Salman is currently busy with his next film Bharat, which also stars Katrina Kaif, Tabu, Disha Patani, Jackie Shroff and Sunil Grover. He will then begin shooting for Dabangg 3 and is expected to wrap it by the end of the year.
Salman will return as Chulbul Pandey in the film, while Sonakshi will return to play his wife. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Kannada actor Sudeep has been signed for the role of the antagonist in the film. Meanwhile, Jagapathi Babu is rumoured to have been cast as a second negative character in the much-anticipated sequel.
Dabangg 3 will be directed by Prabhudheva and produced by Arbaaz Khan. The first instalment in the Dabangg series was directed by Abhinav Kashyap while Arbaaz Khan had directed the second.
Arbaaz had earlier confirmed in a Mumbai Mirror report, “Yes, Dabangg 3 will go on the floors in April, however we are still contemplating the locations. At this point, all I can say that the film features Salman in the lead and will be directed by Prabhudheva.”
Confirming her being a part of the film, Sonakshi had told IANS in an interview, “I have started my film journey with Dabangg so it’s like homecoming for me so, I am very excited.”
