Superstar Salman Khan's favourite cricketer is none other than Mahendra Singh Dhoni. "He is a Dabangg player," so said Chulbul Pandey on Sunday. On Star Sports' pre-show Nerolac Cricket Live, Salman spoke about his bond with batsman Kedar Jadhav and how much he admires the 'dabangg' style of the former India captain Dhoni."I personally know Kedar Jadhav...Also, my favourite cricketer is MS Dhoni. He is a Dabangg player," Salman said.
Salman Khan was accompanied by his co-star Kiccha Sudeep, who is playing villain in the third installment of the Dabangg series. "My favourite player is the one who plays well on that day. But what we see as fans is the respect each player has towards each other," Sudeep said.
"We can visibly see the players stand and cheer for the achievements of their teammates - with such a positive attitude, we can freely have our favourites. My all time favourite has to be Anil Kumble sir, and I also like Rohit Sharma," Sudeep added.
Salman and Sudeep will be seen in "Dabangg 3", which is scheduled to release on December 20. Salman took on the cop avatar of Chulbul Pandey with "Dabangg" in 2010. It has became very popular among his fans and followers. Now, he will be back as the fun police officer with the upcoming Dabangg 3. "Since the last 9 years, I feel a strong parallel existence of Chulbul Pandey. I am overwhelmed with the love and support that the fans gave the character," Salman said.
The actor opened up about how Chulbul Pandey is not just a character for him but is an entirely different persona that he likes to embrace. "Once I wear my police vardi and moustache, I am no more Salman Khan, I am Chulbul Pandey," he added.
Directed by Prabhudeva and produced by Salma Khan, Arbaaz Khan and Nikhil Dwivedi under the banner of Salman Khan Films, the film also features Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz, Amole Gupte, Mahie Gill and Tinnu Anand.
