In Dabangg and Dabangg 2, veteran actor Vinod Khanna played the role of Salman Khan’s father. But unfortunately, we won’t get to see the legendary actor in Dabangg 3 as he passed away in 2017. From the day Dabangg 3 has been announced, everyone is keen to know who will be playing the character of Prajapati Pandey. There were also reports that the movie will be made without the character of Chulbul Pandey’s father in it. However, now the makers have announced who will be seen as Prajapati Pandey in the movie.

Salman took to Twitter to inform everyone that Vinod Khanna’s brother, Pramod Khanna has been roped in to play the role of Prajapati Pandey. Salman tweeted, “Introducing Pramod Khanna . . #Dabangg3 @sonakshisinha @PDdancing.” It is a video in which Salman, Sonakshi Sinha and director Prabhudheva introduce Pramod Khanna as Prajapati Pandey.

It surely seems to be a perfect casting as who would have been a better choice than Pramod Khanna to step into the shoes of Vinod Khanna. Reportedly, Dimple Kapadia, whose character died in Dabangg, will be back in Dabangg 3 as the movie will showcase the back story of Chulbul Pandey. Salman will be losing weight for the film as in the back story of his character, the actor will be shown in his 20s.

It was said that Dabangg 3 has a love triangle, but recently, Sonakshi denied the reports. She said, “No, speculations will be there, but of course, there will be a different story and this film will have new characters as we don’t want to offer the same stuff to our audience. I feel it is going to be an amazing film.”

Apart from Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz Khan and Pramod Khanna, Dabangg 3 will also have another actress who will be seen romancing Chulbul Pandey in the film. However, the makers are yet to announce who the actress is. The movie also stars Sudeep who plays the antagonist in the film.

Dabangg 3 is slated to release on 20th December 2019.
