Salman-Katrina to head to the capital in January for final major schedule of Tiger 3; to shoot dramatic scenes during the 15-day leg
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif
While her wedding celebrations have kept Katrina Kaif busy through the better part of December, her Tiger 3 co-star Salman Khan has been giving shape to the espionage thriller in Mumbai. We hear the leads will head to New Delhi in mid-January for the final major schedule of the Maneesh Sharma-helmed venture. After that, the director will conduct the remaining shoot in Mumbai, before calling it a wrap on the film that rolled in March this year.
A trade source reveals that the team has lined up a 15-day stint in the capital. “Salman and Katrina haven’t faced the camera together after their Europe schedule in September. They will reunite for the Delhi leg where they will film some dramatic scenes. It will mark Katrina’s return to the set after her wedding. In the past two months, the director has focused entirely on Salman’s character Avinash Singh Rathore aka Tiger, canning several action scenes with him at Yash Raj Studios in Andheri. Earlier this month, the team began shooting at the SRPF Grounds in Goregaon,” says the source.
Conducting the Delhi schedule with the superstars won’t be without its share of hurdles. Anticipating the excitement it will generate in the capital, producer Aditya Chopra has instructed his team to begin the groundwork to ensure a smooth shoot. The source adds, “The crew will have a tough job — right from crowd management to ensuring that the stars’ looks are not leaked. Even though it will be tricky, Aditya Chopra wants to film these portions at real locations.”
