Parineeti Chopra to play Rajjo in Dabangg 3
Romours have been making the rounds for a while now that Sonakshi Sinha has bagged the role of Rajjo in forthcoming installment of Dabangg franchise. A source close to Salman said, “Arbaaz (Khan, producer) of Dabangg 3 feels that Parineeti would be suitable for Rajjo’s role (played by Sonakshi in the previous two installments). He will approach her very soon.”
Prior to this there were speculations that it was Salman’s unwillingness on the actress name to play Aarfa in his latest release Sultan. But now that is the thing of the past. If reports are to be believed, Salman and Parineeti were spotted together for a meal after the actor launched Sania Mirza’s autobiography Ace Against Odds.
In the last two instalments of the successful franchise, Sonakshi enacted the role of Salman’s love interest but now the producer-director Arbaaz Khan wanted a replacement. However, no official announcement has been made, but it would be interesting to see what Parineeti brings to the table. According to media reports, the third instalment will be a prequel and is slated to release on Eid 2017.
