He will not reprise Cheddi Singh in the Telugu version of Dabangg
We hear that Sonu Sood has rejected an offer to play the villain Cheddi Singh in the Telugu remake of Dabangg. The Telugu version, titled Gabbar Singh, has Pawan Kalyan in the lead role.
The makers of the film wanted Sonu to reprise his much acclaimed role of Cheddi Singh for the Telugu version too but Sonu, who is already reprising the role for the Tamil version, is unable to do so. Insiders suggest that the actor did not make the choice for himself but his date sheet was so crammed that he had no dates to allot to the new venture. Meanwhile the makers of Gabbar Singh are on the lookout for a new villain and they will possibly select Prakash Raj. But for now the Pawan Kalyan-Shruti Haasan starrer is left with a big chhed (void) in its cast.
