The first part, which was released in 2010, was helmed by Abhinav Kashyap, who was then picked to helm the sequel, two years later. But due to some creative differences with Arbaaz, Arbaaz himself directed Dabangg 2. Buzz was that the Khan brothers approached a couple of directors for Dabangg  3, finally, they have found one and the third film in the franchise will now be helmed by Prabhu Dheva.
