“Dabangg’s biggest USP is that it is a complete family entertainer and, thus, 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 in lieu of longer, linear narratives. Chulbul’s persona is larger than life and in animation his adventures will be showcased as never seen before,” said Salman’s brother Arbaaz Khan, producer of the original Dabangg series.


The animation studio Cosmos - Maya have been given the rights to produce the upcoming animated project.
