Mumbai– The much-awaited “Dabangg 3” is all set to release on December 20, and a highlight of the film is Salman Khans hand-to-hand combat with the antagonist, played by Kichcha Sudeep, and 500 of his men in the climax of the film.

“It is going to be a treat for all Bollywood buffs with an epic climax scene where Salman Khan will go hand to hand against Kichcha Sudeep and his army of 500 men.
