Salman Khan is a part of great many projects already and is currently shooting for his upcoming Race 3 which will release on EID 2018. Race 3 has already completed a major chuck of it’s shooting and is currently on the last leg of production. Salman has a few confirmed releases already such as ‘Bharat’ which will come out on EID 2019 and Kick 2 that is suppose to release on Christmas 2019. Salman may start the shoot of his blockbuster franchise film Dabangg 3 after he wraps up the schedule of Race 3 to release the film by the end of this year.
Dabangg 1 and 2 were monster hits and fans are certainly awaiting to see the Robin Hood cop back on screen behaving like a musketeer while breaking bones of bad guys. Dabangg was directed by Abhinav Kashyap though the director did not return for the sequel of the film hence producer Arbaaz Khan took the charge and directed the sequel though he will not return as the director and makers have not announced the name of their new commander in chief on sets. Arbaaz also plays the character of Salman’s younger brother in the film and will retain the role in part 3.
All the major festival release dates of 2018 are booked already with Salman himself coming on EID and Aamir releasing his potential blockbuster ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ on Diwali. There were reports that Salman will release his film on the Christmas weekend of 2018 but superstar Shahrukh Khan will release his film ‘Zero’ on 21 December to juice the Christmas crowd while Ranveer Singh and Rohit Shetty are coming on 28 December to milk the last ounce of 2018 with their cop action/drama ‘Simba’. If in case Salman is able to complete the shoot of Dabangg 3 this year than he will have to clash with either Ranveer Singh or Shahrukh Khan on the box office.
