Ever since the time YRF announced its film Tiger Zinda Hai, it has been making news for all the right reasons. Firstly, the film happens to be a sequel of the 2012’s hit film Ek Tha Tiger. The film also sees superstar Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif reuniting after Ek Tha Tiger.
Recently, the film’s director Ali Abbas Zafar took to the social media and spoke about the extreme conditions (read ‘sub-zero freezing locations’) in which they will be now shooting the film. Ali Abbas Zafar tweeted stating, “Butterflies in stomach and lots of excitement, packing for sub-zero freezing locations ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’. It’s gonna be fun”. Speaking about the same, YRF’s spokesperson said, “It will be very cold to shoot here, but Tyrol is both an unexplored and a stunningly beautiful location. We loved the challenge of shooting here. Tom Struthers will bring in a lot of value with his expertise. That Salman and Katrina agreed to shoot in this freezing cold place, where temperatures fall below minus twenty degrees, just goes on to prove how committed they are to the film.”
Even though the shooting of Tiger Zinda Hai started in Morocco initially, Ali Abbas Zafar’s words were proof enough of the fact that the film’s makers are leaving no stone unturned to make Tiger Zinda Hai an experience to remember. The Salman Khan- Katrina Kaif starrer will begin filming a song and slick action with Hollywood Guru in Austria. The film will go on floors this March 15 in the freezing locales of Tyrol, Austria.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Yash Raj Films, Tiger Zinda Hai is slated for to release on December 22 this year. Besides Tiger Zinda Hai, Salman Khan will also be seen in Kabir Khan’s Indian historical war drama film Tubelight. On the other hand, Katrina Kaif will be next seen in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos alongside Ranbir Kapoor.
