New Delhi, July 19 (ANI): If recent buzz is to be believed, actress Parineeti Chopra is being considered to play main female lead in 'Dabangg 3'.

Spotboye quoted a source close to Salman Khan, as saying, "Arbaaz Khan producer of Dabangg 3 feels that Parineeti would be suitable for Rajjo's role (played by Sonakshi Sinha in the previous two installments). He will approach her very soon."

Earlier, it was reported that Sonakshi Sinha has been dropped out of the hit franchise over an alleged friction with Salman Khan, which started when Sonakshi turned down Arbaaz Khan's production 'Dolly Ki Doli'.

Reportedly, Salman and Sonakshi also had a showdown at Salman's sister Arpita's wedding in November 2014, and since then, the two are not on talking terms.

Previously, a source as was quoted as saying, "Salman is not keen on working with Sonakshi. So, the producers are looking out for another actress. Nobody has been finalised yet."

Meanwhile, Parineeti and the 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' actor were recently spotted together at restaurant Yauatcha in the national capital post launching Sania Mirza's autobiography 'Ace Against Odds'.(ANI)
