Salman Khan is all set to join Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham in UAE for the next schedule of ‘Pathan’. Salman, who has just finished shooting for his upcoming movie ‘Antim- The Final Truth’ directed by Mahesh Manjrekar, has been reportedly allotted 15 days for ‘Pathan’. After shooting for the spy thriller, he will move on to shoot for ‘Tiger 3’ from March onwards.
Sources revealed, “Salman Khan has a prolonged action scene in Pathan which will be shot in UAE. It features not just him, but also Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham. Apart from this, a special entry scene is being designed for his appearance as Tiger. It’s going to be a massive stint with all the superstars in the United Arab Emirates,” a source told Bollywood Hungama, adding further that Salman is being paid upfront fees for his appearance as Tiger in Pathan. “The reunion of Salman and SRK, along with the never seen before action scene on Burj Khalifa with SRK is going to be among the major highlights of Pathan.”
While the exact dates are yet to be finalized, it is certain that the action sequence featuring Salman will be shot on February 15th. The source added, “While team Pathan has shot some chase sequences and action scenes at Burj Khalifa with body doubles, the Pathan gang of Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham will fly down to UAE within a week to do their respective scenes. It’s a big schedule of around 50 days, and the majority of action and thrill unfolds in UAE,”
It is believed that Hrithik Roshan has also been approached to do a cameo in ‘Pathan’. If this fructifies, the movie will be a crossover between three protagonists, i.e. Tiger (Ek Tha Tiger), Kabir (War), and Pathan.
With ‘Pathan’, Aditya Chopra plans to target either Gandhi Jayanti or Diwali, during the second half of 2021.
