High-budget action entertainer in the works

In a high-budget action entertainer set to premiere during the 2025 Eid weekend, a source had earlier told Pinkvilla that Nadiadwala had enlisted the services of Murugadoss to direct Salman. For some time now, the superstar and the producer have been talking about the possibility of collaborating. According to an insider, Salman was the first name that sprung to mind when Nadiadwala and AR discussed the project. The superstar gave an immediate yes when the producer approached him about the film, and production will begin in 2024 on a worldwide action entertainer.

The source also told the entertainment portal that the most ambitious film by Nadiadwala, yet to be named, will be shot in Portugal and other European nations, with certain portions in India. The budget is a whopping Rs. 400 crore. All the necessary pieces fell into place earlier in the year during the meetings, so production could begin on the film without delay. He prioritised the Murugadoss project over all the others since it was the most exciting script he had received in the past year.

Ambitious schedule and collaboration

Starting in the summer of 2024 and continuing until the year's end at multiple global locations, the film will have a marathon schedule. The insider said that Salman and Nadiadwala are planning to elevate their collaboration to a new level, calling it their biggest yet.
