Katrina Kaif to play a negative role opposite Salman Khan in Tiger Zinda hai
Unlike Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger which had Salman Khan as 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 shock.
Relax it is not that the sequel will deviate away from its core plot. But if the sources are to be believed then Katrina’s character in Tiger Zinda Hai is suspected to be more on the negative side. Now does that mean she will be against Salman or play dirty games to trap him? But the fact that Katrina is expected to be the baddie in this upcoming sequel has made us so damn excited.
Reports mentioned this fact earlier as well
Reports had earlier also 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.”
Tiger Zinda Hai will also be marking the return of Bollywood’s most cherished couple Salman and Katrina after 4 long years has got their fans even more excited. Director Ali Abbas Zafar further assures how he is going to make the most out of this loving pair 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 and Salman 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 completely new.”
Talking about the scenic locations for Tiger Zinda Hai, Ali added, “We plan to shoot at several international 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 location for there will be a valid reason why the guys are in a new country.
Katrina too during a recent interview had clarified how Tiger Zinda Hai is going to continue from exactly where it was left in the prequel as she said, “The film is set in today’s times. It is set in one time period. There is no back and forth at all. It is a sequel in the correct sense of the term. It begins exactly from where we left off in Ek Tha Tiger.”
