Vote for the best of Tollywood - 2012
Soon after the release of Gabbar Singh, it was reported that Salman Khan had watched the Telugu film and was impressed by Harish Shankar's screenplay. It was rumoured that he wanted to use some scenes including the antyakshari sequence in Dabangg 2. It was also rumoured that someone from his team had approached the Telugu producer for the same. But Bandla Ganesh Babu had denied the reports.
Now, a source from the production team of Gabbar Singh claims that they have come to know that the makers of Dabangg 2 have used antakshari, kabbadi game and a few sequences from the Telugu movie. The sources claim that the Bollywood producers have not taken permission from the Telugu producers.
When contacted Bandla Ganesh Babu, he says that he is not aware of this plagiarism. But the producer, who had to pay Rs 25 lakh to the Sippys for using the title Gabbar Singh, adds that he would look into the film Dabangg 2 and will take necessary steps if he finds anything copied by them.
