Tiger 3 release

In an interaction with media on the sidelines of an awards event in Dubai, Salman said, "Last night, I was shooting for Tiger (Tiger 3) and I have completed Tiger 3. Now you will get to see Tiger on Diwali, inshallah. It was a very hectic shoot, it was good though.”

Last week, Salman had informed fans that he was injured while working on the film. Sharing a picture of himself, he wrote on social media, "When you think you are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders, he says duniya ko chodo paanch kilo ka dumbbell utha ke dikhao (Forget all the problems of the world, try lifting a five kg dumbbell). Tiger Zakhmi Hai. #Tiger3."

In the picture, Salman was topless and had his back to the camera as he stood outdoors. A large Kinesiology Tape, marking an 'x', was visible on his left shoulder, in the middle of his back.

Salman reprises his role of Indian spy Tiger in Maneesh Sharma's Tiger 3 which will reunite him with Katrina Kaif. Katrina has starred in all films of the franchise. Emraan Hashmi makes his debut in the franchise with the third film. Shah Rukh Khan will also be seen in a cameo.
