Salman Bhai’s fans are waiting with bated breath for  Dabangg 3 which is slated to release this Friday. The movie crew; director Prabhu Deva, and cast that includes Salman,  Sonakshi Sinha and Saiee Manjrekar (along with namma Sudeep) arrived in  Bengaluru on Tuesday to share their journey of Dabangg 3 at this star hotel in the city.  After waiting for a couple of hours, enthu fans went berserk when  they spotted Salman, who made low-profile entry.

The superstar was casually attired in a black t-shirt with green denims and wooed his fans by greeting in Kannada with a “Namaskara Bengaluru”. The venue was packed with people who went absolutely ballistic when he attempted to speak in Kannada.

Salman while sharing the journey of his third sequel said, “I appreciate the entire team and their hard work. This movie has every element that has made it possible to reach its third sequel.” He then pointed towards Sudeep and added, “I appreciate this superstar hero, who is also like my young brother for his kind nature and giving his best to the movie. I am really excited to be in Bengaluru.”

Sudeep, who was wearing a dapper jacket reached the venue first and lit the floor. His antagonist role in the movie as Bali Sigh is believed to be a must-wait for his fans.  He thanked the crew for making him part of the movie and said, “This movie surely will receive a fruitful result.” Sudeep chuckled and shared how Salman learnt to dub in Kannada. “Though there was an alternative for dubbing but Salman persisted as he wanted to dub on his own. When the whole crew wonders where Salman goes missing for 15 minutes, only I knew that he is learning Kannada in some corner before he comes back to dub.”

Prabhu Deva who directed the film said was more than satisfied with the experience.  He said, “It is over-whelming to work with Salman after Wanted.” He also revealed that Dabangg 4 will start it pre-production in no time.“The movie itself is a brand and appeals to all. This youth and family entertainer will not fail to please our fans,”he added.

Sonakshi Sinha and Saiee Manjrekar in a blue gingham print saree and mustard colour lehenga respectively, drew a lot of appreciation. Sonakshi, whose favourite place is Bengaluru shared, “Rajjo’s endeavour in the movie will not fail to please the audience.” She also welcomed Saiee Manjrekar, director Manish Manjrekar’s daughter to Bollywood and wished her luck.
