Salman Khan to Begin Filming AR Murugadoss’ “Sikandar” with Action-Packed Mumbai Schedule Starting June 20: Report

Eid 2024 may have missed a Salman Khan release, but the superstar has revealed a grand project called Sikandar to compensate for it. This action-packed extravaganza marks Khan’s first collaboration with director AR Murugadoss, and filming is scheduled to kick off in June 2024. Murugadoss is currently juggling multiple projects, including an action film featuring Tamil star Sivakarthikeyan (tentatively titled SK23). To ensure a seamless transition to Sikandar, he intends to wrap up a significant portion of SK23 before fully engaging in Khan’s film.
“Murugadoss aims to complete as much of SK23 as possible before Sikandar goes on floors,” revealed an insider, according to a report in Mid-day. The plan involves commencing the initial schedule of Sikandar in May, followed by a return to Sivakarthikeyan’s film in June. From July onwards, Murugadoss will dedicate his full attention to Sikandar. Despite the director’s packed schedule, the team is tirelessly working towards a target Eid 2025 release, with Murugadoss assembling a dedicated team to expedite the completion of SK23 and avoid any delays. According to another report in the same publication, pre-production began in May, paving the way for a June shoot.
The first schedule will take place in Mumbai, with location scouting currently underway to finalize filming spots. Additionally, Salman Khan will participate in a photoshoot towards the end of May, followed by the commencement of principal photography after June 20. Action sequences are a top priority for Murugadoss, and the action directors are busy choreographing these set pieces. Salman Khan has already started his preparations, insisting on performing the action sequences himself and modifying his workout regimen to achieve a chiseled physique. Table reads with Khan and leading lady Rashmika Mandanna are expected to commence in early June. A significant portion of the film will be shot in Mumbai and Hyderabad before the team embarks on an international schedule.
To ensure Salman Khan’s safety, given past threats, filming locations will be disclosed on a need-to-know basis. Sikandar marks Murugadoss’s highly anticipated return to Hindi cinema after an eight-year hiatus following Akira (2016). This project also reunites Khan with producer Sajid Nadiadwala, the duo behind blockbuster hits like Kick, Judwaa, and Mujhse Shaadi Karogi.
