After Tubelight, Salman Khan is now busy with his upcoming Christmas release, Tiger Zinda Hai. The superstar seems to have his hands full with dates blocked for the next two years, thanks to many diverse projects in the pipeline.
One of his upcoming films that most fans are excited about, is undoubtedly Dabangg 3! The character, Chulbul Pandey, gathered much love with fans hoping to see his return since a while now. Recently, it was confirmed that Dabangg 3 is actually in the pipeline, with Salman still part of the film. Apart from that, he will also be seen in a film named, Bharat and Remo’s untitled dance film.
In an interaction with DNA newspaper, Salman opened up about the Dabangg franchise saying, “The script of it is ready. It’s going to start during Bharat, which is Atul and Alvira’s (Agnihotri) film that Ali (Abbas Zafar) is directing. That starts after Remo’s film. Atul’s film requires some gaps. So between the schedules for Atul’s film, I will shoot for Dabangg 3.” Wow! Talk about a packed schedule!
Salman went on to speak about the storyline saying, “The story starts with Dabangg 3 in the present and then it goes back to the past, and then comes back to the present day again. It will have a prequel portion, but only as a flashback.”
Elaborating further he said, “So it’s Chulbul Pandey now and then — what has gone on in his life before part one and two. The flashback will show how Chulbul Pandey actually became Chulbul Pandey. The remaining part will be about what he’s up to now.”
There had been rumours about Arbaaz not directing the film this time. Salman confirmed these saying, “He gets very hyper so we asked him to chill and take rest. He will produce the film this time.”
All this news about Dabangg is really building the excitement and we can’t wait to see Chulbul Pandey create magic again on the big screen!
