"I don't need a man opposite Katrina in my film"
Actors Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are all set to reunite for the third instalment in the Tiger series which is expected to go on floors in March 2021.
The two actors were last seen together in Bharat (2019). Salman and Katrina are currently shooting for their current commitments.
After wrapping them up, the lead actors will kick off Tiger 3 in March 2021.
Katrina recently started shooting for Phone Bhoot (2021) which is being helmed by Mirzapur-fame Gurmeet Singh.
The film also stars Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ishan Khatter.
Simultaneously, Salman is also busy with Antim – The Final Truth.
The film is a remake of the successful Marathi film, Mulshi Pattern (2018) and is being directed by Mahesh Manjrekar.
The actor is also doing a guest appearance in Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film Pathan.
After finishing these projects, Salman and Katrina will start shooting for the first schedule of Tiger 3 in Mumbai.
The film will probably hit the floors in the third week of March 2021. This will be followed by the second schedule, for which the actors will fly to the Middle East.
The third and fourth schedules, however, are being planned for Mumbai again as of now.
It is also reported that the upcoming instalment will have a huge budget and will be grander and more lavish than the previous films.
Meanwhile, reportedly Katrina has already started going through the outfits and looks for the movie.
However, it remains to be seen whether the current title of the film would be the final one. Speaking about this, a source said:
“It is not pucca that ‘Tiger 3’ will remain the film’s title, but in all probability, it will not be changed.
“On date, it’s a working title.”
The film’s producers, Yash Raj Films are also looking for a new face to play the role of the villain.
Sajjad Delafrooz, a new actor, had earlier played the antagonist in Tiger Zinda Hai (2017).
While the first movie in the franchise was directed by Kabir Singh, Ali Abbas Zafar will direct the third instalment, just like he had done with the second.
Zafar is also directing Katrina Kaif in another upcoming film where she plays a superwoman. It is slated to go on floors in July 2021.
Commenting on the upcoming venture, Zafar said:
“I don’t need a man opposite Katrina in my film. And, we will be shooting in Poland, Georgia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Uttarakhand.”
Tiger 3 will be Salman and Katrina’s ninth film together.
