Salman asks team to construct walls around 'Dabangg-3' sets. Why?
Currently filming Dabangg 3, actor Salman Khan is having a tough time keeping the shooting a secret. Ever since it began rolling, pictures from the sets have been going viral on the Internet on-and-off. To prevent any further leaks, Salman has apparently asked his team to construct huge walls around the sets in Pune. But, will it work?
According to a Mid-Day report, the superstar took the decision after videos from his dance sequences with co-actor Sonakshi Sinha from their Jaipur schedule were leaked on social media last week. This isn't the first time that pictures from Dabangg 3 found its way to social media. Earlier, Salman's new look as the younger Chulbul Pandey also went viral on the Internet.
Expressing his disappointment over repeated leaks, Salman called a meeting with his team to increase security on the sets. "He also advised the production team to increase height of the walls around so that ardent fans cannot scale them during Pune schedule," a source said.
Salman has also, reportedly, enforced a no-phone policy on Dabangg 3 sets, and has asked the cast and crew to refrain from carrying mobile phones to the filming area. This move has been taken to keep Mahesh Manjrekar's daughter Saiee's look under wraps, who's making her debut with this film. "Salman wants to personally reveal her first look from the film," the source asserted.
On a related note, Dabangg 3 will have two parallel tracks focusing on the past and present lives of Chulbul Pandey. "For the prequel portions, Salman will have to look younger as the scenes will be about the time when he hadn't become a police officer," the source revealed. For the younger and leaner look, the Bharat star also, reportedly, lost 7 kgs.
Talking about the remaining cast of the movie, Sonakshi and Arbaaz Khan will be reprising their roles of Rajjo and Makkhi, respectively in the third installment of the franchise. However, Vinod Khanna, who passed away in April 2017 due to bladder cancer, will be replaced by his younger brother Pramod. Pramod will essay the role of Chulbul's father, Prajapati Pandey, in the movie.
Helmed by Prabhu Deva, Dabangg 3 will be releasing on December 20. Notably, the much-anticipated movie will be released in four languages simultaneously. "Chulbul Pandey coming to you on 20th Dec in Hindi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu," Salman had tweeted. The movie is likely to face competition from Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan-starrer Good News, which will release on December 27 this year.
