Some days ago, there were unconfirmed reports about Salman Khan’s film with brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri being titled 'Bharat'. Now, the Sultan actor has confirmed that Bharat is indeed the title. He also shared details about his much-anticipated Dabangg 3.

During a conversation with a daily, Salman said that the script for Dabangg 3 is locked and he will be shooting for it in between Agnihotri’s film. “The script of Dabangg 3 is ready. It’s going to start during Bharat, which is Atul and Alvira’s (Agnihotri) film that Ali (Abbas Zafar) is directing. That starts after Remo’s (D'souza) film. Atul’s film requires some gaps. So between the schedules for Atul’s film, I will shoot for Dabangg 3,” he said.

But, according to Salman, Dabangg 3 will have a twist. “The story starts with Dabangg 3 in the present and then it goes back to the past, and then comes back to the present day again. It will have a prequel portion, but only as a flashback,” he said.

Elaborating on this, he added, “So it’s Chulbul Pandey now and then — what has gone on in his life before part one and two. The flashback will show how Chulbul Pandey actually became Chulbul Pandey. The remaining part will be about what he’s up to now.”

Dabangg (2010) was directed by Abhinav Kashyap. The second movie was helmed by Salman's brother Arbaaz Khan. Although Salman didn’t reveal the director for Dabangg 3, he confirmed that it won’t be Arbaaz due to an unusual reason. “He gets very hyper so we asked him to chill and take rest. He will produce the film this time.”
