Salman Khan’s much-anticipated Dabangg 3 trailer was released on Wednesday evening, with the actor reprising his smash-hit character Chulbul Pandey. Other regulars like Sonakshi Sina and Arbaaz Khan will also be seen in the third installment of this franchise, that is directed by choreographer-actor-filmmaker Prabhudeva.
Prabhudeva and Salman had earlier collaborated for a hit in Wanted. Abhinav Kashyap directed the first Dabangg movie, while Arbaaz Khan took over the mantle for Dabangg 2.
In the clip, Salman introduces himself as a “policewala gunda” followed by several trademark Chulbul gimmicks and signature moves. The movie will also introduce Mahesh Manjrekar’s daughter Saiee Manjrekar as the love interest of younger Salman, and she is touted to play an important role in a flashback.
But fans will most look forward to Salman’s face-off with Kannada superstar Kichcha Sudeep’s character, known for his roles in other regional language films as well.
Screenings of Dabangg 3 trailer were arranged simultaneously in various cities including Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi, Jaipur, Kolkata and Lucknow.
Dabangg 3 also stars Mahesh Manjrekar, Arbaaz Khan, Pramod Khanna, Dimple Kapadia and Mahie Gill.
The movie is set to hit the screens on December 20 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
