Earlier the makers — brothers Arbaaz and Salman Khan — were looking at the last week of December for the film’s release.
Talking about the clash game at box office, Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 will not clash with Ranveer Singh-starrer Simmba. After looking at Ranveer’s performance in Padmaavat, Salman has decided discretion was the better part of valour even if the hero is a Dabangg one.
Earlier the makers — brothers Arbaaz and Salman Khan — were looking at the last week of December for the film’s release. But after realising that Simmba was being slotted for the week after Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero, they decided not to opt for that date and push the film ahead by a month.
This decision makes sense for the makers, as they will be adjusting the shoot of two films — Bharat and Dabangg 3 directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and Prabhudeva respectively. Thus, ensuring that the shoot as well as the release can be phased out. Now, Dabangg 3 will release on Republic Day.
