He is excited to try a new look for the film, for which he is undergoing rigorous training in the gym and keeping a strict check on his diet. He will bulk up for the role. The role requires him to be in the best possible shape. The transformation will follow similar lines as he did for his film Sultan.”
What is Salman Khan’s upcoming film about?
The Hindustan Times reported that the film is centered around the Maldives coup attempt in 1988. Portraying a significant historical event, the plot revolves around the Indian Army's successful intervention to thwart a coup led by Maldivian businessman Abdullah Luthufi that was aimed at overthrowing the government. Salman Khan plays a man who had a pivotal role in leading the mission.
As of now, Salman is eagerly looking forward to the release of his film with Katrina Kaif, Tiger 3. The action thriller, directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra's Yash Raj Films, has Emraan Hashmi as the antagonist.
Tiger 3, part of the YRF's Spy Universe, is the third installment in the Tiger series after Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai.
