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. Not that the sequel will deviate 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.
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.”
Director Ali Abbas Zafar further assures how he’s going to make the most out of this reunion as he was 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.”
