This is the second schedule of the film and director Kabir Khan himself confirmed the shoot in Istanbul.
“Tiger has landed in Istanbul... Schedule 2 begins :-)” Kabir Khan wrote and then posted a picture of the city, adding “Stunning Istanbul... Perfect backdrop for the Tiger in action...”
Those who have seen the digital poster of Ek Tha Tiger have been guessing that the city shown in the first look was probably Istanbul. But Kabir Khan denies it.
