Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 hit theaters today. The film directed by Prabhudheva is the third installment in the successful Dabangg franchise. The film is a mass artist. Fans of the actor flock to theaters to watch Bhai’s film. The film marks the return of Salman Khan as a grainy cop, Chulbul Pandey. Dabangg 3 also marks the debut of Mahesh Manjrekar’s daughter Saiee Manjrekar. The actress plays the role of Salman Khushi’s innocent love, before meeting Rajjo Pandey played by Sonakshi Sinha.
Some time ago, it was reported that Shah Rukh and Salman Khan were to collaborate for a direction of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. While many thought it was a rumor, Dabangg 3 producer Nikhil Dwivedi confirmed it in a recent interview. The film was a family drama about friends who became enemies, based on the lines of Dilip Kumar’s 1991 film Saudagar. Their untitled film was supposed to be released on the floors in mid-2020. “Yes, it almost happened. Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan both agreed to meet and we were delighted. But I think Mr. Bhansali was not very happy with the second half of the script and wanted more time to work on it, “said Nikhil in an interview.
After Veere Di Wedding, Nikhil produced Dabangg 3 with Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan. Commenting on his collaboration with the Khan brothers, Nikhil said he was grateful to be part of the Dabangg family. “As a producer, you want to acquire good scripts and established franchises. Dabangg is one of the most successful franchises and it was kind of Salman and Arbaaz to let me be a part of it. A producer cannot ask for a bigger configuration, ”he said.
