We’re just over a week away from the release of Dabangg 3 and fans are obviously excited to see Salman Khan return in his Chulbul Pandey avatar. Like you’ve probably figured from the title, Dabangg 3 is the third instalment to the franchise and is one of the most awaited films of the year. So, as we inch closer and closer to the film’s release Salman Khan has made a revelation that is sure to get fans of the franchise even further.
In case you haven’t checked out the film’s trailer, Dabangg 3 is a prequel and explores the past of these iconic characters. During an interview with a leading daily, when Salman was asked what was the idea behind the prequel, Salman in his classic fashion replied that they’ve written Dabangg 4 as well. He said, “We have Dabangg 4 written too. They just come about. Sometimes, one film gives you an idea for the next. In Dabangg 3, we explore why Rajjo’s father was an alcoholic and how Chulbul met her. Aap jab picture dekhoge toh aapko samajh mein aayega kahan kahan se nikle hain hum. After two films, today, the minute I walk into the Dabangg set, I stop being Salman Khan, the actor, and become Chulbul Pandey. Ditto, Sonakshi who transforms instantly into Rajjo. That’s how it is with the whole cast; we’ve become a real family.”
Dabangg 3 will bring back the combination of Salman and Prabhu Deva after the2009 release Wanted. The film also features Kiccha Sudeep and debutante Saiee Manjrekar.
