The much awaited trailer of Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is finally out! The superstar is back as an undercover cop in this crime thriller, that is packed with high octane action, dramatic dialogues and groovy music. 

As Salman Khan is back as an undercover cop in Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, here’s looking back at the Bollywood movies where the actor played a police officer:

The Dabangg series

Salman Khan played a fun and fearless cop not once but thrice in the three instalments of the hit Dabangg series. His iconic character of ‘Chulbul Pandey’ is a fan’s favourite and the film series is still fondly loved by the audience. Right from quirky dance steps to  catchy dialogues, the Dabangg series is one of the most memorable projects in Salman’s filmography.

Sonakshi Sinha made her Bollywood debut with Dabangg (2010) and reprised her role in Dabangg 2 (2012) and Dabangg 3 (2019), which also marked the debut of Mahesh Manjrekar's daughter, Saiee Manjrekar.

Salman Khan aced the undercover cop role in the 2009 action film Wanted. Directed by Prabhudeva, the film featured Ayesha Takia, Vinod Khanna, Prakash Raj, and Mahesh Manjrekar in key roles. 

In the film, Salman plays an undercover police office and disguises himself as a gangster. While fans could only see the actor wearing the khaki uniform towards the end of the film, the climax was worth the wait and Wanted is one of the biggest hits of Khan’s career.
