Yes, the superstar has confirmed that the film will be released sometime in December and that shooting for the same will begin on April 1. And no, if this date has gotten you thinking that it is a fast one that Bhai is pulling a fast one on all of us, the no. This is an official statement. So you all can rejoice. Salman Khan's Dabangg 3 To Go On Floors Sooner Than We All Expected; Will Start Rolling in April 2019

Earlier we had reported that the film will start rolling in April, but here's the date. It can be recalled that back in January, director Arbaaz Khan had confirmed the sequel to Dabangg 2 being in the pipeline, but it was being said that Dabangg 3 would be a prequel to Dabangg. Sonakshi Sinha on Shooting for Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3: It Is Like Homecoming for Me

At a press conference earlier today, the same was confirmed by Salman himself. See the tweet below:

Since Dabangg 3 will be a prequel, Sonakshi Sinha will have a minuscule role in the film. There were rumours that Kareena Kapoor Khan was to be a part of the project, but in an interaction with Mumbai Mirror, director Arbaaz Khan had revealed that she was not a part of Dabangg 3. Given Bebo and Arbaaz's ex-wife's close friendship, it is only natural that she won't be approached.
