What's more, Salman plays a cop in both the films.
"It has to be a completely different character. Otherwise, the audience will say we are repeating. We are working on it. The target is Eid and we will make it on time. I work fast," said Prabhudheva, currently on a two-day break in Chennai to meet his sons.
Prabhu has been a favourite with Salman ever since they worked together as director and actor in the 2009 Eid blockbuster "Wanted". He says "Dabangg 3" is going to please Salmaniacs.
"It is a typical Salman Khan film. Doing a 'Dabangg' film was a challenge to me. I was new to the 'Dabangg' universe. Everyone else (in the unit) had worked in the first and second parts of the series. Of course, I had seen both the earlier films. So, I made an effort to get into the groove. Luckily for me I didn't fall flat," he said.
Because of the double commitment, Prabhu doesn't get to spend much time with his children. "I hardly get time to be with them. I enjoy working and I need to work to ensure their future. But I also need time to be with them," said Prabhu.
