“Yes. It is true, he is launching my daughter Saiee in ‘Dabangg 3’,” Manjrekar told PTI. Saiee will be playing Salman’s love interest in “Dabangg 3”, which is said to be a prequel.
In the past, Manjrekar had hinted that Saiee might maker her Bollywood debut with “Dabangg 3”, which is being touted as a prequel film.
“At the end of the day if she wants to act, I am ok. I am not telling her what to do. I want her to learn on her own. She is very excited about the film. He must have seen some spark in her. Salman is a friend and I can’t say no to him plus my daughter also felt she had an inclination to acting,” he had previously told PTI.
