Salman Khan’s Chulbul Pandey becomes more corrupt in ‘Dabangg 2’

After the shoot his Ek Tha Tiger gets over, Salman Khan will face the camera for Dabangg 2, the much anticipated sequel to the 2010 blockbuster Dabangg that had Salman playing the corrupt cop Chulbul Pandey.

Now, in the sequel, to be directed by Arbaaz Khan, Chulbul Pandey doesn’t mend his ways but, on the contrary, becomes more corrupt. This time, he operates not from Lalganj, but from Mumbai, which means heftier bribes but also bigger troubles.

Those expecting another showdown between Sonu Sood and Salman Khan might be disappointed as Sonu Sood isn’t part of the sequel. The villain is now played by Prakash Raj, seen in Singham and Wanted.

However, the sequel will repeat the actors Vinod Khanna (as Chulbul’s father), Arbaaz Khan (as brother) and Sonakshi Sinha (as his wife and love). Salman Khan has disclosed that Dabangg 2 will have an interesting romantic track between Chulbul and Rajjo.

Dabangg 2 will release on Christmas in 2012.

Salman Khan is presently shooting in Cuba for Ek Tha Tiger with Katrina Kaif. He will soon make a visit to the US to get medically checked up for Trigeminal Neuralgia for which he underwent a surgery last year. The doctors will reportedly try to figure out how big the aneurysm is.
