Maneesh Sharma on directing Salman Khan in Tiger 3, “Want to portray Tiger like I’ve seen him as a movie buff”

Maneesh Sharma got candid on his approach while directing Tiger 3, the third film in Yash Raj Films' Tiger franchise.

Yash Raj Films released ‘Tiger Ka Message’ video yesterday, which was like a prelude before the trailer of the highly anticipated Tiger 3. The video became viral and added onto the excitement for the film. This is the third film in the franchise, which stars Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, after Ek Tha Tiger (2012) and Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), which were directed by Kabir Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar respectively.

Maneesh Sharma has taken over the reigns for Tiger 3. Speaking about taking charge of the franchise and his aim, he said in a statement, “Over the last decade, Tiger had become perhaps the most iconic character in Bollywood. And getting the opportunity to take over the reins, to take his story forward came with an inexplicable excitement. I want to portray Tiger like I’ve seen him as a movie buff - larger than life, towering over you with his star power. I am excited that I get to add a deeper layer to his journey.”

In ‘Tiger Ka Message’, it was revealed that Salman aka Tiger is in peril after being framed as Enemy Number 1 of India. This video sets up the plot of the film that will show how Tiger goes on a life-threatening mission to hunt down his enemies in this vengeful action entertainer. Tiger wants to clear his name for his country, for his family and he won’t stop at nothing.

Sharing what all is at stake this time around, Sharma added, “This time, it’s not only about saving India, but about standing up for himself and his family. And for a man, for Tiger, that is the core of who you are - an area where each one (even Tiger!) feels vulnerable. And he will do it with a vengeance. India’s No 1 agent is India’s Enemy No 1 this time and I think people will have fun watching this edge of the seat action entertainer!”

Interestingly, Aditya Chopra, the head honcho of Yash Raj Films, ideated the video and came up with a dialogue that has gone viral. Added Sharma, “We are also delighted to see how the dialogue ‘Jab Tak Tiger Mara Nahin, Tab Tak Tiger Haara Nahin’ has gone viral! The video was conceptualised and written by Aditya Chopra and this dialogue is also a masterstroke from him! It’s a total paisa vasool big screen dialogue that will create hysteria when Salman says it on screen!”

Tiger 3 is a part of the YRF Spy Universe, which kicked off in 2012 with Ek Tha Tiger followed by Tiger Zinda Hai (2017), War (2019), and Pathaan (2023). It was Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai’s humongous success that cemented Aditya Chopra’s belief that he could introduce two more larger-than-life spy agents, Kabir aka Hrithik Roshan in War and Pathaan aka Shah Rukh Khan in the YRF Spy Universe. YRF intends to interconnect every spy film in the post-Pathaan world. Tiger 3 follows the events of Tiger Zinda Hai, War, and Pathaan.

Tiger 3 will be released during Diwali on November 10.
