Mahesh Manjrekar on sharing the frame with daughter Saiee in Salman Khan's Dabang 3
Salman Khan and Saiee Manjrekar
While his character as an alcoholic and father to Sonakshi Sinha's Rajjo was written off in Dabangg, Mahesh Manjrekar will return to Salman Khan's franchise yet again in the upcoming third instalment, part of which is a prequel to the first edition. The actor confirms to mid-day that this offering will see him share screen space with his daughter, Saiee, who features as a young Chulbul Pandey's love interest.
With Dabangg 3 chronicling Chulbul's journey to becoming a cop, Manjrekar too will slip into a young avatar. The actor, who is currently filming for the offering in Phaltan, tells mid-day, "I reprise my role of Haria. It's a cameo which is there to establish Chulbul's journey. I had one scene with Saiee and Salman, and it was wonderful to be in the same frame as my daughter. I felt proud and emotional."
