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 espionage thriller.

Reportedly, a lavish 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 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 film is not completely off the table. Reportedly, Chopra plans to take the film across seven countries. The 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.
