Dabangg 2 will roll not before early January 2012. There were reports that Salman is in a rush to begin work on the project, however Arbaaz who’s directing for the first time is in no hurry to begin the film.
Salman is on his way of completing his bro-in-law’s Bodyguard and then will start Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger. He doesn’t want to juggle too many films together.
A source close to the sequel reveals, “Arbaaz will start the Dabangg sequel in early 2012. Since he’s directing it, there are more responsibilities on him than the last time, and he doesn’t want to rush in unprepared. The sequel has to match upto Dabangg, and to ensure that, the director has to prep a lot.
The source adds, “Dabangg 2 will be a continuation of the first. The film will pick up where it ended and Salman, Sonakshi, Sonu Sood will make an appearance in the part 2 as well. Rest of the cast is being worked out. Arbaaz has got the first draft and he will start working on it. ”
Arbaaz confirms, “Yes, the sequel will start early next year. Salman will be giving the requisite dates. It’s too soon to comment on anything else.” TOI
