Arbaaz Khan sues Pawan Kalyan on ‘Sardaar Gabbar Singh’

Pawan Kalyan’s upcoming release Sardaar Gabbar Singh has left Arbaaz Khan fuming. Salman Khan‘s brother found glaring similarities between the South flick and his film ‘Dabangg 2’. The trailer of Pawan Kalyan film had Salman’s fans pointing towards the similarities between it and ‘Dabangg 2’ and now the makers too have noticed that it is a rip off of the blockbuster.

Sources said, “Arbaaz khan has sent a legal notice to Kalyan for copying the concept of ‘Dabangg 2’ for ‘Sardaar Gabbar Singh’. ‘Gabbar Singh’ too was a remake of ‘Dabangg’ which had Salman and Sonakshi Sinha in lead. But when the sequel to the Telugu movie was announced, Kalyan had made it clear that the second one will be nothing like ‘Dabangg 2’. The actor wrote the film himself and even instructed his team to not copy anything from ‘Dabangg 2’.”

The sources added, “Arbaaz recently got to know that the film is exactly like ‘Dabangg 2’. The makers of ‘Sardaar Gabbar Singh’ haven’t bought rights of ‘Dabangg 2’, since they announced the film is going to have an original story. Now, when Arbaaz got to know he tried to get in touch with the makers and when he didn’t get a favourable response, he decided to send a legal notice to the makers.”

‘Sardar Gabbar Singh’ will be releasing on April 8, 2016.
