From Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan to Akshay Kumar; Bollywood now finds Dubai to be its next Switzerland.

So if the Box Office reigning star Salman Khan lands here to shoot for his next we shouldn't be surprised.


There is no secret to the fact that Dubai is a favorite destination for Salman Khan, who earlier told Emirates 24|7, “If I wasn’t living in Mumbai for a living, then this is where I would move.”

Besides being a favoured holiday destination, Dubai is also now one of the most sought after shooting ground for the Bollywood biggies.

During the shoot of his 'Dabangg' series Salman was seen romancing a chiffon-clad Sonakshi Sinha on various locations in the emirates.

Now sources confirmed to us that Salman Khan’s next, 'Mental', whose shooting was postponed from January to February this year, will finally kick-off in Dubai over the weekend.

'Mental', has been in the news for various reasons, including shooting delays and casting troubles.

He is likely to start his shoot with a song that features south actor Daisy. But our source was not willing to divulge any details about the exact location and about the actress.

A few action sequences have also been planned to be shot at one of Dubai’s malls.

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.

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.
