Bollywood superstar feels that for a nine years, he has lived Chulbul Pandey as a “parallel existence”. Salman Khan’s stardom has offered many of his other screen avatars, the actor has now opted to become a part of the creative process driving Chulbul’s charisma. He has tried his had as a screenwriter for the lucrative franchise with the upcoming Dabangg 3.

“Working on a popular character and franchise is not that easy. Audiences have certain expectations from the franchise and it is imperative that the next installment should meet the criteria,” Salman Khan tells reporters.

Getting ready to release the third “Dabangg” film with an obvious advantage. “It is indeed a benefit that the material has been tested and approved by the audience in the form of appreciation over the past two installments,” explains the actor, about the blockbuster series that has played a big role in making his stature as a pop icon to an altogether different space.

If Chulbul has come to share a parallel existence with him, turning writer of the series was in a way a form of self-expression.

“While playing any character on screen, I take 25 percent of that character back home. In the last nine years, with two successful installments of the franchise, I have been living this character and seeing constant love from the audiences for the character Chulbul. There have been strong thoughts and curiosity in all our minds about the origin of Chulbul Pandey, and his journey — of how a common man became Chulbul Pandey,” says Salman Khan.

Dabangg 3 dates the back story of Chulbul and brings in Prabhudeva as director. While Sonakshi Sinha will play as Chulbul’s wife Rajjo, Mahesh Manjrekar’s daughter Saiee makes her debut as Chulbul’s romantic interest. Kannada superstar Kichcha Sudeep is the antagonist in the film.

Salman Khan underplays the idea that a four-language release is meant to be a winning strategy against piracy. “The franchise has received immense love from the audience and so I am not worried about piracy. I trust my fans. They will only definitely prefer to experience this journey in the theatre. If the content is good, people across the country would want to watch regardless of language and culture,” he says, adding with a note of confidence: “Hindi audiences have always shown immense love for South content. The South audiences will give the same kind of love for Hindi films as well.”

At 53 years of age, his recent films Tubelight, Race 3 and Bharat have not done well. With every release of the film’s fate, his stardom only seems to grow.

“I am always intrigued by and aware of what the audience would like to see. The amount of hard work I have done in my first few films is the same amount of hard work I have put in my recent releases, along with a little more experience and awareness,” he says, and then adds: “Of course there is a competition from the newer lot of actors, but that’s in a good way.”

If there is something else beyond Chulbul Pandey that has defined Salman Khan’s aura in recent years, it is his charity initiative Being Human. The foundation has changed countless lives for the better. But, at some level, has Being Human changed his life, too? “Being Human is my heart and soul. I have been active and will continue to help around as much I can. Yes, I can says it has changed my life at a certain level.”

The actor spoke about his prospects for the future: “There is no gameplan, I go with my instinct,” he says, with characteristic candor.
