In the film's plotline, Chulbul Pandey is married to Rajjo (played by Sonakshi Sinha). Saiee's father Mahesh Manjrekar was featured in the first part of the series as Rajjo's drunkard father.

While talking about her daughter's debut, Mahesh had previously told Press Trust of India , "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."

Mahesh and Salman have shared screen space together as co-actors in several films such as Wanted, Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard and Jai Ho.

We all are very excited about it because the franchise Dabangg is very dear to us. My journey started from there, and it has completed nine years, so it’s my career and film’s anniversary. It’s a big day for all of us, and it’s very special. This film always makes me feel like a homecoming," the actress said.

Arbaaz Khan will play Makkhi, and Vinod Khanna's brother Pramod will play the character of Chulbul's father Prajapati Pandey. Kannada actor Sudeep is also a part of the film.
