Salman Khan has started the shooting for Dabangg 3 this year. After completing the film’s first schedule in Bhopal, the next schedule is due to begin in Mumbai. The casting for Salman’s father in the film’s third part has not been done yet.
Sources said: “Vinod Khanna played the patriarch in the first two films. After his death the names of senior actors are being considered. The hunt is on to find a new actor to play Salman Khan’s father. Apparently, after Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra would be the perfect fit for the role. However, it remains to be seen whether the veteran actor, whom Salman idolizes, would want to take on the role.”
There are also rumors that Dimple Kapadia, who played Salman’s mother, could be seen in the film. But a source close to the film said how could Dimple return in Dabangg 3 when her character died in the first Dabangg film. These rumours make no sense. Makers don’t plan to resurrect Naina Devi (Dimple Kapadia’s character) from the dead, the added.
Sonakshi Sinha, Sudeep, Arbaaz Khan are playing important roles in Dabangg 3.
