According to sources close to the development, Salman has already started prep work for Vishnuvardhan’s next, and aims to take the film on floors by mid-November. “Salman plays a paramilitary officer in Vishnuvardhan’s next film and has already gotten into the prep mode for the film.

The yet-untitled Vishnuvardhan film will be shot in multiple schedules and is expected to release on Christmas 2024 weekend.
“The first schedule will be around a month-long from mid-November to mid-December, following which Salman would take his year-end break. He returns to the sets by January 10 for another 30 to 45-day schedule before calling it a break on the film,” the source added. From March/April 2024, Salman will commence working on India’s biggest action film, Tiger vs Pathaan, a proper two-hero film that pairs him with Shah Rukh Khan. “The filming for Tiger vs Pathaan begins in Summer with combination dates of both SRK and Salman,” the source informed, quick to add that the duo will be shooting till the end of May on this epic action thriller.
According to the source, Salman is expected to resume work on the final schedule of Vishnuvardhan’s next in June and wrap up the film by July end. “This is the tentative schedule that has been chalked out for Salman. If there is a delay in the shoot of Tiger vs Pathaan from the already planned date, SK will complete Karan’s film by Summer and only then dive into Tiger vs Pathaan. At the moment, YRF is looking to kick off Tiger vs Pathaan from the end of March/early April and the shoot for Vishnuvardhan’s film has been planned keeping all aspects in mind,” the source insisted.
