Dabangg 3: Salman Khan knew Saiee Manjrekar fits the bill for the film, says Arbaaz Khan
A film that has turned into a successful franchise for Salman Khan is Dabangg 3. Starring Salman as Chulbul Pandey, Dabangg series is the story of a Robinhood cop who everyone loves to hate.
The third instalment of the film is in the process of being shot and recently, there were reports that Salman’s film will mark as the debut for Mahesh Manjrekar’s daughter, Saiee. While Mahesh was extremely happy to know that Salman will be launching Saiee, it was his conviction that brought her on board.
In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, Arbaaz Khan spoke about Saiee’s debut in their film and how Salman was sure of her acting skills.
Arbaaz revealed that it was Salman who was sure of Saiee’s acting as the young, innocent girl that brought her on board the film. Arbaaz also stated that she will be seen playing Salman’s love interest in the prequel part of the film where Chulbul Pandey is seen as a young cop. While the young actress is excited, Arbaaz mentioned that it was her acting performance that helped convince them all.
Arbaaz said, “Salman has known Saiee for a while. He was sure she fits the bill perfectly as an innocent young girl and after seeing her perform, we know she’s exactly what we wanted for Dabangg 3.”
Meanwhile, the shooting of Dabangg 3 is 50-60 per cent complete and the remaining portions are being shot. The film will showcase two parallel time tracks in Chulbul’s life including his present and past. Arbaaz will be seen as Makhan Chand Pandey. Saiee will be a part of the past and Sonakshi Sinha will be part of the present. Sudeep will be seen in the film as the antagonist. Helmed by Prabhudheva, Dabangg 3 is slated to release on December 20, 2019.
