Bollywood has been synonymous with presenting strong, tough cops on screen who get the job down, bring justice to the needy and send the bad guys scouring for cover, and none have been as instrumental as building this larger-than-life of the dhamakedaar Hindi-cinema cop as Chulbul Pandey from the Dabangg franchise. However, the cops of Rohit Shetty's films, too, are not that far behind with Singham, Simmba and the upcoming, Sooryavanshi, carving a huge place in audience's hearts for their tough-as-nails cop avatars. Now, with news of Rohit Shetty expanding these characters into a cop universe, it's only natural for Bollywood movie-buffs to hope that Salman Khan's Chulbul Pandey also becomes a part of this universe some time down the road.
Well, the cat's finally out of the bag as BollywoodLife recently posed the million-dollar question to Salman Khan himself during an exclusive interview for Dabangg 3. We asked him whether Chulbul Pandey, one of the most iconic cops of the Indian silver screen, could ever join Rohit Shetty's cop universe if the Director approached him for the same, and here's what the superstar had to say:
"He's got his own universe (giggles), and I've got my own universe."
Well, we guess that settles it then. Without clearly stating it, it's pretty evident that Salman has implied that there's no chance of Chulbul Pandey ever joining up with Singham, Simmba and Sooryavanshi. As disappointing as this news may be to fans, we need to respect Salman Khan's wishes and trust that he's making the right call just as he usually does. Also, don't forget that Dabangg 3 is going to storm into theatres this Friday, 20th December. Don't forget to catch it in a theatre near you, and stay tuned to BollywoodLife for all the latest scoops and updates.
