Most of the Indians listed the songs of this movie as their favorites. This Salman Khan's movie's song has been successful also in overseas areas. According to the sources, the song has entered the Guinness book of world records in a record attempt in Melbourne and has created history.

The girl who raised to stardom from her first movie itself, the Dabangg girl, daughter of Shatrughn Sinha, Sonakshi Sinha wanted to be a fashion designer at first but her fate was what got her into movies. Recently, she was in New Delhi and there she was talking to the media. She said "I had no intention of entering the film industry. It is only a co-incidence that I am here. Actually, I was undertaking a course of fashion designing and wanted to go through in that only."
Sonakshi also said that the decision of her entry in the industry was unanimous and the family had approved her before the entry. After the super hit movie Dabangg, Sonakshi is now getting some good roles and movies but she is very aware about the roles she takes. She says "First of all, the script must be really catchy and attracting. At last, it is a question of one's carreer."
Dabur India has made her the brand ambassador for it's product, Fem Bleach. Related to the films, she didn't disclose any project she's attempting. However, she did admit that she will be doing a role in Race 2. News is also roaming around that she might be in a movie opposite Kamal Hassan, but she didn't talk about that.

"I learn a lot from my dad. Actually, I learn from him everyday." she said.
Bollywood Dabangg, Salman Khan also fears something now. This fearless personality on screen has now started to fear something. What is it?? The secret is out now!! It is on screen stunts. Salman has accepted that nowadays he is afraid if any director tell him that he has to jump off a cliff or something similarly dangerous. He is afraid of possible bone breakages. He says "These stunts are very dangerous and risky. If due to any flaw in the planning, I get my bones in pieces, it will be very difficult for me to pass 3-4 months in hospital".
Dabangg Khan had recently shot for a new advertisement of the famous cold drink company "Mountain Dew" in which he had to jump freely from a height of 3000 metres. This advertisement clip is out now and can be easily spotted on the television. But, for Sallu, the shot was not easy to give. He had to wear special Wing Coat for the shooting and also he had to take some training beforehand. A special trainer was hired from New Zealand to give him this pre-shoot training.
Dabangg Khan, personally likes the stunt scenes given by Deepika Padukone and he also is a big fan of the stunts of Hollywood actor, Charles Cruize.
Now, you people have to decide- "Darr Ke Aage Dabangg Hai??" or "Dabangg Ke Aage Darr hai??".
Speculation is rife as to why Abhinav Kashyap, the highly successful director of the 2010 blockbuster Dabangg, refused to direct a potential hit Dabangg 2 and walked out on Arbaaz Khan. If Bollywood grapevine is to be believed, Abhinav is planning to make a movie with SRK and there have been hush-hush meetings between the two.
Trashing this piece of information as a rumour, Abhinav says there is no movie lined up with SRK and that he walked out of Dabangg 2 because he is in the process of writing another story and negotiating with several people on this film. An announcement will be made after full preparations. According to him, Arbaaz may feel ditched, but he knows the film inside out and is the best person to direct it himself. As for me, I don’t want to be called a one-film-wonder, if unfortunately Dabangg 2 flops.
But was refusing the movie just by sending an SMS to Arbaaz correct? According to Abhinav, it really didn’t matter and they spoke to each other afterwards. Abhinav claims that Arbaaz has understood his need to move on and their relations remain as cordial.
