Salman Khan’s cinematic odyssey: A diverse lineup of projects unveiled, including Vishnuvardhan’s thriller, ‘Tiger vs Pathaan,’ and ‘Prem Ki Shaadi’

Amidst a slew of commitments and speculative whispers, Bollywood’s beloved Salman Khan remains in high demand as he juggles numerous potential projects. While commitments to ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’ and ‘Tiger 3’ were inked prior to the pandemic’s onset, the industry has been buzzing with anticipation regarding Salman’s post-“Tiger 3” ventures. Set for a Diwali release, the third installment of the “Tiger” franchise fuels curiosity about the superstar’s forthcoming cinematic endeavors.

In an intriguing twist, Salman Khan has sealed a collaboration with renowned director Vishnuvardhan for an upcoming action-packed thriller. Adding to the excitement, Karan Johar has come on board as the producer of this venture, signaling a fusion of two industry powerhouses.


Pinkvilla sources closely connected to this development suggests that Salman Khan is already immersed in preparations for Vishnuvardhan’s project. Portraying the role of a paramilitary officer, the actor is undertaking a dedicated physical transformation, in sync with the role’s demands.

The film, which is yet to receive a title, is poised to undergo filming across multiple schedules. As the project gains momentum, the shooting timeline is aimed to commence in mid-November, with an eye on a grand release during the Christmas weekend of 2024. Given this timeline, Salman Khan is anticipated to invest his efforts in wrapping up the film by the end of July next year.

Evidently not one to rest on his laurels, Salman Khan’s future holds a lineup replete with diverse genres. Following the culmination of his association with Vishnuvardhan’s venture, the actor’s itinerary includes the much-anticipated “Tiger vs Pathaan,” a cinematic spectacle that pairs him alongside Shah Rukh Khan. Marking a significant milestone, this film is positioned as one of India’s most extravagant action films and is set to commence production in the early months of 2024.

Transitioning from adrenaline-fueled narratives to emotional family sagas, Salman Khan is set to delve into the softer facets of storytelling under the guidance of Sooraj Barjatya.

The project, tentatively titled “Prem Ki Shaadi,” is poised to capture the essence of classic family dramas, reminiscent of the remarkable collaborations between Khan and Barjatya over the years. An ambitious endeavor, the film is slated to initiate filming towards the end of 2024 or the start of 2025, as per insiders.

While Salman Khan remains in high demand, his selective approach is evident. The actor has been extended invitations from a spectrum of filmmakers across Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu industries.  Amidst the plethora of offers, three standout ventures have secured his commitment: Vishnuvardhan’s untitled thriller, the eagerly awaited “Tiger vs Pathaan,” and the emotionally rich “Prem Ki Shaadi.”
