Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, the all-time blockbuster couple who have reunited for the much-anticipated Tiger 3, were scheduled to fly to New Delhi in mid-January for a major shooting period that would have primarily seen the actors conclude principal shooting on the highly-anticipated film. However, because to the omicron threat and a high increase of COVID-19 cases across India, including New Delhi, Yash Raj Films has postponed this shooting schedule.
A trade source informer reveals, “The time is not conducive to plan big outdoor schedules. Omicron threat is real and it is only wise that the makers are choosing to be cautious at this sensitive time. The intense 15-day schedule, which was expected to begin on January 12th, stands postponed as of now, given the surge of coronavirus cases across India, including New Delhi. This schedule will now be planned and executed at a later stage.”

“Tiger 3 team has visited several cities across the world as Tiger and Zoya are on their most deadly mission yet in the third installment of this action spectacle franchise. The entire team needs a special round of applause for leaving no stone unturned for brilliantly completing challenging shoot schedules during the pandemic because of the scale that director Maneesh Sharma and YRF wanted to achieve. So, if they have decided to postpone the Delhi schedule, it is definitely a very well thought-out decision from the production house,” the informer added.
