Katrina to romance Salman Khan in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’
Well, a sequel to blockbuster ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ has been confirmed for 2018 Eid release and the casting of the lead actress was also decided. Katrina Kaif, who played Salman’s love interest in the prequel will star in the sequel titled, ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’.
The movie will be directed by Ali Abbas Zafar under the production house of Yash Raj Films. ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ replaces Kabir Khan with Ali Abbas Khan of ‘Sultan’ fame. Director Ali Abbas Zafar, who shares a great rapport with the actress, had expressed his desire to work with the actress. After a gap of four years, Katrina will again see sharing screen with Salman.
The sequel will start from where the first part ended. Not only Ali but Katrina is also eager to work with him and reunite with Salman once again on screen. BollywoodLife.com quoted a source saying, “Ali (Abbas Zafar) and Katrina are really good friends and they get along very well. Katrina wanted to work with him again since a while now. So Tiger Zinda Hai is the perfect opportunity for them to collaborate with each other. In fact, there are high chances that Katrina will sign on the dotted line after coming back (Katrina is currently in USA for the Dream Team Tour).”
Ali directed Katrina in ‘Meri Brother Ki Dulhan’ and their friendship and professional relationship dates long back.
The ‘Sultan’ director once revealed that he and Kat connects really well. “Yes I would definitely love to do a film with Katrina without a doubt not because she is my friend because I just feel that at least when I made a film with her, she and I kind of connected at a different level and that connection went into the audience. Lot of people liked Katrina in Mere Brother ki Dulhan,” he said.
If all goes well, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif might ablaze silver screen again.
