When the shooting for the film Dabangg 3 started there seemed to be a rumor that suggested that Dimple Kapadia would be returning in the third part to play the mother of Salman Khan. Well, this is one of the weirdest rumors one can hear about the film. People close to the film laughed when they heard about and the makers said that how come a lady who died in the first part itself would return playing the role of a mother called Naini Devi.
However, Vinod Khanna was seen playing the role of the father in the film but as he is no more in this world, he is being missed on the sets. When asked if they have plans to resurrect Naidi Devi the Dabangg 3 team plainly rejected the idea saying that the makers have no plans ot bring Naini Devi back on the silver screen with Salman Khan not even in the background songs or flashback.
Now, the makers are on a hunt for the role of Salman Khan’s father – Prajapati Pandey as we see the untimely death of the veteran actor. He was seen in both the films – Dabangg 1 and Dabangg 2. As per reports, Salman Khan wants to engage Dharmendra to play the character of his father in the third part. We know Salman Khan openly idolizes and thus the veteran actor would be the most suitable one for the character. Well, let’s see how things would move but at this point in time, the issue as to who would play the role of his father is debatable.
