Zafar shared a moment from the sets of the film today as an Instagram story. It’s a circus set where the most significant aspect is the way a sports bike is hanging. Looks like we can expect some stunts in the film.
The filmmaker spoke about the sets in an interview with BollywoodLife. “The idea is to create an Indian-Russian circus like Raj Kapoor’s Mera Naam Joker. Performers from all over the world are flying down for the circus tricks will be a mix of trapeze hoops and rope stunts. This is Salman and Disha’s introduction in the movie. He plays a daredevil stunt motorcyclist while she’s a trapeze artist,” he said.
But Chopra won’t be joining in right now. Her scenes will roll next month. Zafar also revealed that she will start her shoot next month with a Holi song with Khan. He also shared that her character will have different avatars as the film will cover a timeframe from the 1960s to the current era.
