While Dabangg (2010) and its sequel were separated only by two years, Salman Khan acknowledged that it has been a long wait to Dabangg 3. As he released the trailer of the third edition of the cop franchise, thus marking the return of Chulbul Pandey after seven years, the superstar said that the venture kept getting pushed due to his chock-a-block date diary.

Salman Khan said, "We had locked the story long back, but I wasn't able to do it due to other commitments. With every film, I try to give the audiences a little more than what I offered in my previous outing, in terms of comedy, action and drama. I have worked 10 times harder on this film."

If Salman and Sonakshi Sinha reprise their characters from the blockbuster franchise, the latest offering also sees Saiee Manjrekar making her Bollywood debut. The actor added that they trusted Prabhudeva with the directorial responsibility, knowing that the film would arrive amid sky-high expectations.
Arbaaz Khan, who is also part of Dabangg 3, attended the trailer launch of the film with girlfriend Giorgia Andriani.
Salman Khan talking about sequels said, "Usually, sequels don't fare as well as the first film. But we have worked hard on this one. Dabangg 3 should be the biggest of the lot. It has lot more than just masala."
Dabangg 3 is directed by Prabhudeva and produced by Salma Khan, Arbaaz Khan and Nikhil Dwivedi under the banner of Salman Khan Films and is slated to release on December 20, 2019.
