Salman Khan’s next, tentatively titled Mental, has been in the news for various reasons, including shooting delays and casting troubles. Now sources tell us that the film, whose shooting was postponed from January to February this year, will finally kick-off in Dubai later this month.
“Salman will be travelling to Dubai to attend the Mumbai Heroes’ Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) match on February 23. Immediately after that, he is likely to start off with Mental’s shoot with a song that features south actor Daisy (Shah),” says the insider. “A few action sequences have also been planned to be shot at one of Dubai’s malls,” he adds.
Thanks to Mental’s shoot, Salman’s stay in Dubai will be extended by a week. What’s also interesting is that the film is almost certain to miss the Eid deadline. “It will be the first time in the last four years that no Salman-starrer will release during Eid. In all likelihood, it will release in November now,” adds the insider.
When contacted, Sohail told us that he didn’t want to talk about the film right now. We prodded him about the shooting schedule, but he only said, “Let me start first.” Originally, Salman was to fly to the US from Dubai for a medical check-up but due to his court case, he will return to Mumbai soon after wrapping up the Mental shoot.
