This year, if there is one film that has all of us excited and pumped then it has to be, inarguably, Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3. And the wait won’t be too long as the film will hit the screens in December 2019.
While the shooting of the film kick-started in Maheshwar, the second schedule is being filmed in Mumbai.
In the film, it is being reported that Salman Khan will be seen playing the role of a young Chulbul Pandey and to play the role of a 20 something boy, Salman Khan will shed weight and when Sonakshi Sinha aka Rajjo was quizzed about the same, she said, “It does go into the prequel. I am gonna keep the rest of it under wraps for now and not give out too much information. Yes, it's a prequel as well. Yes, he works so hard and it's so inspiring to see that.”
Talking about the film, and how different it is going to be from its earlier two installments, Sonakshi said, “It has to be different otherwise why will we make the same film again. It is different.
The thing with Dabanggis that with every part, we give the audience something new. Because, of course, the characters have been so accepted and so loved like Chulbul, Rajjo, Makkhi, everyone. The characters remain the same; it's just that what is happening around them keeps changing.”
A few days back, it was announced that Vinod Khanna’s brother, Pramod Khanna will be playing the role of Chulbul Pandey’s stepfather Prajapati Pandey.
Earlier the role of Prajapati Pandey was portrayed by Vinod Khanna however, the actor passed away on 27th of April in 2017 and therefore, the makers decided to rope in his brother to play the role. Post Dabangg 3, Salman Khan will start shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah opposite Alia Bhatt.
