10 sept - 5 yrs since Dabangg... Which means 5 years of Sonakshi! I am because of u, thank u for sharing this amazing journey with me? Sonakshi Sinha (@sonakshisinha) September 10, 2015
Sonakshi, whose debut in the 2010 blockbuster made her a star overnight, thanked Salman and his brother Arbaaz, who produced as well as acted, in a separate tweet:
Dabangg owes much of its success to Salman Khan's dialoguebaazi as rough and tough cop Chulbul Pandey but as village belle Rajjo, Sonakshi Sinha got one of the film's best remembered lines: "Thappad se darr nahi lagta saab, pyaar se lagta hai."
Sonakshi reprised her role as Rajjo in 2012 sequel Dabangg 2 and there is also talk of a third film.
The five-year anniversary is being celebrated by fans with a Twitter trend. Salman, meanwhile, has made no comment thus far (5 years vs 25, remember?).
