Salman Khan gained a new status as Chulbul when his movie Dabangg was released in 2010. Salman playing a funny policeman caught everyone’s attention and also did a huge number at the box office. Since then there were 2 more sequels ie Dabangg2 and Dabangg3 which too was a huge success in the box office. Talks are that the script for Dabangg4 was already in motion as Dabangg3 was released!
Now after the movies, Salman Khan’s iconic character Chulbul Pandey from Dabangg franchise is set to get an animated avatar. Interestingly, this is set to be an adaptation of a Bollywood blockbuster where the lead character is himself and not a child avatar. Interestingly, the 52 episode half-an-hour series is being produced by Arbaaz Khan, who has been a part of the Dabangg franchise as a filmmaker and an actor. Confirming the report, Arbaaz said in a statement, “Dabangg’s biggest USP is that it is a complete family entertainer & thus, the next logical step to further grow the franchise was to enter the animation space. The medium offers unparalleled creative freedom with storytelling, and we can focus on shorter standalone stories instead of longer, linear narratives. Chulbul’s persona is larger than life and in animation, his adventures will be showcased as never seen before.” He also added, “We are very happy to be working with Cosmos-Maya on this glorious franchise which has won the heart of millions. The union has been organic in the sense that the franchise and the studio have both captured the pulse of the Indian masses with entertaining grassroots level storytelling and relatable narratives. Exciting times lie ahead.”
Well, we sure are excited to see this new chapter for Chulbul as this will be new terrain for him but we are sure Chulbul will win all the hearts as an animated character too! What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
