Good news for Salman Khan fans as Arbaaz Khan Productions has struck a deal with an India and Singapore-based animation studio Cosmos-Maya to produce an animated spin-off series on ‘Dabangg’.

‘Dabangg’ was a superhit film starring Salman Khan in the leading role. His character named Chulbul Pandey became popular with the masses and gained appreciation from critics both. It is a popular movie franchise now. 

The animated series will have Chulbul Pandey as the cop avatar. 

The first season will go into production this year. 

In a statement, Arbaaz Khan said, "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."

He added, "We are very happy to be working with Cosmos-Maya on this glorious franchise which has won the heart of millions. The union has been organic in the sense that the franchise and the studio have both captured the pulse of the Indian masses with entertaining grassroots level storytelling and relatable narratives. Exciting times lie ahead."

The show will feature the animated avatars of all iconic characters of the franchise including Sonakshi Sinha's Rajjo, Prajapati, played by the late Vinod Khanna in the films and the three antagonists Chhedi Singh (Sonu Sood), Bachcha Bhaiya (Prakash Raj) and Baali (Sudeep).
