With Salman Khan’s latest hit ‘Race 3’ rocking the box office, his next ‘Bharat’ will no longer be shot in London.
According to Mid-Day, there were plans to shoot ‘Bharat’ in London by July-end, however, this idea has now been dropped. It will now be shot in other foreign locales due to Khan’s conviction in the black-buck poaching case. He is currently out on bail.
A source said, “There is a fair chance that Salman will not be allowed to enter the UK given his conviction in the case. He is currently out on bail and has been permitted to perform in the US because the concerts had been announced beforehand. Bharat was to kick off in London, followed by stints in Spain, Poland and Portugal. But, it will be difficult for Salman to procure permission to shoot in any of the European countries for extended period of time. As a result, Zafar as only briefed the team about the first schedule that will be held in Punjab.”
As well as Abu Dhabi, Canada and a number of other countries are being decided on. The source added, “Canada is another option. However, with the current terms of his conviction, Salman can’t shoot a straight 45-day schedule outside India. Even if the courts allow it, it may draw unnecessary attention from people. The team has decided it’s best to avoid shooting overseas.”
