Everyone is eagerly awaiting the release of Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 which is the third outing in the Dabangg franchisee. The Dabangg series follow the story of a good-natured yet, mischievous cop Chulbul Pandey. Salman Khan took to his Instagram account to announce the introduction of a new actor in the Dabangg universe.
There was a great void left in the Dabangg universe, when Vinod Khanna, passed away in 2017. He had played Salman Khan’s father in both the Dabangg movies. But, Salman had a trick up his sleeve to show how someone could fit in Vinod Khanna’s shoes and who better than his own brother Pramod Khanna. The Dabangg actor along with Sonakshi Sinha and Prabhu Dheva took to his Instagram account to announce the inclusion of Pramod Khanna as Prajapati Pandey in Dabangg 3.
Dabangg 3 will see Salman Khan don the police uniform again and he will be seen opposite Sonakshi Sinha as in the previous movies. Salman , had once said that Dabangg is incomplete without Sonakshi. There were rumours of the inclusion of a love triangle in Dabangg 3, but Sonakshi has refuted the rumours.
Sonakshi Sinha spoke in an interview saying "No... speculations will be there, but of course, there will be a different story and this film will have new characters as we don't want to offer the same stuff to our audience. I feel it is going to be an amazing film."
Dabangg 3 will dwell deeper in the world of Chulbul Pandey through flashbacks and Salman has started prepping for those portions. To play the younger version of Chulbul Pandey, Salman will be shedding a lot of weight and he already working on his look and body frame.
A source close to the film told Mumbai Mirror, "In the flashback portions, Chulbul is a man in his 20s, and Salman has been hitting the gym to get the required look." As per reports, not Sonakshi but another actress will feature in flashback scenes.
Dabangg will hit the screens in December 2019.
