The much-awaited action film Dabangg 3 is all set to hit the theatres on December 20 this year. But ahead of the film release, the makers will launch the trailer of Salman Khan starrer in Mumbai.
Actor Salman Khan on Wednesday launched the first trailer for the hotly anticipated Dabangg 3. The film serves as a sequel/prequel to the previous two films in the series, about a small-town cop who takes on a Robin Hood avatar. Salman was joined at the event by director Prabhudeva, and his co-stars, Sonakshi Sinha and Saiee Manjrekar.
Salman returns as Chulbul Pandey in the first trailer for Dabangg 3. The trailer introduces the dual love stories that play out in two timelines. Chulbul’s first girlfriend was apparently killed, which is maybe what made him want to be a cop in the first place. When the villain, played by Sudeep, returns to mess with Chulbul later in life, the Robin Hood cop decides to take revenge once and for all.
The first film in the franchise, released in 2010, was directed by Anubhav Kashyap and became a runaway success. The second film was released in 2012 and was directed by Salman’s brother, Arbaaz Khan. It was an even bigger hit. The third franchise will see Prabhudheva at the director’s chair. Salman and Prabhudeva have previously worked together in the 2009 film Wanted, Dabangg 3 is produced by Salman Khan Films and Arbaaz Khan Production. The movie is written by writers Dilip Shukla, Prabhu Deva, and Alok Upadhyay. The story is set in the State of Madhya Pradesh.
The cast of Dabangg 3 will see Vinod Khanna’s sibling Pramod (Prajapati Pandey), Sonakshi Sinha (Rajjo), Kiccha Sudeep (Balli) and Mahie Gill. According to reports, Arbaaz Khan will once again play Chulbul Pandey’s step-brother (Makkhi), while Dimple Kapadia’s character will return in a flashback sequence.
Saiee is actor Mahesh Manjrekar’s daughter, who likewise has a role in the Dabangg 3 movie. Mahesh Manjrekar had recently spoken about sharing screen space with Saiee with Mid-Day: “I reprise my role of Haria in the film. It’s a cameo that is there to establish Chulbul’s journey. I had one scene with Saiee and Salman, and it was wonderful to be in the same frame as my daughter. I felt proud and emotional.”
Dabangg 3 is said to tell the origin story of Inspector Chulbul Pandey, and like Salman’s recent film Bharat, will feature the actor in a younger avatar. He will face off in the film against Sudeep, who plays the villain.
The film Dabangg 3 will release on 20 December in Hindi, Kannada, Telugu, and Tamil.
