As fans gear up for Dabangg 3 to hit theaters, the makers have released a behind-the-scenes video that looks at how Salman Khan transformed into the now iconic moustachioed police officer Chulbul Pandey. The video features footage from the sets of the film as well as interviews with the director and the cast.
Director Prabhu Deva says that this Dabangg sequel will tell the origin story of Chulbul Pandey. You’ll discover why he is the way he is and how he got his style and mannerisms, and how Salman mastered them. Mahesh Limaye, the cinematographer of the film, says that when Salman comes on the sets, he is himself. But as soon as he puts on the cop uniform, he immediately transforms into the character of Chulbul Pandey.
Sonakshi Sinha, who reprises her role as Rajjo in the film, is all praises for her co-star in the video. She says,
"“Salman Khan always makes things larger than life. He is very impactful. It is a pleasure to work with him because he is so quick.” " - Sonakshi Sinha, Actor
Newcomer Saiee Manjrekar also speaks about her experience on set and says,
"“Salman has been most instrumental in getting me here. He is so accommodating, sweet and kind and he made me very comfortable on set.”" - Saiee Manjrekar, Actor
Shabina Khan, the choreographer seems to think that, “Chulbul Pandey is equally dabangg as he is Chulbul. He is like every common man!”
The video also features South star Kichcha Sudeep, who plays the villain in Dabangg 3. He talks about Salman’s work ethic and the massive fan following that Bhai has gathered over the years. He says,
"“When everybody says okay, he walks up and says ‘one more!’” He is a strong character who has a super human power and is a wonderful person. I see everybody loving him so much!”" - Kichcha Sudeep, Actor
