Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha announce Dabangg 3
Salman Khan had recently announced that he will kick off work on brother Arbaaz Khan’s production Dabangg 3 soon after completing Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat that also features Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Jackie Shroff, Tabu and Sunil Grover.
While the Eid 2019 release is expected to wrap up by January, buzz is the third instalment of Dabangg will go on the floors immediately after.
Prabhudheva has taken over as director from Abhinav Kashyap and Arbaaz who directed parts one and two respectively.
On Monday, which marked eight years since the release of the first Dabangg film, the franchise’s leads, Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, announced that they are ready to hit the theatres next year with Part 3.
“Aaj 8 saal ho gaye Dabangg ko… thank u for all the appreciation and love from Rajjo and Chulbul Pandey… see u in Dabangg 3 next year,” the 52-year-old actor, who plays cop Chulbul Pandey in the comedy franchise, informed, while Sona, who made her debut with the film, chimed in, “Eight years of Dabangg, eight years of Chulbul and Rajjo, eight years of me doing what I love the most! Thank you Salman, Arbaaz, Abhinav for making me realise my calling… see you in Dabangg 3 next year!”
Dabangg released in September 2010, followed by a sequel in 2012. Mirror reached out to Arbaaz, who has produced the franchise, for details, but he chose not to respond, sharing Salman’s post online instead.
