Filming for the third instalment of action film Dabangg 3 will begin from April, confirms producer Arbaaz Khan. Mumbai Mirror quoted him as saying, “Yes, Dabangg 3 will go on the floors in April. However, we are still contemplating the locations. At this point, all that I can say is that the film features Salman Khan in the lead and will be directed by Prabhudeva.”

While some have speculated that the film will be based on the real-life story of a Noida policeman, Arbaaz has chosen to remain tight-lipped about the subject. “I have been reading a lot about Dabangg 3 on social media — some say it is a remake, some say it is inspired by a real life incident, some say it is set in Noida. At present, I would like to maintain some secrecy around it,” he told the publication.

Sonakshi Sinha has also put out a statement confirming she will be part of the film. "I couldn't have asked for a better start to 2019. I have just finished shooting for Kalank and will resume Mission Mangal once back from Macau and will start Dabangg 3 soon,” she said.

The first Dabangg film premiered in 2010 and introduced audiences to the flamboyant, moustachioed police inspector Chulbul Pandey, played by Salman. Salman is currently shooting for Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, which also stars Katrina Kaif.
