Speculation was rife regarding the third instalment of Salman Khan’s Dabangg releasing at the end of this year and clashing with either Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero or Ranveer Singh’s Simmba. Now it seems that since the first schedule of the film has been postponed, the film will release only in 2019. Dabangg 3 was to go on floors this month but shooting of the film, being directed by Prabhudheva, will commence on September 14. The makers are looking at a mid-2019 release.
Interestingly, we hear that Khan is planning to release this film during one of the most coveted weekends in the industry – the Independence Day weekend. If Dabangg 3 does hit theatres on I-Day next year, it will clash with the Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt-starrer Brahmastra, which is also slated to release on August 15, 2019. Watch this space for updates!
