If the superstar's Robin Hood-inspired cop has gained iconic status in pop culture, Sonakshi Sinha - who plays the feisty Rajjo - has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Khan in the past two blockbuster instalments. She will be back as Rajjo in the third instalment.
Dabangg 3 is a prequel to Dabangg and Dabangg 2, which shines a light on the backstory of Salman Khan's character, Chulbul Pandey. His character will be portrayed as a goon with a heart of gold in a flashback, which will cover his transformation into a Robin Hood cop.
Sanjay Manjrekar's daughter Saiee will be playing Chulbul Pandey's love interest in the movie. She will be making her debut in showbiz with this film.

Last month, Salman Khan shared a still from the set that features Saiee Manjrekar. This was said to be the first look of the debutant. In the image shared by Salman on his Instagram handle, we can see the duo posing on the banks of a river. Salman is seen wearing a light brown shirt, while Saiee has donned a peach coloured suit. Tagging the debutant, Salman captioned the image, "On location #dabangg3 @saieemmanjrekar. [sic]"

According to sources, the decision to release Dabangg 3 in multiple languages has been taken to cater to the mass appeal that the star possesses where Salman Khan is a Pan-Indian superstar with unparalleled popularity along with a fan-following like no one else.
