DABANGG 2 is a continuation of the amazing exploits of Chulbul 'Robin Hood' Pandey played by Salman Khan. The notable facets of the character include his nonchalance, his wry sense of humor and his tongue-in-cheek dialogues.
This film begins with Chulbul (Now married to Rajjo- Sonkashi Sinha) moving on from being a local inspector in a small town Laalganj to becoming an Inspector-in-charge of Bajariya Thana, a police station in Kanpur, the largest and most populous city in Uttar Pradesh. After arriving in Kanpur, Chulbul immediately gets into action thus bringing him in conflict with Baccha Bhaiyya (Prakash Raj).
Salman Khan as Chulbul Pandey: Chulbul is a 'dabangg' (fearless) cop who believes in coming down with a heavy hand on crime and criminals. The self-proclaimed 'Robinhood' continues to rob from the rich and give to the poor. Chulbul works hard to strengthen the family ties with his stepfather and half-brother. And romance his newly wed wife.
Sonakshi Sinha as Rajjo Pandey: Rajjo is Chulbul's soul-mate. She matches up to his antics and is sometimes a step ahead of him. A dutiful daughter-in-law, a caring sister-in-law, she nurtures the Pandey household. As any expectant mother would she eagerly awaits the arrival of Junior Pandey.
Arbaaz Khan as Makhanchand 'Makhi' Pandey: Makkhanchand Pandey continues in his dim-witted ways. In his wife Nirmala's absence he finds himself lost and thus ends up being a butt of a lot of jokes.
Vinod Khanna as Prajapati Pandey: Pandeyji now becomes 'Papa', the patriarch of the Pandey clan. Chulbul and he finally bond as father and son. Like any father he looks out for Chulbul and the family even if it means chastising Chulbul.
Prakash Raj as Baccha Bhaiya: Baccha Bhaiyya is a criminal turned politician. Crafty and calculative. He has his eyes set on the big prize - winning the forthcoming elections. His desire to go legit is stronger than everything, he is clear anything that comes in his way will be destroyed.
Nikitan Dheer as Chunni: Younger Brother of Bachcha Bhaiya, tall but short tempered, he Speaks less but observes everything, his only wish to create problem for the poor people.
Deepak Dobriyal as Genda: Younger brother of Bachcha Bhaiya, he is very arrogant and hot temperamnetal, his weakness is girls and always feels proud about his family... one fine day he challenges Chulbul Pandey one to one and faces the consequnces...?
