The screening was attended by Salman Khan and his brothers Arbaaz and Sohail Khan. Salman's brother-in-law and LoveYatri actor Aayush Sharma also watched the film. Needless to say, the film's director Prabhu Deva and Kichcha Sudeep, who plays the antagonist in the film, attended the screening.

In a recent interview with news agency PTI, the film's lead actor Salman Khan revealed that Dabangg was originally meant to be a dark film and that his brother Arbaaz Khan and actor Randeep Hooda were approached for the film. However, Salman Khan was finally zeroed in as Chulbul Pandey and the rest is history. "It was a very dark film, small film to be made under Rs 2 crore. At that point of time, it had Randeep Hooda and Arbaaz. So Arbaaz said he has been approached for this and it's a good one so just hear it," PTI quoted Salman as saying. Arbaaz Khan later produced the film and also starred as Salman's brother Makhanchan Pandey.
Dabangg 3 is the third installment of the super hit Dabangg series. The film will be directed by Prabhu Deva. Just like its previous renditions, Dabangg 3 has also been produced by Salman's brother Arbaaz Khan. Salman and Sonakshi Sinha have reprised their roles as Chulbul Pandey and Rajjo, respectively while Saiee Manjrekar and Sudeep are the latest additions to the Dabangg family.
