To pay a tribute to him and share more details of Dabangg 3, Salman took to social media to share a video where he can be seen with the film’s cast and crew. In the video, he spoke about Vinod Khanna, who passed away in 2017, and how they missed him on the sets of Dabangg. Salman also mentioned Vinod Khanna’s brother Pramod Khanna, who is portraying the role of Prajapati Pandey in Dabangg 3.
Salman has been regularly sharing updates of the film to create a buzz among his fans. He will also be seen as a younger Chulbul Pandey in the film with Mahesh Manjrekar's daughter Saiee Majrekar playing his love interest.
Dabangg 3, directed by Prabhu Deva, is one of the most anticipated Bollywood movies of the last quarter of 2019 and is scheduled for release on 20th December. In the film, Sonakshi Sinha and Arbaaz Khan will be reprising their roles Rajjo (Chulbul’s wife) and Makhan Chand Panday (Chulbul’s brother), respectively. Meanwhile, South superstar Kiccha Sudeep has been roped in to play the antagonist. In an interview, he spoke about playing the villain’s role in Dabangg 3. He said, “I had to look bigger than him, and that was the biggest responsibility. Otherwise, it will look like he is hitting a child. He (Salman’s character) has to defeat a man who looks bigger and stronger than him, that’s when the hero will stand out. And, I think that was a challenge for me."
