Dabangg 3: Pramod Khanna, the brother of late Vinod Khanna will be playing the role of Prajapati Panday, Salman Khan's onscreen father in the movie. Salman Khan took to his Instagram account to share the big news. Pramod Khanna will be the new face in Dabangg 3. Prajapati Panday, the character name of Salman Khan's on-screen father, plays a major role in the life of Chulbul Panday. Salman Khan took to his Instagram account and wrote, "Introducing Pramod Khanna . . #Dabangg3@aslisona @prabhudheva"
After the demise of Vinod Khanna in 2017, there was a void on who will play the role of Salman Khan's on-screen father in Dabangg. Sonakshi Sinha, Prabhudeva and Salman Khan introduced the new Prajapati Panday to us. Both the brothers look alike and we couldn't figure out for a few seconds that who is the real one.
Sonakshi Sinha recently refuted the news of love triangle in Dabangg 3. She said, "No... speculations will be there, but of course, there will be a different story and this film will have new characters as we don't want to offer the same stuff to our audience. I feel it is going to be an amazing film."
Dabangg 3 will narrate the backstory of Chulbul Pandey through flashbacks and Salman has started preparing for those portions. To play the younger version of Chulbul Pandey, Salman needs to shed some weight.
A source close to the development told Mumbai Mirror, "In the flashback portions, Chulbul is a man in his 20s, and Salman has been hitting the gym to get the required look." As per reports, not Sonakshi but another actress will feature in flashback scenes.
It is the third movie in the sequel. Dabangg 3 is scheduled to release in December 2019.
