Sharing filming details, the producer says, since the film spans many periods, it will require a lot of travel and elaborate sets. “We will be shooting in Abu Dhabi and Spain, besides Punjab and Delhi in India. Prep in every department will be elaborate and happening even as we speak. Casting will be our main agenda over the next three months and since it’s a character-driven story, we will take actors who fit the part. It won’t be about getting names together but will be honest in its depiction,” Atul promises.
This will be Salman’s third film with Ali Abbas Zafar after Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. For now, Sallu is simultaneously shooting for Bigg Boss and his film, Tiger Zinda Hai. It is one of the most anticipated films of this year as it brings together Salman and Kat together on the big screen after a long gap of five years.
