Vinod Khanna’s brother to play Salman’s father

Vinod Khanna’s brother Pramod has been roped in to play Prajapati Pandey in Dabangg 3. The late actor had played the character in the first two instalments.

‘Son’ Salman Khan, the popular Chulbul Pandey, uploaded a video which has director Prabhudheva introducing the actor with a portrait where he is dressed like Vinod from the earlier films. It has him along a bubbly Sonakshi as Rajjo and Salman in his Robin Hood cop avatar.

The actor kicked off the shoot for the film on April 1 when he jetted off to Maheshwar in Madhya Pradesh to shoot with brother Arbaaz. It marks his second collaboration with his Wanted director.

Arbaaz reprises his role as Makhanchand Pandey aka Makkhi. The film opens on December 20.
