Dabangg 3, the third installment of Salman Khan’s blockbuster cop franchise, is slated to hit the screens in December 2019. However, Salman is making sure fans receive regular updates before his character, ace cop Chulbul Pandey returns to the big screen. He has already shared a poster and a motion poster of the film, which has been directed by Prabhudeva and co-produced by Arbaaz Khan, who also plays Chulbul Pandey’s brother’s character in the movie. The makers of this highly-anticipated film are now planning to share a 90-second long teaser of the film on 1st October and as per reports, this teaser will also be attached to Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's upcoming action film War, releasing on 2nd October 2019.
There are also plans to release the film’s trailer, which will be three minutes long, during the festival of lights, Diwali. The trailer will also be linked to Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 4, slated for release on 25th October. A media report, quoting a trade source, revealed that this would be “a double treat for the superstar's fans” and that Salman “personally chose these movies, knowing that fans will flock to the theatres to catch up on the holiday releases, and it will, in turn, ensure maximum eyeballs for his actioner.”
The trailer will also share the look of the antagonist, Kannada star Kichcha Sudeep, and of Mahesh Manjrekar's daughter Saiee Manjrekar. In Dabangg 3’s teaser and trailer, Salman will also be seen in a new avatar, as a young Chulbul Pandey (in his 30s), with Saiee playing his love interest. Meanwhile, Sonakshi Sinha will once again share screen space with Salman, reprising her role as Rajjo, the older Chulbul Pandey’s wife. The previous two installments of Dabangg were massive successes at the box office due to their entertainment value and therefore, fans have very high expectations from Dabangg 3.
