Superstar Salman Khan has begun shooting for his upcoming film, "Antim- The Final Truth", in which he reportedly plays a Sikh cop.

Last week, Khan's brother-in-law and actor Aayush Sharma, who also stars in the film, took to Instagram to share the "Dabangg" star's first look video from the movie.

In the clip, Khan is sporting a turban and walking in slow motion, in what appears to be a vegetable market.

"'Antim' begins. Bhai's 'Antim' first look," the "Loveyatri" actor captioned the video.

Now, according to a report by Koimoi, the makers had initially roped in “Balika Vadhu” actor Avika Gor in the film. However, she has now been replaced by Khan’s ‘Dabangg 3” co-star Saiee Manjrekar. The news was clarified by Saiee’s father and filmmaker Mahesh.
