The much-awaited Pawan Kalyan's "Gabbar Singh 2" is all set to go on floors in December.
Anisha Ambrose, who made her debut in "Alias Janaki," has been roped in to play the female lead opposite the power star. The Telugu-speaking actress was chosen after several rounds of audition.
"#Gabbarsingh2 all set to roll in December. Story conceived by #Pawankalyan. K.Ravindra (Bobby) to direct. Anisha Ambrose is the Heroine," producer Sharath Marar, a friend and close associate of Pawan Kalyan, tweeted.
The film will also have Bramhanandam, Ali and Narra Srinu, while more people will be added to the cast in the coming days. Pawan's favourite "Antakshari" gang will also be part of "Gabbar Singh 2."
The film will be a complete commercial entertainer with loads of action, romance and humour. It will neither be a prequel nor a sequel to the 2012-blockbuster "Gabbar Singh" and will have a fresh story instead.
"Gabbar Singh 2, with no resemblance to either Dabangg or Gabbar Singh, would be a wholesome entertainer and will turn out to be yet another independent and entertaining film," stated a press release.
Earlier, Sampath Nandi was roped in to helm the project, but it was getting delayed as Pawan was busy with his other commitments including his political foray. Nandi has moved on and has announced his next project with Ravi Teja, while "Power" director KS Ravindra (aka Bobby) will be directing "Gabbar Singh 2." Pawan has conceived the story of "Gabbar Singh 2" and it is expected to be as entertaining as "Gabbar Singh."

The shooting of "Gabbar Singh 2" will commence in December and the team is planning to release the film in May 2015.
Pawan is currently busy with the shooting of "Gopala Gopala," a remake of critically-acclaimed Hindi film, "Oh My God."
The actor will be sharing screen-space with Venkatesh in the satirical comedy, which also has Shriya Saran and Mithun Chakraborty in supporting roles. Venkatesh will be playing a shop-owner in the film, while Pawan will be appearing as Lord Krishna.
The film's shooting is progressing and is expected to be completed soon. It is likely to hit the screens in January 2015.
