In the film, Salman Khan has managed to weave magic with his character of Chulbul Pandey on the big screen, and not to miss south Indian superstar Kiccha Sudeep, he has also taken the role of an antagonist to new levels. While Dabangg 3 got a stupendous opening of Rs 24.50 crore, it is considered a dull start when it comes to Salman Khan films. As per various trade pandits, the collections of Dabangg 3 got marred by the ongoing nationwide protests against Citizenship Amendment Act and NRC.
