Ek Tha Tiger (2012), starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, has become one of the superstar’s most popular films. Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), the sequel, was also a box office success. As a result, it’s not surprise that the film’s producers, YRF, opted to add a third franchise to the film. Tiger 3 will be released in 2022 and is projected to be one of Bollywood’s biggest films.
Tiger 3 began filming earlier this year in Mumbai. Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and director Maneesh Sharma have now reached to Russia after shooting some key scenes. A source told Bollywood Hungama, “Tiger 3’s shoot is currently taking place in the city of St Petersburg. The Russia schedule began with a grand car chase action sequence. The Indian and Russian units seemed very well prepared and also adhered to the Covid-19 safety guidelines. Also, the Russian authorities are providing complete cooperation so that the shoot takes place without any hiccups.”
“Despite pandemic restrictions, Aditya Chopra has made it clear that there should be no compromise on the grandeur and scale of the film. The car chase sequence is also being executed keeping in mind Adi’s vision for the film. The film surely would be something to watch out for, especially on the big screen,” the source added.
According to sources, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and the entire Tiger 3 team will head to Turkey and Austria when the Russia schedule is completed.
Emraan Hashmi plays the villain in Tiger 3, which is one of the film’s greatest USP. He is not, however, on the Russian schedule, according to the source, he’ll join the team in Turkey.
