Tiger and Pathaan Cross over Mulled for Six Months: Sources
Fresh inputs into Pathaan’s cameo in Tiger 3 reveal that the action sequences of the cross-over were mulled over for six months. Director Maneesh Sharma and YRF head Aditya Chopra who wanted the scene to be a notch higher than Pathaan are said to have discussed the execution over months.
A source reveals, “When SRK and Salman’s sequence was planned for Pathaan, the makers realized that such cross-overs of super-spies will need to go a notch higher every single time it happens because that’s the biggest USP for audiences. So, the writer, Adi, and Maneesh went into a huddle and took six months to write and visualize Pathaan’s entry into Tiger’s timeline. Every detail of this shoot has been planned keeping in mind that it needs to deliver full-on paisa vasool entertainment that is also a spectacle for audiences.”
Shahrukh Khan will repay Salman Khan’s favors as he reprises his role in the Tiger franchise as hinted in Pathaan. The shooting will be done in Mumbai in April end. A week has been earmarked for the shoot of the two superstars. A source in the know assured fireworks whenever super spies cross over to each other films.
Tiger 3, the third rendition of the Tiger Franchise gets back Zoya and Tiger played by Salman and Katrina. Helmed by Maneesh Sharma, this will be the fifth series of the YRFs spy universe. Emraan Hashmi would be the latest addition who would play the antagonist.
