It is official, Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha's Dabangg 3 will release on December 20, 2019. This makes it the biggest release of the month along with Panipat that comes on December 6, 2019. Salman Khan took to Instagram to make the announcement. This is the third film in the Dabangg franchise. This one is going to be directed by Prabhudheva. The shoot of the film began in April in Madhya Pradesh. They started off in Maheshwar and Mandleshwar, which happens to be the maternal hometown of Salman Khan. There was immense speculation that Dabangg 3 and Ranbir Kapoor - Alia Bhatt's Brahmastra might collide at the box office. However, recent reports suggest that the Ayan Mukerji directorial might be moved to early 2020. This is because of the pending VFX. An insider told DNA After Hrs, "There is a more practical reason. If Brahmastra doesn't release in December 2019, it will be mainly because its shooting is likely to go on till October. After this, the sci-fi thriller will get into post-production, which may take longer because the film is heavily dependent on VFX. In the past, every movie with heavy-duty visual effects, has had to keep a buffer period due to the nature of the work involved."
It seems the logistical reasons made the makers re-think on Brahmastra release date. In Dabangg 3, Salman Khan returns as Inspector Chulbul Pandey while Sonakshi Sinha is Rajjo. It seems three sets have made been in Film City and shoot is simultaneously on in all the three places. A grand introduction is being planned for Kichcha Sudeep who joins the team in May.
A source said, "In Salman’s absence, Prabhudheva (director) will shoot Sudeep’s solo portions in the city. Since he is a big star down South, the plan is to present him in a certain way. He will also have a grand introduction. The film is set in the past and present and Sudeep’s character is involved in both. This time, it’s the antagonist who is the catalyst in the story." The superstar will take a break for the promotions of Bharat. Stay tuned to BL for more updates!
