Salman Khan addressed questions about the third installment of his hit franchise Dabangg while interacting with the press in Dubai and said that he is planning to release the film in December 2019, a leading entertainment portal reports. If Dabangg 3 releases in December, it will be an exciting month for film-buffs as Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra is scheduled to release on Christmas while Arjun Kapoor’s Panipat is also slated to hit screens on December 6.
Dabangg 3 stars Sonakshi Sinha opposite Salman – she also appeared in the first and second parts of the film. At the conference, Salman mentioned that Sonakshi and his roles will be “revamped” in Dabangg 3. Also, high-octane action stunts will be an important part of the film, as per the report.

Prabhudheva will be directing Dabangg 3 while it will begin filming on April 1, Salman reportedly said at the press conference in Dubai.
Dabangg released in 2010 and was directed by Abhinav Kashyap, and produced by Arbaaz Khan under Arbaaz Khan Productions. Arbaaz directed the second part of the film, which released in 2012. Speaking of Dabangg 3, Sonakshi had said previously that she is excited to begin filming.
