With ‘Tubelight’, Salman Khan finally lost the winning streak of the most bankable actor on the box-office. The movie, in spite of large-scale promotion on digital and social media, fell face first with a collection of only Rs. 98 crore. However, bhai has nothing to worry about as he is ready to come back with yet another installment of his hit ‘Dabangg’ franchise, ‘Dabangg 3’.
Salman is busy with one project after another for now but the script of ‘Dabangg 3’ is ready.
He informed in an interview with DNA,
The script of Dabangg 3 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.
There have been reports that this installment will be a prequel to ‘Dabangg’ which will explain the making of Inspector Chulbul Pandey into the Robinhood of his area. Salman explains the plot line of the story and gives out some major details.
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.
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.
Talking about his brother, and director of the movie, Arbaaz Khan, Salman informs that Arbaaz is taking a step back from the responsibility.
He gets very hyper so we asked him to chill and take rest. He will produce the film this time.
Sonakshi Sinha has appeared in both ‘Dabangg’ movies. Veteran actor, Vinod Khanna, who recently passed away, played the role of Chulbul Pandey’s step-father. ‘Dabangg 3’ is coming back but with a number of changes. Now, it will be interesting to see if the franchise will be able to retain the charm.
