Pawan Kalyan to produce Gabbar Singh 2
Pawan Kalyan has decided to turn producer.! The superstar will be producing the sequel to his blockbuster — Gabbar Singh (the official Telugu remake of the Salman-starrer Dabangg) — under his own banner, which he plans to launch with this film. Sources close to the actor say thatPawan Kalyan has decided to rejig the entire cast and crew for the film and plans to rope in a fresh team on board for the sequel. Harish Shankar, the director who wielded the megaphone for Gabbar Singh, might not direct the sequel due to his current commitments. Buzz also has it thatGabbar Singh 2 will not be a remake of Dabangg 2, but an original creation from Pawan Kalyan's production house.
A source close to the production unit, tells us, "Pawan Kalyan always wanted to play a character called Gabbar Singh. He even sported a similar Khaki-clad, irreverent cop avatar in the introductory scene of Gudumbar Shankar (2004). And when Salman's Dabangg released, Pawan decided to blend his idea of Gabbar Singh with Dabangg style. He created his own mannerisms and style for the official remake, which went on to become a box office hit. And now, he wants to recreate that magic in Gabbar Singh 2," says the source, adding that Pawan Kalyan will take the final call about the director, heroine and other cast and crew after finalising the script, which is being worked upon now.
Interestingly, Pawan Kalyan wanted to produce the first Gabbar Singh film too and had in fact, released the film's first look poster under his banner's name. However, things took a different turn and Bandla Ganesh, who made Teenmaar with Pawan, ended up producing the film.
