Salman says Raadhe will be a 'baap' in the cop-action drama genre. "Radhe was my character's name in Tere Naam (2003) and again, we used the same name for my character in 'Wanted' (2009). But this (Radhe) is a completely different film. Dabangg 3 Trailer: These Memes On Salman Khan and Sudeep’s Power-Packed Dialogues Are Unmissable!

It has nothing to do with Wanted'. If you want to go into that format or genre, then this (Radhe) will be a baap of Wanted," said Salman, about his upcoming film, while interacting with the media at the trailer launch of his next release, Dabangg 3. Salman attended the event with Dabangg 3 co-actors Sonakshi Sinha, Saiee Manjrekar, the film's director Prabhudheva, and producers Arbaaz Khan, Bhushan Kumar and Nikhil Dwivedi on Wednesday in Mumbai. Dabangg 3 Trailer Video: Salman Khan is Here To Tell Us The Interesting Story of How Chulbul Pandey Became ‘Policewala Gunda!’

"Radhe" is scheduled to hit the screens on Eid next year. A few days back, Salman Khan took to social media to announce the release date of the film. Sharing the motion poster, he wrote: "Aap he ne poocha tha 'Dabangg 3' ke baad kya? What and when? Yeh lo answer #EidRadheKi." On why he announced Radhe with the poster of Dabangg 3, he said: "If we had announced Radhe on its own, then Dabangg 3 would have taken a backseat, and people would have started talking only about 'Radhe'. That's why, we decided to do it in this particular manner."

The motion poster reads: "The story behind Chulbul Pandey.. Dabangg 3. 20th December.. aur hum aapke saath Christmas bhi manaenge aur Eid bhi.. Radhe Your Most Wanted Bhai, half good fully mad." Produced by Sohail Khan, Radhe will mark the third collaboration between Salman and Prabhudheva. The director helmed Salman's 2009 release Wanted and the upcoming Dabangg 3. There have been reports that Salman's "Bharata co-star Disha Patani will be seen sharing screen space "Radhe", but the news is yet to be confirmed.
