Not very long ago, Arbaaz Khan confirmed the news of Salman Khan returning as Chulbul Pandey in the third instalment of Dabangg 3. Ever since then, reports of Kannada superstar, Kichcha Sudeep being a part of this flick were doing the rounds. Salman Khan shared the teaser of Sudeep's film Pailwaan and it only added fuel to the fire. Bhaijaan also showered praises as he was super-impressed. Now, we can be assured that Kichcha Sudeep will be a part of Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3. In fact, he will be seen as the antagonist in the film.
Don’t believe us? Well, it all happened when Sudeep took to his Twitter account and quote retweeted a fan’s tweet that shared a report of him being cast as the villain in Dabangg 3. The superstar didn’t say yes nor did he say no. He rather replied with a “well’ and a blushing emoji. Must say, smart move! According to sources, Prabhudeva has already narrated the basic premise of the film to Sudeep and he has accepted the part.
The source further revealed that "Sudeep and Salman have been planning to team up on a film for a long time and things have finally fallen in place. The two will engage in Tom and Jerry kind of skirmishes in Dabangg 3. Sudeep's character has shades of grey." Dabangg 3 will also star Sonakshi Sinha in the lead. Arbaaz had previously confirmed that the film will go on floors in April 2019 and the makers are currently on a location-hunting spree.
