Oops! Did we just break one of the suspenses from Tiger Zinda Hai? So unlike Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger Hai which had Salman Khan (a Raw Agent from India) falling in love with Katrina Kaif(an ISI agent from Pakistan) against all odds, Tiger Zinda Hai directed by Ali Abbas Zafar is going to come up with quite an interesting shocker. I mean, not that the sequel will deviate away from the core plot of the film. But if the industry buzz is anything to go by then Katrina’s character in Tiger Zinda Hai is suspected to be more on the negative side. Now does that mean she’ll split with Salman or play dirty games to trap him? Is for you to guess. But the fact that Katrina’s expected to be the baddie in this upcoming sequel has got us so damn excited…
This reminds us how even a source in interaction with DNA had earlier revealed about Katrina’s role getting meatier with Tiger Zinda Hai as it was quoted, “While in Ek Tha Tiger Hai, Katrina was just seen as a lovely prop, in the action-drama Tiger Zinda Hai you will get to see the actress doing a lot of action for the first time. Katrina has never done hard-core, high-octane action before in any of her films, like hand-to-hand-combat or flying into the air, so she will have to undergo training for it.”
While the mere fact of Tiger Zinda Hai marking the return of Bollywood’s favourite couple Salman and Katrina after 4 years has got us so damn excited. Director Ali Abbas Zafar further assures how he’s going to make the most out of this reunion as he had quoted saying “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 installment 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.”
Talking about the scenic locations for Tiger Zinda Hai, Ali also added, “We plan to shoot at several overseas locations. Usually, my films are set in India. I often start a story in London or Budapest and invariably end it in Haryana or Kolkata. This time, the story will call for fancy locations; there will be a valid reason why the guys are in a new country. Finally, my passport will come to some good use.
Not to forget, Katrina too during a recent media interaction had clarified how Tiger Zinda Hai is going to continue from exactly where it left in the prequel as she said, “The film is set in today’s times. It’s set in one time period. There’s no aage-peeche at all. It’s a sequel in the correct sense of the term. It begins exactly from where we left off in Ek Tha Tiger.”
All said and done, are you excited to see Katrina as the baddie in Tiger Zinda Hai? Tell us in the comments below and keep watching this space for more updates on this hot story.
