Mumbai, Dec 18 (): Usually, Salman Khan’s films release during Eid, but “Dabangg 2” is all set to release on December 21, 2012 to give a grand treat to Salman fans on Christmas and New Year holidays. Last Salman film, which released during Christmas is his debut film “Maine Pyar Kiya”.
In Dabangg 2, Salman Khan will appear in his popular avatar of Chulbul Pandey whereas Sonakshi Sinha plays Rajjo, his wife. Prakash Raj is doing the villain role.
Salman’s brother and producer Arbaaz Khan has directed the film, while the music is scored by duo Sajid-Wajid. There are five songs in the film. Kareena Kapoor has performed an item number “Fevicol se”. This song is choreographed by Farah Khan and Salman also features in this song.
While the story of ‘Dabangg’ revolved around a village, with the rustic flavour of Uttar Pradesh, the story of Dabangg 2 is set around a posh metropolitan city.
Dabangg 2 is made at a budget of approximately Rs.50 crore; the film is likely to release in over 3,000 screens.
‘Dabangg’ was released in 2010; since its release, the movie and Chulbul Pandey have created a buzz in the Bollywood film industry. With its great run, the movie broke many box-office records. So, there are a lot of expectations with its sequel ‘Dabangg 2′. But, we have to wait till December 21 to see whether the movie will be able to create the same magic as ‘Dabangg’ at the box office.
Salman has been giving blockbusters continuously one after the other, from Dabangg in 2010, Ready and Bodyguard in 2011 and Ek tha Tiger in 2012. Ek tha Tiger was released during Eid of this year, which collected 180 crores. This collection had been enormous for any Hindi language film, so the expectations are very high over “Dabangg 2”. The movie is expected to break all records of his previous films and gross 200 crores.
