Srinagar: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is currently in Jammu and Kashmir and the actor has started shooting for his upcoming film Race 3.
Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez, the stars of the upcoming actioner Race 3, created quite the fan-frenzy in Sonamarg when they were spotted arriving in off-road vehicles.
The actor is shooting for the final lap of the third instalment of action-thriller Race, which is produced by Ramesh Taurani.
The crew is currently shooting in the picturesque Sonamarg meadow in Ganderbal district in central Kashmir.
Sonamarg has been one of the favourite shooting locales for Bollywood filmmakers. Salman is shooting for the second time here, after Kabir Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Dressed in winter-wear, Khan was seen driving his vehicle to the set location where he met and greeted a few lucky fans apart from also posing for pictures.
The official said the crew is most likely to film a song sequence in Ladakh region of the State after wrapping up the shoot at Sonamarg.
This is Salman’s second visit to Sonamarg for shooting. He shot Kabir Khan-directed Bajrangi Bhaijaan at the meadow in 2015 and the movie went on to become a blockbuster.
Salman and Taurani also called on Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday. While the officials have been tight-lipped about the meeting, a picture of the meeting was shared by Taurani on his Twitter account.
“We thank the Chief Minister Madam Mehbooba Mufti for welcoming us in Kashmir for the Final Lap of Race3 with Salman Khan,” he wrote on Twitter.
