Actor Salman Khan‘s next after Bharat is Dabangg 3 and there’s a new update on the same. The superstar is currently on his popular Da-Bangg tour in Dubai with Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Aayush Sharma, Daisy Shah and others. At the press conference of the tour, he talked about Dabangg 3 and when he is planning to release the film. Salman made a startling revelation when he said that he’s going to start shooting for the Prabhudeva directorial in April and the film will be hitting the theatres in December this year.

Bollywood Hungama quoted the actor saying, “We will start Dabangg 3 on April 1 and release the film in December this year.” While Salman’s fans shall rejoice after this news, the fans of actors Ranbir Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor might be in an iffy. Both the actors have got their big films releasing in the month of December this year. While Ranbir has Brahmastra with Amitabh Bachchan and Alia Bhatt, Arjun has Panipat: The Great Betrayal with Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt.

The release date of Dabangg 3 isn’t out yet while Brahmastra is seeing the day’s light on December 20, and Panipat on December 6. Both are two of the most anticipated films of the year and are being made on giant sets with huge budgets. With Salman’s announcement, it becomes crucial to see if a change in release date of any of these three films happens or if the films hit the screens to eat each other’s business at the Box Office.

Meanwhile, after returning from Da-Bangg tour, Salman will gear up for the promotions of his next release, Bharat, with Katrina Kaif and Ali Abbas Zafar. The teaser of the film was recently released to positive response and the Bhai fans can’t wait to see the trailer of the film. Apart from Salman and Katrina, Bharat also features Sunil Grover, Nora Fatehi, Disha Patani and Jackie Shroff in important roles. It’s a big Eid release this year and is hitting the screens on June 5.
