Since a few days now, the Federation of Western India Cine employees are on strike as their demands on fixed working hours, getting payments on time, safety and hygiene standards etc are not being fulfilled by the producers. Due to the strike, many films and TV show shoots have got affected
The sequel of Ek Tha Tiger demands more high-octane stunts which are mainly done by the superstar. According to sources, apparently during the strike, the stuntmen backed out from doing any work. They were also said to have booked the tickets back to Mumbai to support the strike. Fearing losing out time from Salman's packed schedule and the release date that has already been given out in public, the makers apparently requested the stuntmen to continue working and after many discussions, they apparently agreed to continue the shoot.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Aditya Chopra, the film is set to hit the screens on December 22.
