Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are gearing up for the final phase of their next espionage thriller, Tiger 3, helmed by Maneesh Sharma. According to insiders, the duo would begin filming in New Delhi in mid-January for a major phase of the film.
“It will be a 15-day schedule thereby calling it a film wrap for the duo. Salman and Katrina will shoot at real locations in the national capital and preparations are already underway to ensure a smooth schedule. Being an extensive schedule at real locations, the crew is well prepared to manage the huge crowd that’s expected to gather at shooting spots to get a glimpse of the actors. High level security will be in place to protect their looks from leaking,” revealed a source close to the development to Pinkvilla.
The idea of Tiger 3 is said to carry Tiger and Zoya throughout numerous cities around the world on what is said to be their deadliest mission to date, according to the source. “Both Salman and Katrina are at their fittest best for this schedule. They realize that this is an important schedule for the film, and have worked towards maintaining their respective physiques too,” the source added.
The Yash Raj Production is said to be Bollywood’s most expensive action film, and it was shot entirely during the pandemic.
“It was a challenging shoot but Aditya Chopra, Maneesh Sharma and the entire crew have left no stone unturned to give a world class experience to the audience. The scale is humongous with action being taken to the next level. Be assured, a glimpse of Tiger and the audience will want to celebrate their Bhai on the big screen and increase their anticipation further around the release date announced by YRF,” the source added.
Ek Tha Tiger launched the Tiger franchise in 2012, followed by Tiger Zinda Hai in 2017. Both portions were massive blockbusters at the film office, grossing a total of Rs 520 crore. Emraan Hashmi will play the antagonist alongside Salman Khan in Tiger 3.
