we started discussing it very seriously. I can’t reveal too many details at the moment. But yes my character, Chedi Singh, will have a twin brother in the sequel.”
Apparently Salman was kicked by the idea of a sequel even while the first part was being shot. During the shooting of a wedding sequence in Dabangg he loudly announced a sequel to the entire cast.
While other cast and crew details are yet to be finalized, Dabangg 2 will roll at year end. And yes, it will have another item song on par with Malaika Arora’s Munni badnaam hui.
