New Delhi: The question of whether Salman Khan is doing YRF’s Tiger vs Pathaan has been doing the rounds for a long time now. Salman Khan, who is currently gearing up for the release of Tiger 3 along with Katrina Kaif, has seemingly confirmed that he is doing the movie with Shah Rukh Khan. There are strong reports that Salman and Shah Rukh will begin filming for Tiger vs Pathaan after the release of their respective movies Tiger 3 and Dunki.
In an interview with Variety, Salman was asked about the timeline for Tiger vs Pathaan and when he would start shooting for the same. “Tiger is always ready – so whenever things are locked – I will be there,” the Bollywood superstar said.
The spy universe includes the first and second installments of Tiger film, War, and the recently released Pathaan. Including War 2, Tiger vs Pathaan becomes the seventh movie in the Umbrella franchise. The upcoming title of the universe includes Tiger 3, which will hit the big screens on Diwali, and War 2.
Tiger vs Pathaan will reportedly be directed by Siddharth Anand and he is reportedly charging Rs 40 crore for the same. “Siddharth Anand will be paid Rs 40 crores as directorial remuneration for Tiger vs Pathaan. This is the highest that a banner has paid any filmmaker to date and it’s their way of felicitating Siddharth Anand for living on to the expectations of delivering tentpole entertainers time and again. YRF has also bestowed Sid with the responsibility of what is the most ambitious script to date written by Aditya Chopra as it pits Salman Khan against Shah Rukh Khan,” a source cited by Bollywood Hungama claimed earlier this year, News18 reported.
