Salman Khan, the macho man of bollywood who plays the part of a corrupt police officer Chulbul Pandey in the hit film Dabangg won accolades for his outstanding performance in the movie.  It seems producer Arbaaz Khan had kept 20 days aside for the promotion of the movie. Salman Khan was also called Robinhood Pandey in Dabangg. It seems Salman Khan had even gone to the extent of shedding his muscles to look unfit in the character of Chulbul Pandey. Most of the film was picturized in Wai and some songs were shot exclusively in Dubai.
