- Salman Khan flew to Riyadh on Wednesday
- He was pictured in a grey tee and jeans at the airport
- The tour will commence on Friday
Salman Khan caused a ripple of excitement across the Internet on Wednesday night by showing up at Mumbai's Kalina airport. Was he going to join Katrina Kaif's wedding festivities in Sawai Madhopur, tabloids asked. The short answer is - no. Salman flew to Saudi Arabia with a group of other celebrities where they will perform at the Da-Bangg Tour Reloaded concert scheduled over the weekend in Riyadh. Salman's sister Arpita has already said twice that the family have not received a wedding invite. Also not at Katrina's wedding is Salman's bodyguard Shera, who is believed to be in-charge of security at Six Senses, Fort Barwara where Katrina and Vicky Kaushal are getting married today. Shera, spotted in pictures at the airport with Salman Khan on Wednesday, is clearly not personally overseeing security arrangements; his firm, Tiger Security, has presumably been hired for the job.

Also flying to Riyadh for Salman's Da-Bangg Tour Reloaded were Shilpa Shetty, Saiee Manjrekar, who co-starred with Salman Khan in Dabangg 3, Sohail Khan, Arpita's husband Aayush Sharma, Sunil Grover and Maniesh Paul.
Shilpa Shetty paired her white tee with black jacket and jeans for her airport look.

Earlier this month, Salman Khan introduced Da-Bangg The Tour Reloaded as "the biggest event of the year" in an Instagram post. He wrote: "Da-Bangg The Tour Reloaded is coming to Riyadh with a bangg on 10th Dec 2021! Are you ready for the biggest event of the year?"
The tour will commence on Friday.
Actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who is a frequent co-star of Salman Khan, was also supposed to join the actor for the Da-Bangg tour but she was stopped from leaving the country earlier this week over a money laundering investigation involving alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar and others. The actress was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and is currently being questioned by the ED.
Coming back to Katrina Kaif, the actress married Vicky Kaushal in a private ceremony in Sawai Madhopur today. The couple flew to Jaipur for their wedding festivities last week.
