A source says, “YRF felt that Emraan fits the role as a T. He is a fine, intense actor and that quality won him the rle.”
Buzz on the film has been that it will take off from where Shah Rukh Khan-led ‘Pathan’ ends. Reportedly, Salman has a few minutes role in the climax of ‘Pathan’. The first schedule of ‘Tiger 3’ will be in Mumbai and will kick off sometime in March 2020, mostly the third week. Emraan is expected to join in March itself. The first schedule will kick off in YRF Studios wherein Emraan will suit a few scenes with Katrina and Salman. The second schedule will be in the Middle East and the third and final schedule is likely to be in Mumbai again.
Salman and Katrina have previously played the lead pair in ‘Yuvvraaj’, ‘Partner’, ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya’, ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’. ‘Bodyguard’ had Katrina in only a song, while Salman made a brief appearance in ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani’ playing himself. In ‘Hello’, both made special appearances.
