As per recent reports, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif recently started shooting for the third installment of the Tiger series. The superstar was initially supposed to kick off the film in Istanbul. But the plans had to be changed owing to the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing number of cases in the country.
Instead, producer Aditya Chopra has arranged for his production design team to build a Turkish town in Mumbai where the lead cast will be shooting pivotal scenes of the Tiger 3.
Reportedly, an expensive set reflecting the architectural style of a quaint Turkish locale is being erected at the SRPF ground in Goregaon. Maneesh Sharma who is directing the film reportedly wants several heavy-duty action scenes with tanks and grenades in the backdrop as Salman's Tiger and Katrina's Zoya to take on the bad guys. The set is expected to be ready by the first week of April.
While the makers are setting up a Turkish town in the city, an outdoor schedule for the Tiger 3 is not completely off the table. Reportedly, Chopra plans to take the film across seven countries.
As per reports, The Tiger 3 team is expected to head to Istanbul and Dubai in June later this year. The set is being constructed as whenever they go to Istanbul, the team might not be able to go to the interiors of the country because of the pandemic.
