If materialized, this will mark Hashmi's maiden collaboration with YRF.

Here's more on this.

Tiger 3 will have Salman Khan reprise his role of R&AW [Research & Analysis Wing] agent Avinash Singh Rathore aka "Tiger," while Katrina Kaif will be seen playing the female lead.

It was also recently reported that the shooting for the movie will start in March 2021 in Dubai, with Khan already having given time to director Maneesh Sharma.

Franchise: More about the 'Tiger' franchise

If the buzz around the film is to be believed, Tiger 3 will take off from where Shah Rukh Khan-led upcoming action movie Pathan ends.

Reportedly, Khan also has a cameo in the climax of SRK's movie.

Quote: Three of my films are ready for release, says Khan

Khan had recently said, "There are three films of mine that are ready for release, and the problem with single screen theaters is that there are very few films being released over there."

"Nowadays, there is a kabristan (graveyard) kind of feel to single screen theaters (sic)," he added.

To note, Khan also has Radhe, Antim, and Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali in the pipeline.
