While Salman Khan is all set to play 'Chulbul Pandey' once again in the film Dabangg 3, Sandalwood actor Kiccha Sudeep is said to play the antagonist in the same flick.

Director Prabhudheva has already presented the necessary narration to Sudeep, who has given the green signal to the cop drama verbally. However, it is yet to be officially confirmed.

Recently, Salman pleasantly surprised fans when he heaped praise on the teaser of Sudeep's upcoming Kannada film Pailwaan. Sudeep, who plays a wrestler in the movie, has worked hard for the role.

Salman, who played the role of a wrestler in the Bollywood film Sultan, praised Sudeep and wrote, "You have taken what we started to another level, all the best and congrats to the MAN, to the PAILWAAN."
