'Dabangg 3' Release Date Announced
Chulbul Pandey is back! Salman Khan shared the first poster of the third sequel of the Dabangg franchise on his social media accounts. Along with the poster is the release date of the film. Dabangg 3 will release on December 20 this year.
The poster depicts Salman in his cop uniform. He captioned the poster, “Chulbul is back….. #Dabangg3 @aslisona @arbaazkhanofficial @nikhildwivedi25 @prabhudheva @skfilmsofficial.”
This will be the first Dabangg film after 2012’s Dabangg 2. The threequel is being directed by Prabhudeva. He also directed Salman Khan’s Wanted.
Salman’s brother Arbaaz Khan, who directed the last movie in the series and is co-producing Dabangg 3, said in an interview, “I was very surprised when I went on the first day of the shoot. Salman has done a lot of work after Dabangg 2. It has been seven years, but the moment he put on that moustache and gave the first shot, I thought this man lives this character. He just lives it.”
He added, “It didn’t take him a second to get the same attitude and dialect. It was perfect. I was like, ‘Wow, this guy has made this character his own’.”
Arbaaz Khan also said he is “conscious” of fan anticipations in context to the series and Salman’s character Chulbul. He said, “We know this is a very loved franchise and Chulbul Pandey is a very loved character. We know that there is a big loyalty base. We will leave no stone unturned to make the audience feel that they have got something fresh, new and exciting. We are very conscious of it.”
Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz Khan and Mahie Gill will reprise their roles from Dabangg 2. Notably, the first Dabangg was released in 2010 and was directed by Abhinav Kashyap.
