Nine-years back, Salman Khan introduced Sonakshi Sinha to stardom with blockbuster cop-drama Dabangg and since then has shouldered the responsibility of launching many star kids. The third installment of Dabangg will be no different as the daughter of a Bollywood actor-filmmaker and, Salman's dear friend has made the cut this time.
According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, Salman Khan is all set to romance newcomer Mahesh Manjrekar’s younger daughter, Saiee in Dabangg during Chulbul Pandey's teenage years. The movie will also star Sonakshi Sinha as a lead character and Slamsn's love interest during his formative year apart from Saiee.
The national daily quoted a source as "She plays Salman’s love interest and her role is primarily in the prequel. However, life comes full circle as the character has relevance to the conflict Chulbul is battling in the present"
Salman will portray two different looks, one as a young man in his 20s, a neighbourhood goon when he will star opposite Saiee and the other as turning a Robin Hood cop when he meets Rajjo as Sonakshi.
Earlier speculations were rife that Mahesh's elder daughter Ashwami will make her debut but since she has no plans to enter showbiz anytime soon, the younger one, Saiee will take the opportunity. The source also informed that Saiee has already shot major scenes for the movie that went to floors in May 2019.
Dabangg 3 is being directed by Prabhdheva and the cast is shooting in Phalatan in Maharashtra. The film also marks the return of Kannada star Sudeep to Bollywood
