Often Hindi film sequels do not continue the storyline from the previous film. Films like Dhoom and Dhoom 2, Munna Bhai M.B.B.S and Lage Raho Munna Bhai, the Golmaal series, end up having different stories in each of their films.
However, for Dabangg 2, Arbaaz maintained that it is a genuine continuation from the 2010 film, Dabangg.
He said, "With sequels, you can either have continuation or it's like James Bond, where you have the same character in different situations. We are trying to follow the Rocky, Rambo mould where the characters remain the same. Dabangg 2 is a genuine continuation from the first film. We thought this was the correct way to do it."
An Arbaaz Khan Production's film, Dabangg 2 stars Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Prakash Raj,Vinod Khanna and Arbaaz Khan. It releases on December 21, 2012.
