He has reassured us that the storyline is nowhere near a repeat of what was shown in the first instalment of the franchise. “It’s not the same. We are not copying and giving you the same picture. It’s a different film.Dabangg was of a particular genre and now a similar genre film is coming out Dabangg 2. Consider part one (Dabangg) as the one before interval and this (Dabangg 2) as after the interval.”
Salman made this statement whilst hosting ‘Big Boss.’ He also used the show to launch the music video to ‘Fervicol Se,’ an item number that is performed by Kareena Kapoor in the film.
