Sources from the industry reveal that the characterisation of Police Gabbar Singh remains the same, but it will be more of a reboot. Addressing the launch event, Sharath Marar said, "Currently, the scripting of Gabbar Singh 2 is in progress. This is not a sequel to Gabbar Singh. Rather it has a fresh story. Today, we have officially launched the film and its regular shooting will start from April. We are planning to release it during Dussera festival."
