Salman Khan announced in September last year that he will be returning as Inspector Chulbul Pandey in the third installment of his popular Dabangg franchise. And now we hear that the actor is all set to kick start the shooting of the film in April and it will be directed by none other than Prabhudheva, with whom Salman last worked in 2009 film Wanted.
Confirming the news, producer of the film, Arbaaz Khan, told a leading daily, "Yes, Dabangg 3 will go on the floors in April, however we are still contemplating the locations. At this point, all that I can say that the film features Salman Khan in lead and will be directed by Prabhudheva."
Well, now we certainly cannot contain our excitement!

Meanwhile, ever since Dabangg 3 was announced, several conjectures have been made about the film's plot. When Arbaaz was quizzed about it, he chose to not reveal anything and said, "I have been reading a lot about Dabangg 3 on the social media, some say it is a remake, some say it is inspired by real life incident, some say it is set in Noida. At present, I would like to maintain some secrecy around it."
For the unversed, Salman will only start shooting for the cop drama once he wraps up his forthcoming film Bharat, which is presently being shot at Mumbai's Film City. The Ali Abbas Zafar directorial stars Katrina Kaif as the female lead and is slated to release on Eid 2019.
