For some security reasons, Salman has now decided not to shoot in Lucknow city for his upcoming movie Dabangg 2.
The security reasons are not for himself only but for his entire unit and the local people. It is also said that the administration of Uttar Pradesh have advised not to bring Salman for shooting in Lucknow and Kanpur.
Thus there was decision taken to shoot with the rest of cast in UP but the locals would be quite anticipated to watch for their hero Salman in person and his absence might cause more violence. Arbaaz when contacted about this issue he said that Salman will be joining the cast for the shoot of climax and they didn't brought him here. He will directly be meeting them in Satara.
He further said that they had to shoot outdoors of Lucknow Guerrilla style with some hidden cameras as the locals were hoping to see Salman on the sets and thus they had to shoot secretly only as Salman's fan might have jumped on them to watch Salman in shooting.
Arbaaz further said that they will just enter Kanpur secretly and will quickly wrap up the shooting there as well for the same reason.
