Salman Khan will reportedly commence work on ‘Tiger 3’ in Turkey, due to the pandemic concerns elsewhere. Originally, plans were put into place for the film to be shot in UAE.
A source told Mid-Day, “Having ensured that the pre-production began last December, Adi wants to begin the film on schedule. Since the UAE is witnessing a spike in cases, Maneesh and he are now discussing the possibility of heading to Istanbul first and wrapping up the required portions with Salman, who has given his bulk dates from March.” The producer has sent a team to Turkey for a quick recce. “The Yash Raj Films’ production team, which had gone to Dubai and Abu Dhabi for Pathan’s recce last month, stayed on for Tiger 3. Simultaneously, another batch is scouting for locations in the Turkish city. The director-producer duo will take a final call basis the feedback of these teams.”
Khan is set to begin preparing for his role as Avinash Singh Rathore, alongside Katrina Kaif. The source added, “Salman will sport a lean look in the movie. He will train with fitness expert Rajendra Dhole, who has previously worked with Tiger Shroff, Aayush Sharma and Disha Patani. Rajesh Rai, who had trained the actor for Dabangg 3, will oversee his fitness programme.”
