A. I am now looking forward to kids getting to see Chulbul Pandey in an animated avatar – this will set precedence for so much more. The opportunity to play a character that kids and families can watch together is absolutely fascinating and I’m glad I get to experiment with something like this – Chulbul is going to win hearts on Disney+ Hotstar VIP – So much to look forward too but in good time!
Q. What’s your next big surprise for fans?
A. My next big surprise – On May 31st when my beloved character Chulbul Pandey hits the screens with Dabangg – The Animated Series, I want everyone who showed love to Chulbul to continue showing love to him because I am incredibly proud of him and I hope he stays on to continue making a huge difference.
