Salman Khan‘s Dabangg 3 has been in the news for the longest time, however, Arbaaz Khan who directed the first two parts maintained that he is still on the scripting stage and is yet to lock dates.
However, according to the latest buzz, Dabangg 3 might release on December 9, two weeks before Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero, which is slated to release on December 22. “SRK and Salman are close friends. And the latter doesn’t want the business of either film to be affected,” a source said.
Salman will reportedly begin shooting for the cop drama by the end of April. A source informed a leading daily, “Once Salman gives his nod, the shooting is likely to begin. Most probably, he will start filming within a month.” Salman will be returning to India post wrapping up Race 3 in Abu Dhabi by April 5.
In an earlier interview, Salman while speaking about his character Chulbhul said, “So, it’s about Chulbul Pandey now and then what went on in his life before part one and two. The flashback will show how he became what he is. The remaining part will be about what he’s up to now.”
Dabangg 3 will be directed by Prabhu Deva, who also directed Salman in Wanted.
Meanwhile, Salman will also be seen in Kick 2 and Bharat. After returning, Salman will be seen shooting for his TV show Dus Ka Dum and will also kickstart shooting for Bharat, which will be helmed by Tiger Zinda Hai director Ali Abbas Zafar.
