And yes, so is Salman Khan’s trademark Chulbul moustache.
Contrary to earlier plans, there will be no scaling down in Chulbul Pandey audacity, precociousness and cockiness just because he is now a householder.
According to sources the scriptwriter Dilip Shukla’s initial plans of sobering down Chulbul Pandey’s personality was effectually quashed by producer-director Arbaaz Khan.
Says the source, "Shukla was in favour of sobering down Chulbul Pandey in keeping with his married status. But Arbaaz knocked the proposal down. Everyone in the team including Salman felt Chulbul Pandey’s USP was his brattiness and arrogance. So the move to scale down Salman’s sassy attitude has been cut down."
The change, if any, would occur in Sonakshi’s character. Since the main characters are now moving to a larger town in UP, namely Lucknow and Kanpur, Sonakshi will no longer be the gaon ki gori that she was in the first film.
Is the director Arbaaz Khan nervous?
Arbaaz says he spent almost a year on the script. "I wanted to get the script right. We had to make sure we were moving ahead and not just cashing in on a brand name. Luckily I’ve a fresh enthusiastic team to support me and God willing, Dabangg 2 will be even bigger than Dabangg."
