Chulbul Pandey from the Dabangg franchise is one of the most loved characters played by Salman Khan. Now this iconic character is all set to be a part of an animation series.

This animated spin-off will be created by the animation studio, Cosmos-Maya, founded by filmmaker Ketan Mehta and actress Deepa Sahi. The 52-part series, with an average length of 30 minutes, will be produced by Arbaaz Khan, who has been a part of the Dabangg franchise as a filmmaker and actor. 

In a statement, Arbaaz said, "Dabangg's biggest USP is that it is a complete family entertainer, and so 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."

The show will feature the animated avatars of all the characters of the franchise, including Sonakshi Sinha's Rajjo, Prajapati, played by the late Vinod Khanna, and the three antagonists, Chhedi Singh (Sonu Sood), Bachcha Bhaiya (Prakash Raj) and Baali (Sudeep). The first season will go into production this year.

Meanwhile, Salman is enjoying the lockdown with family and friends at his Karjat farmhouse. The actor has been keeping himself busy shooting videos and songs and releasing them online. The actor also launched a personal care and grooming brand recently.
