Salman Khan was thrilled with a lot of sequences in the Telugu and Tamil remake that were very original and distinct from Dabangg. “Bhai was of the opinion that the character of Gabbar Singh played by Pawan Kalyan had a lot of scenes which could be incorporated in the Dabangg sequel and there was no harm in plucking out the scenes from the remake in Telugu and using it in our sequel as they were very much in conjunction with the character of Chulbul Pandey,” said a source. So, Makhi alias Arbaaz Khan, who produced Dabangg, did not waste any time and bought the rights.
Hudd, Hudd Dabangg! But Gabbar Singh producer Ganesh vehemently denies being approached by Salman Khan’s team. “No one approached us for any scene or rights of our film Gabbar Singh. I was told that Salman expressed to his friends that our version has more entertaining scenes but no one from his family asked for any rights. Rumours about them incorporating scenes in Dabangg 2 are just baseless,” he said.
