Mumbai: Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg’ was 2010’s undisputed blockbuster that gave a new dimension to the star’s career. And the super success of the desi flick made the filmmakers think of making its sequel. But here’s some bad news for all those who were desperately looking forward to seeing ‘Dabangg’s’ franchise.

Buzz has it that ‘Dabangg’ 2’ might get delayed. Salman Khan’s brother Arbaaz Khan will be directing the film.

Arbaaz says, "I need time. The project is at the ideating stage. We need to crack an idea for the sequel and then carry the project forward from there. I don`t want to take any chances. So we`ve called off the shooting of Dabangg 2 that was scheduled to start in December 2011 and will start shooting only in March 2012."

As for the reasons behind film being postponed, Arbaaz said, "The period between November and February is full of festivals. Besides, there is Salman`s birthday in December. All this means several breaks, which will hamper the creative process."

"Why would I want to rush it? I`ve nothing to prove. We`ll start when we`re ready. I have taken Salman`s dates in March. By then we`ll have everything in place.”, Arbaaz added.
While Arbaaz is busy working on other areas, the hunt for an item song is already on. They need an item number of same capacity as ‘Munni Badnaam’ to keep the brand mark going strong with the sequel too.

AZ has asked five different composers to draft a song one of which will be taken in the film finally.

Well..we are sure the ‘Dabangg’ sequel will be worth all the wait by the fans !
