Released in 2010, Dabangg had turned out to be a huge money spinner at the box office and even won a National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment. 

The film marked Salman Khan’s rise at the box office and was the second film after Wanted that started his golden run. 

Two years later, its sequel titled Dabangg 2 was released which was a big box office success but failed to receive the critical acclaim of its prequel.

Years later in 2019, Salman once again returned to his iconic character of Chulbul Pandey with Dabangg 3. However, this time the film failed critically as well as commercially. 

It seemed like we may have seen the last of Chulbul Pandey on the big screen, at least for the near future, but that is not the case as Bhai is not yet done with the character. 

Recently, there were reports that filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia is currently busy writing the script of Dabangg 4 and if all goes well, he will also helm the fourth installment in the franchise. 

When asked about the same, Tigmanshu confirmed in a recent Bollywood Hungama interview that he is indeed working on the script of Dabangg 4. He said, “Abhi writing chal rahi hai. Uspe jab sab sehmati ho jayegi fir decide karenge. (Currently, it’s in the writing stage. Once the script is finalised we will see about the film direction.)”

When further prompted how interesting it will be to see him directing Salman, the filmmaker left it all on fate saying, “Dekhte hain sab kismat pe chod rakha hai yaar..”

He was further asked if he has interacted with Salman’s father,  the legendary writer Salim Khan, he said, “Not yet” and added it is not possible to move ahead without consulting him first. “Even I wouldn’t want to move ahead with the script without consulting him. I like him a lot.” 

He further praised Salim Khan and said one learns a lot just by being in his company. 

As for the Dabangg franchise, while Salman Khan plays the lead character of Chulbul Pandey, Arbaaz Khan plays his half-brother Makhanchand Pandey and Sonakshi Sinha plays Rajjo.

It will be interesting to see what new narrative Tigmanshu Dhulia brings to the almost dead franchise with his unique flair and experience as an acclaimed filmmaker.
