Director Kabir Khan is busy shooting across in Istanbul for Yash Raj Films' (YRF) 'Ek Tha Tiger', starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, and it seems to be one cool schedule.

"Tiger has landed in Istanbul... Schedule 2 begins. Stunning Istanbul... perfect backdrop for the Tiger in action," Kabir, who had earlier directed 'Kabul Express' and 'New York', posted on his Twitter page.

YRF had released a one-of-its-kind digital poster for the movie in August 2011. The poster pans into a wide view of a populated city, and gradually depicts a silhouette of a well-built man with a scarf flying from his neck. But Kabir clarified that the city depicted in the poster is not Istanbul.

"That's another magical city which I will reveal only in the film," he tweeted. "Tigress bhi yahin hai (The tigress is also here)" - most likely a reference to Katrina.

The film, to be released worldwide June 1, 2012, is based on a story by Aditya Chopra while the screenplay and dialogues are by Kabir and Neelesh Misra.

The first schedule took place in Dublin after Salman recovered post his surgery to treat a nerve condition that has been causing pain in his cheeks and jaw.
