Dabangg 3 is round the corner and the entire star cast - Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, and debutant Saiee Manjrekar are on a promotional spree, doing interviews one after the other.
During the recent media interactions held on Saturday, Salman Khan aka the Chulbul Pandey of the superhit Dabangg series shared some secrets that he had never revealed before.
To start with, Khan reveals that the very famous and quirky character of 'Chulbul Pandey' in the cop series was an out and out negative character in the first script. "It was a very dark film, small film to be made under Rs 2 crore," reveals Salman.
He also shares that Randeep Hooda and Arbaaz Khan were first approached for the film, however, things took a different turn later.
Salman reveals, "At that point in time, it had Randeep Hooda and Arbaaz. So Arbaaz said he has been approached for this and it’s a good one so just hear it.
“Then six-eight months passed before I finally heard it. I think UTV was supposed to do it. I liked the feel of the film but Chulbul was out and out negative.”
He also shares that when he first read it, he suggested Arbaaz and Abhinav Kashyap to make some changes and stated, "That film didn’t have any action, certainly not at this scale. There were no songs and we never get to know who killed the mother... We started working on it and Abhinav agreed to all those changes. He did a very good job with the first one."
Meanwhile, the third installment of the hit cop series, Dabangg 3- directed by Prabhu Deva and produced by Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan under their respective banners of Salman Khan Films and Arbaaz Khan Productions, is slated to hit the theatres on 20 December 2019.
