Bollywood actor Salman Khan returned to Abu Dhabi last week to film his latest action movie Race 3, which will be shot across six different locations in the capital over a 35-day duration.

The locations include Emirates Palace, Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi, St. Regis Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), Emirates Steel and Liwa Desert.

Race 3, directed by Remo D’Souza, is Khan’s third film in the popular action franchise, which stars Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem.

It comes just six months after the actor wrapped up filming for his movie Tiger Zinda Hai.

It will also see producers get a 30 percent refund on production spend from the Abu Dhabi Film Commission.

In addition, the film will include Hollywood stunt director Tom Struthers, who will work alongside Indian action director Anl Arasu and the UAE Armed Forces, which will provide a Blackhawk helicopter, Oshkosh trucks, Nimr military vehicles, and Humvees.

Abu Dhabi has hosted a number of Hollywood films including Furious 7, The Bourne Legacy and Star Wars: The Force Awakens as well as Bollywood films Dishoom, Baby and Bang Bang.
