For the first time, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan kicks off the promotional tour of an upcoming film down South, when he hits the road to publicise Dabangg 3 in Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru. The decision is obviously prompted by the fact that the film is scheduled to release in Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada languages, besides the original Hindi version.
Co-stars Sonakshi Sinha and Saiee Manjrekar, and director Prabhudeva will accompany Salman during the promotions. Directed by Prabhudeva and produced by Salma Khan, Arbaaz Khan and Nikhil Dwivedi under the banner of Salman Khan Films, the film is slated to open on December 20.
Salman took on his supercop avatar as Chulbul Pandey with Dabangg in 2010. The character has gone on to become a popular icon in contemporary Bollywood, with Dabangg 2 in 2012 following up the blockbuster show of the first film. 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. 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.
