Salman Khan's Tiger Zinda Hai has become huge, thanks to a 65-day schedule in Abu Dhabi which will begin on May 4

Salman Khan will reprise the role of a spy in his December release Tiger Zinda Hai. The film is a sequel to the 2012 blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger. The actor will reprise his role of a spy in the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial which features him opposite Katrina Kaif again for the sequel.

The first schedule of the action flick took place in Austria wherein both the actors shot breathtaking sequences with 100 crew members from Bollywood and Hollywood. The second schedule of the film will be held in Mumbai wherein the final stage is slated to be held in Abu Dhabi and Morocco.

For the Abu Dhabi slot, it is learnt that more than 150 people are working on the construction of a massive set in the city. The team had built the set for Star Wars in the city four years ago. The 65-day shooting schedule will kickstart from May 4 which involves both Salman and Katrina. Given the massive budget, it is likely that the climax of the much-awaited film will take place in the Middle East.

Zafar said,”A film like Tiger Zinda Hai requires a certain scale, which we found in Abu Dhabi. Keeping all the practical measures in mind, the kind of support we got from twofour54 on the infrastructure was phenomenal. That along with some stunning real locations makes shooting in Abu Dhabi special.”

Salman Khan, who plays the title role, said. “Tiger Zinda Hai is a film of sizeable scale and context. Abu Dhabi, with a variety of locations, and gracious hosts, is ideal for shooting a film like this one. I hope that the entire unit will enjoy our time here.”

Katrina Kaif, who reprises her role of Zoya in the upcoming film, said, “Tiger Zinda Hai shifts to different locations across the globe, and Abu Dhabi fits in perfectly with our story. Additionally, it provides all the comforts and conveniences that a film unit needs. I look forward to shooting in eye-catching locations and on the impressive set here. According to reports, UAE’s armed forces will provide military equipment including choppers for shooting.  Meanwhile, the construction of a 20,000 square metre back lot has already begun with the workers toiling hard to make the set ready before the shooting commences.

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, TZH also features Ranvir Shorey, Paresh Rawal and Girish Karnad in pivotal roles. Ek Tha Tiger was directed by Kabir Khan.
