The story carries on from the previous film— Inspector Chulbul Pandey— in charge of a local police station in Kanpur and resides there with his wife Rajjo, half brother Makkhi and stepfather. A boy gets kidnapped from a school, therefore Chulbul deals with the problem. In Kanpur, an assassin murders a witness who is about to testify against a dreaded don. Chulbul tracks the assassin down, killing him at a coffeehouse. The don is Thakur Bachcha Singh, a struggling politician. After several public altercations, Bachcha’s brother Genda convinces him to get rid of Pandey, threatening Chulbul’s stepfather to kill his entire family if Chulbul keeps on interfering in Bachcha’s criminal activities.

Genda harasses a girl, arriving at her wedding to kidnap her. Chulbul arrives at the wedding and asks Genda to leave. Genda refuses to comply and continues to insult Chulbul. Chulbul breaks his neck, leading to his death. In the meantime, his wife becomes pregnant, Pandey being advised by everybody to leave Bachcha alone for the sake of his family’s safety. Bachcha, promising to avenge his brother’s death, decides to do so before the election. He meets Rajjo and Makkhi while they are leaving a temple where Makkhi is shot by Bachcha, and Rajjo is pushed off the temple stairs. However, both of them survive, with Rajjo having a miscarriage and suffering a head injury.

Chulbul is enraged at the loss of his first child. He enters Bachcha’s location and kills all of his men. He fights him and gets him arrested, but when Bachcha tries to threaten him, he kills him instantly by grabbing a gun and shooting him with two bullets in the chest. Later, Chulbul and Rajjo have their first child, a baby boy. Right at the end, Chedi Singh’s photographer (from the first film, Dabangg) arrives, asking for a family photo. They all laugh, and the photographer takes the picture.-Wikipedia

About Dabangg 2 Movie:

Dabangg 2 is a sequel to Dabangg (2010), and the second installment of Dabangg series. The third film in the franchise, Dabangg 3, was released in December 2019.

When director Abhinav Kashyap opted out of directing the sequel, Arbaaz Khan himself decided to helm the film.

Prakash Raj was confirmed to have been chosen to play the main villain.

Kareena Kapoor has chosen to play an item number in the film, despite initial reports considering Katrina Kaif for the role.

In Feb 2012, it was reported that distribution rights were sold to UTV Motion Pictures for a price of ₹ 1.40 billion, the highest for a Bollywood film till date. But later UTV Motion Pictures reported the news as completely fake & nonsense. UTV Motion Pictures has brushed aside rumours of purchasing the rights of the sequel to Salman Khan-Sonakshi Sinha starrer, Dabangg 2 for ₹ 1.40 billion.

The national emblem framed on the wall of Chulbul Pandey’s police station was depicted incorrectly. Sensitive to the slightest abnormality pertaining to national sentiments, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has asked producer-director Arbaaz Khan to simply blur the corner of the film’s frames where the national emblem appears.

Shooting for the film began in March 2012. The producers announced plans to shoot the film in Kanpur. A set depicting the city of Kanpur was created at the Kamalistan Studios in Mumbai, where the first schedule of the film was shot.

Dabangg 2 was produced on a budget of ₹560 million; ₹170 million were spent on marketing costs of the film.

Dabangg 2 was released on 3500 screens in India and 450 screens overseas on 21 December 2012. The film was made on a budget of ₹650 million (US$8.1 million) including prints and advertising. This figure does not include Salman Khan’s fee which can go as high as the budget of the film itself. Dabangg 2 had the highest screen count for any film in India and worldwide, surpassing that of Ek Tha Tiger. The trailers for Kai Po Che! and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag were released with Dabangg 2.
