As is true of any Salman Khan offering, there has been enough interest around Tiger 3. But the hype around the spy thriller intensified this week as the leading man’s long-haired and bearded look went viral online. Now, mid-day has found out further details about the Russia schedule. It turns out that among other scenes, Khan and Katrina Kaif shot for a hyper-stylised chase sequence around hotspots of St Petersburg under the watchful gaze of director Maneesh Sharma.

The sequence, filmed over six days, comes at a crucial juncture in the narrative. “In the film, Salman — who plays RAW agent Avinash Singh Rathore — will sport multiple disguises. The chase scene sees him flaunting the long-haired look as he, along with Katrina, chase down one of the baddies around the streets of the city, including opposite St Isaac’s Cathedral,” says a trade source. The action director has designed the set-piece such that it will offer glimpses of the beautiful city as Khan’s pursuit takes him from one mode of transport to another. “It begins with the actors inside a tram, then a horse-drawn carriage, after which they hop on to a car, and finally reach the underground metro. Since each metro station is uniquely decorated with details about Russia’s past, the makers wanted at least one scene to be set in a station.”

While fans from Russia continue to post their selfies with Khan, the superstar headed to Istanbul on Wednesday. “After that, a schedule in Vienna is lined up. Producer Aditya Chopra doesn’t want to spare any expense for the actioner.”
