Over the decade, we have seen numerous genre-based films come in and work well at the box office. Before this cop-genre film came into fashion in Indian cinema, it was Salman Khan who revived the genre in the industry and among the masses with his flick 'Dabangg' in which he played the iconic character of Chulbul Pandey. The film, released in 2010, has completed thirteen years of release today, and upon its release, it brought a tsunami at the box office and has become the highest opener of all time across India. The genre of cop actioners was properly utilized in Dabangg, which changed that scenario and succeeded at the ticket window. Following the release of Dabangg, Bollywood saw many filmmakers and actors come out with cop character-based films, which include Singham, Rowdy Rathore, Simmba, Sooryavanshi, and many more.
Talking about Dabangg, the film was the trendsetter of Indian Cinema, which not only cracked the path of the box office but also made its way into the mass's hearts. The audience and the fans went berserk on the film. From the iconic belt dance step of Salman to the dialogues to the action, emotions, romance, and comedy the film offered everything to the masses. The film is still one of the most entertaining mass films, with Salman's character of Chulbul Pandey driving the force.
