Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg 3’ to clash with Ranbir-Alia’s ‘Brahmastra’?
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who is currently concluding shoot for much-awaited film ‘Bharat’, has yet another film lined up for the year 2019. Ali Abbas Zafar directorial ‘Bharat’ is an official adaptation of the 2014 Korean blockbuster ‘Ode to My Father’. It will star Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Tabu, Disha Patani and Varun Dhawan in pivotal roles.
According to a report published in DNA, Salman Khan is likely to book Christmas 2019 for ‘Dabangg 3’. If that does happen, then Salman Khan starrer ‘Dabbang 3’ and Ranbir Kapoor– Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Brahmastra’ will clash on the box office this Christmas. As per DNA’s source, the script for ‘Dabbang 3’ is locked and it will go on floors in April 2019.
“Initially, Bhai thought of starting Chulbul Pandey’s third outing last September, while ‘Bharat’ is also under production. But since that film spans across many decades and we see him sporting different looks, he eventually decided to complete it before beginning ‘Dabangg 3’,” a source told the daily.
Notably, Ayan Mukherji’s ‘Brahmastra’ starring the real-life lovebirds Alia Bhatta and Ranbir Kapoor, is scheduled to release on December 20, whereas Salman had earlier booked the same date for ‘Kick 2′. Since the script of the film ‘Kick 2’ was not ready, ‘Dabangg’ actor has decided to replace it with ‘Dabangg 3’. It looks like Bollywood will witness another big clash on the box office window this year.
However, no official announcement has been made by any of the filmmakers so far. The film ‘Bharat’ will be released on Eid this year.
