Finally, the trailer of highly awaited Salman Khan’s film, “Tiger Zinda Hai” is out. Like every other time, Salman Khan is back in an entirely new avatar. No doubt Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif look super amazing in their new characters, as both play spies from different countries. Like Salman’s last few movies, “Tiger Zinda Hai” is also a festive release. This makes the chances of the film’s success favorable.


‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ stars Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif.

The trailer was launched yesterday which showed Salman doing action-packed sequences, some major amount of fighting and high spirited stunts.

What’s more interesting about it, is that the film is inspired by real-life incidents. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film might take Salman Khan’s career to an all new level.

At the trailer launch, director Ali Abbas spoke about his experience while working with Salman and Katrina. He explained, “Salman and I work well together. He is a superstar, and people perceive him in a certain way, but interestingly, we have that understanding. He has faith in me to show that action side of him well. He’s not a superhero, I like to show him as a human, that’s more real.”

Inspired by the horrific incidence of hostage crisis by ISIS in Iraq (2014), when 46 Indian nurses were made captives, the film is a mix of facts and fiction, built around the real event.

Ali, who earlier assisted Kabir Khan in “Ek Tha Tiger” confessed that it was a real challenge for him to make another chapter of the “Tiger” series.

He stated, “There is so much pressure bringing this franchise back, but to be honest, I first thought of the story. Both Salman and Katrina liked the story, and Aditya Chopra suggested we make it as a part of the Tiger franchise.”

He further mentioned that “Ek Tha Tiger” was basically a love story and “Tiger Zinda Hai” is completely different from that.

Talking further about Salman, Ali confessed, “The kind of abuses he’s hurled at me, I can’t share it. He hated me, he said I’ve pushed him a lot, more than Sultan, but he knows how we have tried to portray him, keeping his character in mind.”

We hope the film lives up to the audience’s expectations, knowing the fact that Salman had to return a major amount of money to the distributors after his last release “Tubelight” failed at the box-office.
