The 51-year-old actor on Sunday commenced the shooting for a six-day-long schedule here.
"Salman will be shooting for a six-day-long schedule for the film over the Christmas week. A pivotal action sequence is being shot in Mumbai, where Salman will be performing stylized action," the film's spokesperson said in a statement.
The actor will be shooting at the Film City from December 24 to December 30.
The previous two installments had Saif Ali Khan as the main lead but he has now been replaced by Salman. Remo D'Souza has taken over the project from director duo Abbas-Mustan.
