Now according to the media reports, Salman Khan's friend Mahesh Manjrekar's daughter Saiee will be seen opposite Salman in Dabangg 3.

It is known that Kannada actor Sudeep is playing the leading villain in Dabangg 3 and source talking about his role said, “His character is more like the parallel lead rather than the stereotypical villain. He starts off on a positive track but situations eventually turn him into the bad guy. He is involved in a Tom and Jerry fight with Salman and there are several confrontations scenes between the two.”
