He is joined by his younger brother Makkhi, who is new to the police force and attempts to emulate his older brother in every sticky situation.

Produced by Cosmos-Maya and Arbaaz Khan Productions, Dabangg – The Animated Series is aimed at kids and fans of the franchise. In a press release, Salman Khan said, “Chulbul Pandey is a very special character for me because of the love that audiences have showered on him, and the movie, for over 10 years. Animation has opened up yet another dimension for this character.”

Producer Arbaaz Khan added, “Dabangg, for me, goes beyond just a film or a franchise. The thought behind creating Chulbul Pandey was to make him a household favourite, and the biggest compliment comes from all the love that this character has received from children.”
