Katrina also spoke about her favourite Turkish series Dirilis: Ertugrul, which Salman said his mother also follows. Salman revealed Katrina loves the lead actor of the series. Dirilis: Ertugrul is about the Turkish warrior Ertugrul from the 13th century, one of the most famous warriors of his time and also the father of Osman (the founder of the Ottoman Empire).

As the conversation continued, Ersoy invited the actors to the country to spend their vacations. In response to Ersoy, Salman said that next four days, he is going to explore Istanbul while Katrina will be moving to Antalya and Cappadocia for the film’s shoot.
“We are filming a song there. Like how we shot for ‘Swag Se Swagat’, the main song will be filmed here. I hope it is as successful as the last one. It will come at the end of the film,” Salman revealed.
Earlier, a source close to the team of Tiger 3 informed that the film is going to be action-packed. Katrina and Salman, along with the other cast and crew, will shoot for the film in Turkey and then move to Austria. “Aditya Chopra and Maneesh Sharma didn’t want to compromise on the scale of the film despite the pandemic and they have planned Tiger 3 to be a visually spectacular theatrical experience. Thus, this schedule will add a lot to the film’s visual extravaganza and some never seen before action sequences will be filmed,” the source revealed.
Tiger 3 also stars Emraan Hashmi, who is playing the villain. Tiger 3 is the third film in the action-drama franchise. The first film of the franchise titled Ek Tha Tiger (2012) was helmed by Kabir Khan, while the second film Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) was directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. The third installment is being directed by Maneesh Sharma.
