Sonu Sood back in Dabangg 2?

By now it is common knowledge that no one says no to Salman Khan. It’s also well-known among his close friends and family that Salman expects complete loyalty from them. And this could mean making professional compromises as well.

Given his emotional approach to his friends, one isn’t surprised to hear that Salman has “requested” (read: ordered) Sonu Sood to march right back into Dabangg 2.

Sonu, it would be recalled, had politely declined the offer to continue his association with the Dabangg brand. On a suggestion made by Salman, Sonu was supposed to play his character Cheddi Singh’s twin brother in Dabangg 2. But then, the Dabangg 2 script brought in another arch-villain to be played by Prakash Raj. That’s when Sonu decided to gently get out of the way.

But now Salman wants him back. According to sources Salman feels Sonu Sood is integral to the Dabangg franchise. Apparently, when he heard that Sonu had opted out and that Arbaaz had decided to write Sonu’s role out of Dabangg 2, Salman was none too pleased.

However, as other components of Dabangg 2 began to fall into place, Salman began to feel Sonu must be part of the sequel.

Says a friend of Sonu Sood, “Salman asked Sonu to return to Dabangg at his birthday bash in Panvel last week. This happened in front of Arbaaz, Sohail and a whole lot of other people. Sonu was embarrassed. He didn’t know what to say because this was not the first time Salman had asked him. Earlier in Hyderabad Salman had broached the subject, saying Dabangg wouldn’t be the same if the two of them -Salman and Sonu-didn’t share a climax fight. Sonu loves Salman to death. But at this juncture of his career Sonu isn’t sure if he wants to do a marginal part when he has a solo-hero film Maximum ready for release. However for Salman, Sonu would agree to return to Dabangg.”

We probed a little more and discovered that the real reason for Salman’s keenness to get Sonu Sood back into Dabangg is the bare-chested fistfight at the end.

Says a source, “Salman can’t do that with Prakash Raj, for obvious reasons.”
