UTV Motion Pictures has denied the reports, which claimed that it has acquired Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 2 rights. In his press release, the production house has clarified that it has not acquired the movie and the reports are baseless.
There were reports that UTV has bought the movie for Rs 140 crores.

We would like to clarify that UTV has not purchased the rights of the movie in question."
“We have been very open about announcing our new projects and communicated them to the media and will continue to do so. We hope this puts all speculations to rest," the statement said.
