Five years after Ek Tha Tiger, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif have joined hands for the sequel, titled Tiger Zinda Hai. Director Ali Abbas Zafar confirmed that the film is currently being scripted. The film is expected to go on floors by March 2017.
The Sultan director has admitted that the film will be a challenging one. In a recent interaction with a leading daily, he said:
"I am writing spontaneously, going with my instinct. I chose to do the film because of the pressure of it. Directing Katrina (Kaif) and Salman (Khan) in an instalment of a successful franchise is not easy. But, I am focusing on telling a more relevant story for today's political climate. The characters are from the first part, but the story will be brand new".
Zafar said that he hopes to make an interesting thriller. He said:
"We hope to make an entertaining espionage thriller. It will be good to see Katrina and Salman back together after five years. They are both smashing to look at and I hope I make them look even better. But, more than anything, I hope there is good content and that I am able to justify their stardom."
Tiger Zinda Hai is slated to hit the big screen during the Christmas 2017 weekend.
