Salman Khan and Kabir Khan are joining hands for another film, which is slated to release on Eid 2017. Salman Khan Films CEO Amar Butala said the film will be shot in Ladakh and will roll this July.

"We go on floors in Ladakh in July 2016 which is two months from now, post the release of Sultan. We are still working on the locations where the film will be shot, but all I can tell you is the fact that we start in Ladakh," Butala told Catch News.

Over the past few days, rumours were rife that Deepika Padukone had been brought on board for the project, but Butala rubbished the news saying nothing has been finalised yet. "We have not finalised any lead actress for the film as yet. We will announce it around July," he said, adding the film isn't a remake and is based on an original script.

This is Salman and Kabir's third film after "Ek Tha Tiger" and "Bajrangi Bhaijaan." Both went on to be widely praised by the masses. They also earned big bucks at the box office.

In other news, Salman is currently working on Ali Abbas Zafar's "Sultan." He has been working extra hours to wrap it up by May, post which he'll move to Kabir's film. "Salman will be giving more time to Sultan and finish the shoot in May because after this he has to start Kabir Khan's next as that releases on Eid next year," a source told the Asian Age.
