#Dabangg3: Salman trains hard to achieve younger Chulbul's chiseled body
Salman Khan is currently basking in the commercial success of his last release Bharat, while also preparing hard for his next, Dabangg 3. The intense workout videos that he frequently posts on social media are all part of this preparation. Since the film will have some flashback scenes, and show a younger Chulbul Pandey, it was important for him to have a leaner body.
According to a Pinkvilla report, Salman's preparations are for Dabangg 3's next schedule, which will begin in July. For this much younger, sharper and chiseled look in the movie, Salman is likely to lose around 7kgs. "For the third schedule, Salman is rigorously hitting the gym as he has to lose around 7 more kilos to achieve the desired look," a source reportedly stated.

As mentioned before, Dabangg 3 will feature Chulbul's past life, which will show how he became the present day Robin Hood. "For the prequel portions, Salman will have to look younger as the scenes will be about the time when he had not become a police officer," the source added. Apart from Salman, Sonakshi Sinha returns as Rajjo and Arbaaz Khan as Makkhi.
After the demise of veteran actor Vinod Khanna in April 2017, Chulbul's father, Prajapati Pandey, will now be played by Vinod's younger brother Pramod Khanna. Pramod's inclusion was announced in June. Meanwhile, Salman and Vinod's chemistry gave a new dimension to the father-son relationship in Dabangg (2010) and Dabangg 2 (2012). He will sorely be missed in the third part of the popular franchise.
For this movie, Salman has also roped in noted director Mahesh Manjrekar's daughter, Ashwami. This will be her debut, in which she will essay the role of Salman's love interest. Helmed by Prabhu Deva, Dabangg 3 is scheduled to release on December 20, 2019.
