`Dabangg 2` isn`t same as `Dabangg`, says Salman

Mumbai: Superstar Salman Khan asserts that ‘Dabangg 2’ is not a copy of the first film and the audience should consider it as a movie after interval.

"It`s not the same. We are not copying and giving you the same picture. It`s a different film," the 47-year-old said here Friday.

"`Dabangg` was of a particular genre and now a similar genre film is coming out `Dabangg 2`," he said on the sets of "Bigg Boss 6" where he launched the item song "Fevicol se" from his new film "Dabangg 2".

The song features Kareena Kapoor.

"Consider part one (`Dabangg`) as the one before interval and this (`Dabangg 2`) as after the interval," he added.

Earlier, the actor launched the promo of the new film.

Asked why he chose to promote ‘Dabangg 2’ on ‘Bigg Boss’, he said: "I am the host of `Bigg Boss`. Wherever I get time and wherever the channel feels that `Dabangg 2` promotions can be done, they do it."

Directed by Arbaaz Khan, ‘Dabangg 2’ also features Sonakshi Sinha and is slated for a Dec 21 release.
