Bollywood star Parineeti Chopra will be the new Rajjo in Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 3, according to producer-director Arbaaz Khan.
The 48-year-old filmmaker confirmed that the original ‘Dabangg’ duo will be reuniting on the 70mm screen for the third time and also hinted at a possibility of another heroine in the film. “Sonakshi is going to be a part of ‘Dabangg 3’. But there might also be a possibility of another heroine in the film,” he said;
Earlier, there were reports that Sonakshi Sinha has been dropped out of the hit franchise over an alleged friction with Salman Khan, which started when she turned down Arbaaz Khan’s production ‘Dolly Ki Doli’. It was also reported that the two also had a showdown at Salman’s sister Arpita’s wedding in November 2014, and since then, the two are not on talking terms.
Sonakshi made her Bollywood debut with ‘Dabangg’, which earned her recognition and a Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.
Salman is currently busy with the television show ‘Bigg Boss’ season 10, after which he will shoot for Kabir Khan’s war-drama ‘Tubelight’ while Sonakshi is awaiting the release of her films ‘Akira’ and ‘Force.’
Salman, 50, is rumoured to be playing a man-child in Tubelight. While reports are suggesting that Deepika Padukone will play Salman’s leading lady in the film, others are suggesting that a Chinese actress will make her debut in the film. – CINEWS
