The shoot of the third franchise of Dabangg series has already begun and while lead actor Salman Khan has reportedly shot for the title track, actress Sonakshi Sinha joined the sets today, post the promotions of her upcoming movie, Kalank. Sticking to her character Rajjo, which she played in the previous two editions of Dabangg, Sonakshi uploaded a picture on her Instagram handle, dressed ready for shoot and killing the look in hot pink.

In the shared picture, Sonakshi can be seen donning a beautiful bright pink saree, paired with a set of similarly shaded bangles and pink flowers sticking to one side of her long tresses.. The gold chain in her neck and gold jhumkis added to her subtle look as she posed shyly. Sona captioned the post in the backdrop of murals and plants as, “RAJJO is back!!! From Dabangg, to Dabangg 3…Its homecoming. Day 1 of shoot for me today, wish me luck #DabanggGirl” (sic).

As Sonakshi headed to Madhya Pradesh to join Salman and the cast and crew for the shoot on Wednesday, she took to her Instagram story to share a picture of herself and captioned it, “On my way to #Dabangg3”. Sonakshi made her big Bollywood debut with Salman Khan in Dabangg (2010) and was applauded for her performance. She was also there in the second part which released in 2012. She is now all set to star in the third part of the film.

Earlier, a report in MumbaiMirror quoted a source saying, “In his back story, which is a kind of prequel, Chulbul will be shown as a local goon with a heart of gold and a lengthy flashback will cover his metamorphosis into a Robin Hood cop. The conflict in the present with Sudeep is connected to his past before Chulbul got into uniform. Everything that the brand is synonymous with has been retained and adapted keeping modern-day sensibilities in mind.”
