The megastar of Bollywood, Salman Khan is all set to entertain us in his signature style as kickass cop Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg 3. The third installment of the blockbuster franchise will be a prequel, where the story will also show the glimpses of lead character’s younger days. While we know that Rajjo aka Sonakshi Sinha is paired opposite Salman in the film, there is also another actress, which is romantically involved in the film with Chulbul in his younger days.
And that actress, who will romance young Chulbul is none another than filmmaker and actor Mahesh Manjrekar’s daughter Saiee Manjrekar. As per the Mumbai Mirror report, a source close to the film revealed the news and said, “She (Saiee Manjrekar) plays Salman’s love interest and her role is primarily in the prequel. However, life comes full circle as the character has relevance to the conflict Chulbul is battling in the present.” Talking about lead antagonist Kichcha Sudeep, the source said, “ “His character is more like the parallel lead rather than the stereotypical villain. He starts off on a positive track but situations eventually turn him into the bad guy. He is involved in a Tom and Jerry fight with Salman and there are several confrontations scenes between the two.”
Interestingly, in his last release Bharat, Salman romanced Disha Patani in his younger version and how can we forget that even Mahesh Manjrekar played Sonakshi’s father in the previous installments of Dabangg. Directed by Prabhudheva, the film is set to hit the screens on December 20.
