Pawan Kalyan actually bought the remake rights to 'Dabaang,' but later permitted the producer Bandla Ganesh to make the movie, so that the producer could recover from the losses incurred due to the flop of 'Theenmaar'.

"Gabbar Singh" created a new opening day box office record and subsequently created new records for the highest grossing weekend and highest grossing first week in the Telugu film industry. It also stands amongst highest openers ever in the Indian film industry

After breaking many records at the box office, this action-oriented comedy was later dubbed in Hindi as 'Policewala Gunda'.

The film is an adaptation of the 2010 Hindi film Dabangg.
