Salman’s ‘Dabangg’ comes to life at Dubai theme park
Superstar Salman Khan will be back as Chulbul Pandey from his hit film “Dabangg”, and this time for a live stunt show titled Dabangg: Stunt Spectacular for Bollywood Parks Dubai.
Bollywood Parks Dubai, the world’s first Bollywood-inspired theme park and a part of Dubai Parks and Resorts, on Thursday released a behind the scenes video. The action-filled video stars Salman, Arbaaz Khan, who featured in and also produced the 2010 film, read a statement.
In the video, Salman introduces the audience to the show and sets the scene for a spectacular stunt performance. The 50-year-old actor says he loves to get into the Chulbul Pandey avatar.
“As soon as the moustache and uniform is on, the voice changes, the gait and my whole personality changes. Today, I’m playing my character of Chulbul Pandey, a cop,” Salman said.
Arbaaz said: “No one could have played Chulbul’s role better than Salman Khan, as he added a dash of his own personality. While the script offers one thing, Salman had brought a lot more to the table.”
Set in an abandoned warehouse, the attraction will take the spectators on an adventure with police officer Chulbul Pandey, where he has to rescue his damsel Rajjo played by Sonakshi Sinha in the film and her friends from fictitious goons.
Shujaat Saudagar has directed the introduction to the show.
Located at Bollywood Parks Dubai within the Rustic Ravine zone, the live stunt show will be full of action and drama.
When asked to explain the stunt show, Salman said: “Expect action, some weird funny dancing steps and humour.”
Salman and Arbaaz shot the video together. And Salman said that “as far as we are not working together, we are much better in private life. As soon as we start working…”
Completing the rest of the sentence for Salman, Arbaaz said: “We make ‘Dabangg’ together. We are two incredibly creative people, and together we bring out the best for the audience.”
The park will open on October 31.
