The Sampath Nandi directorial was expected to go on floors in 2013 but it did not happen. According to reports, "Gabbar Singh 2" is all set to roll on in the next few weeks, mostly by January end. While Pawan will be playing the male lead, the film's heroine is yet to be finalised. Several names including Pranitha and Asin popped up but so far there has been no confirmation on the same.

The buzz is that Pawan and the film's team is looking for a fresh talent to be cast as heroine in "Gabbar Singh 2." Apparently, the actor will be finalising the leading lady within a week. Details about the film's other cast members are also still awaited.
