Makers of Dabangg 3 eyeing a Republic Day Weekend release.
Salman Khan will return as Chulbul Pandey, the kickass cop in Dabangg 3. Originally Dabangg 3 was aimed to be released during the Christmas Weekend in the last week of December 2018. However, the plans have been shifted and the makers are now eyeing the release in the last week of January 2019 on Republic Day Weekend.
Republic Day 2019 will be the biggest clash in the history of Bollywood.
Interestingly, four films have already registered for a release on the Republic Day Weekend. And with Dabangg 3 adding up to the queue, if all of them release as scheduled then it would be the biggest clash in the history of Bollywood. The other films that have already booked the date include Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30, Nawazuddin Siddique’s Thackeray and Emraan Hashmi starrer Cheat India.
As a matter of fact, Akshay Kumar is known for his Republic Day releases and has already released Baby and Airlift on Republic Day Weekend. On the other hand, Super 30 will be the second release of Hrithik Roshan on Republic Day after his Kaabil released during the same period in 2017.

Coming back to Dabangg 3, it will be directed by the ace choreographer Prabhudeva and produced by Salman Khan’s brother Arbaaz Khan. This will be the second collaboration between Salman Khan and Prabhudeva after their super hit release of 2009 – Wanted. According to the sources, Dabangg 3 will be more like a prequel to its previous two parts and will feature Salman Khan as Chulbul Pandey. The movie will also have Sonakshi Sinha as a cameo in this masala entertainer.
