Salman Khan to take break from Tiger Zinda Hai shoot to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi!
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is currently in the United Arab Emirates for the final leg of his forthcoming Tiger Zinda Hai. While director Ali Abbas Zafar and the leading lady Katrina Kaif reached there much before, the Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor landed up a few ago after coming back home finishing action packed schedule in Morocco. There is a 40 days shoot left and a slight halt may fall in mid for Salman.
Actually, the Ganesh festival falls towards the end of the month, and it is no strange fact that Khan-dan celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi every year with an incredible zeal. The reason why Salman Khan’s family wants him to come back for a few hours, immerse the Elephant God, and fly back to Abu Dhabi and resume the shooting.
The Sultan actor recently said, “Our family has always believed in the power of Ganeshji and have been celebrating the festival for a long time. My mother (Salma Khan) is half Maharashtrian, half Rajput Dogra, and the Ganesh festival is one event when our entire family assembles to celebrate it in a big way. We always have Ganapati at our home for three days.”
So, Salman is more likely to return home to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi at a time when the actor must have finished his shooting portion by 95% and Ali will go for making few changes in the shooting schedule for 4-5 days in this case.
Salman Khan has already missed the rakhi with his beloved sisters for this UAE schedule, so does his loving sister Arpita Khan Sharma.

“Shooting for Tiger Zinda hai thank you #AbuDhabi government and all the fans for the incredible love and support .”

“Tiger Zinda Hai is going to be bigger than Ek Tha Tiger for sure. It begins from where we left off in part one. Tiger Zinda Hai has things that you have never seen before in Indian cinema. We are making this film on a huge scale, especially the action. The plot is also inspired by a real incident. It’s a really nice script. I cannot tell you what the true story is, as Adi (Aditya Chopra) will kill me!”, Salman Khan revealed.
