Producer Suresh Babu, KLN Raju, Gemini Kiran and few others attended the launch function.
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."
