Dabangg offered everything from humour, violence, suspense and romance. Chulbul's larger than life personality and his whistleblowing dialogues are still fresh in our minds. As we celebrate a decade of Chulbul Pandey, fans start a megatrend 'DECADE OF ICONIC DABANGG' on social media.
Fans would cheer, shout out loud in encouragement when Chulbul would beat up the bad guys and wolf-whistle when he shared a romantic moment with Rajjo. There is no other actor who could have brought Robinhood Pandey's character to life carried out such a script and still made it look fun.
To mark the candidness of Chulbul, fans started the trend. Some of the fan tweets read as:

His jerking dance movements, his rather artistic shades- everything became a trend amongst the fans. Salman created a signature style for Chulbul Pandey - tight khaki uniform pants, well-groomed moustache, classic Rayban gold-rimmed aviators that were tucked into the collar behind his neck during action sequences. This new style redefined the definition of cops in Bollywood.
Dabangg was gritty and took us on drama-fueled joy rides. While this was a comedy at heart, it still offered a bit in the action department and was an inspiration to forthcoming movies and continues to be Salman's best.
