Salman Khan is all set to shoot the climax of the third installment of his hit franchise Dabangg. While it is said that some parts of the climax of Dabangg 3 were already shot in May this year, there are now reports that the remaining portion between Salman and Kiccha Sudeep, who plays the antagonist in the film, will be shot in Mumbai next week.
A source said, “There’s a gap of seven years between Dabangg’s last instalment and the upcoming one, which releases this year. Some sequences required Salman to look younger, and the shirtless climax scene will bring him in his heroic avatar. He understands the expectations from his fans and ever since the film’s shoot started, he has started working on his physique and added multiple tough exercises in his routine.”
Salman has incorporated heavy weight lifting, running, swimming and cycling in his daily routine along with a little change in his diet during the months of May and June when the main portion of the climax scene was filmed. “There were days when he used to do his weight lifting sessions in the morning and then ride his cycle to Film City, as a part of his extended exercise, where he was shooting,” added the source.
The upcoming sequences require Salman to be supple as there will be some freehand fight combat scenes. “He had to be flexible enough to carry on with the stunts, for which he added stretching and rope skipping activities in his exercise routine,” said the insider.
Dabangg 3 also starring Sonakshi Sinha is all set to release on December 20, 2019.
