Rumours are doing the round that "Gabbar Singh 2", sequel to the 2012-blockbuster "Gabbar Singh", has been shelved. The Pawan Kalyan starrer was expected to hit floors in January, but was postponed. The delay in the film's shoot and the announcement of Pawan's presence in "Oh My God" remake has apparently led to speculations that "Gabbar Singh 2" is shelved.
However, sources close to the actor have rubbished the rumours of the film being shelved. According to them, the script work for "Gabbar Singh 2" is not yet completed and this has caused a delay in starting the film. The shooting of the Pawan starrer will start from April, according to CineJosh.
According to 123telugu, there are talks going on to hold puja ceremony for the film in the last week of February or in the first week of March. However, there is no official confirmation in this regard.
"Gabbar Singh 2" will be directed by Sampath Nandi and will be produced by Sharath Marar, a close friend of Pawan. While the Power Star will play the male lead, the film's team is still in search for the female lead. Details about the other cast members are also not yet available.
Music composer Devi Sri Prasad will reportedly be working on the soundtracks of the film.
"Gabbar Singh 2" is one of the most-awaited films of 2014, as it involves Pawan Kalyan - one of the biggest stars of south cinema. The actor is on a roll following the success of last year's release "Attarintiki Daredi", which is deemed as the industry hit in the Telugu film industry.
Expectations are high for "Gabbar Singh 2", as the film's prequel turned out to be a blockbuster in 2012. "Gabbar Singh" was the remake of Bollywood film "Dabangg" and just like the original version, the Telugu remake was well received. A sequel to "Dabangg" has already come and the film turned out to be a big hit. However, "Gabbar Singh 2" will not have the same story as the Hindi sequel and will have a fresh script.
