Salman Khan is soon returning with his Chulbul Pandey act as Dabangg 3 opens in theatres this December. Interestingly this time, Salman has also been credited for the screenplay, story and dialogues. Recently, in an interview with Mirror, the actor opened up how he has changed the character, Chulbul Pandey, from what it was conceived as. Interestingly, Chulbul Pandey wasn't the righteous guy that he is shown.
Talking about the character, Salman revealed, "When I heard the story of the first Dabangg, which Dilip Shukla had written, I liked the plot but thought the character wasn’t noble. There were no songs, he was grey, corrupt and ruthless. I changed him into the Chulbul Pandey you see, and it worked. There was a lot of angst. The mother passes away, after which he accepts his father and brother as family. That script was not mine; we retained the mota mota plot and made the scenes more massy and today, with a different kind of swagger. If you were to meet Chulbul on the road, toh aap usey maroge because he’ll appear arrogant and badtameez. But on screen, you like him. He does tedha things but for the right reasons. Like the zehreela sharab scene in Dabangg was negative but uska fayda was positive."
He further went on to explain, "In Dabangg 2, they wanted just Chulbul, without the family. I argued that Chulbul worked because of his mother, father, Makkhan Chand Pandey, Bobby ji, Tiwari ji, Pichkari ji, Rajjo, everyone. How could I take them out? So, we retained them. The third part is about how Chulbul became the man he is. We’ve dug up his past, there’s pain. It’s an emotional vendetta story."
The actor also revealed that the planning for the next installment is also ready. He said, "We have Dabangg 4 written too."
