Dabangg 3 is the third installment in the Dabangg franchise starring Salman Khan in the lead role. The film also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Arbaaz Khan and is directed by Prabhu Deva as Arbaaz was too stressed after directing the previous installment and wanted to focus on production and acting. It was later revealed that Dabangg 3 will be a prequel to the previous two installments in the series.
Sajid-Wajid will be composing the music of the film while Sandeep Shirodkar will be giving the background music. Kajol was offered the role of the antagonist but she refused to play it as she didn't think her character was strong enough.
