Salman Khan As Radhe Will See The Actor In A No-Nonsense Avatar; Prabhu Deva Confirms It To Be An Indirect Tribute To Amitabh Bachchan In Zanjeer-EXCLUSIVE

·2-min read

While Chulbul Pandey in the Dabanng series has a lot to smile laugh and prank about, in Radhe Salman plays a very serious cop. We will seldom see him smile or joke around, and he will not sing songs either. Says director Prabhudheva, “It had to be a different cop from the one that Salman Sir plays in Dabangg. Otherwise, Radhe would look like just an extension of Dabangg. We’ve made sure this cop is different, more serious.” Radhe is a tribute to Amitabh Bachchan’s cop act in Zanjeer?

“Not in any direct way. But yes both Inspector Vijay and Inspector Radhe are no-nonsense. They take their duty very seriously and they don’t spare criminals,” says Prabhu.

Like Amitabh Bachchan’s grim joyless serious cop Vijay in Zanjeer, Salman’s khaki dressed Radhe in Radhe: India’s Most Wanted won’t sing songs on screen. At least that’s the plan for now. A source very close to the film reasoned with me. “You tell me, does it make any sense for a no-nonsense cop to burst into a song for no rhyme or reason? It’s okay for Salman’s Chulbul Pandey (the cop character from Dabangg) to sing and dance, as he’s a full-on masti-khor. But Radhe is different.”

Apparently, the whole idea of doing a two cop franchise with Salman is to keep them as separate from one another as possible. Hence while Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg will do all things chulbul (naughty) Radhe is in a more serious space.

One doesn’t know if eventually Salman’s Radhe will give in to the market demands and surrender to the temptation of a song and jig. But for now, no singing for Radhe.
