10 Unknown Facts About Salman & Tiger Zinda Hai

Tiger Zinda Hai  was not planned as a sequel to Ek Tha Tiger. Director Ali Abbas Zafar wrote it as a stand-alone political thriller. But changed his mind when producer Aditya Chopra persuaded  him.

Tiger Zinda Hai is based  on the true-life rescue of a group Malayali nurses from Iraqi  terrorists. Salman’s character, though,  is  completely fictitious.

A  highly acclaimed Malayali film Take Off was  made on the same theme. In that film there was  no hero to rescue the nurses.

Katrina Kaif is  a common link to both the parts of the Tiger series, in more ways than one. She is a close friend of Kabir Khan who  directed Ek Tha Tiger, and  Ali Abbas Zafar who has directed the second part. Katrina has done  films with both in the past.

Salman’s last film Tubelight had underperformed at the  boxoffice. Tiger Zinda Hai(TZH) is  expected to benefit from the postponement  of Sanjay Bhansali’s Padmavati, since there are  no other potential blockbusters on  release in December.

The Tiger sequel is expected to be Yash Raj’s second blockbuster in two years. The earlier superhit was Sultan. And guess what? That too starred Salman Khan.Apparently the banner is now exploring  the heft of hero-girl through the superstardom of the  other Khan(Salman). No announcements with Yash Raj’s blue-eyed Khan(ShahRukh) in the near future.

Apparently the  lady boss at Yash Raj, we mean Rani Mukherjee, has seen rushes  of Tiger and feels it’s a potential blockbuster.And Aditya Chopra trusts his wife’s gut feelings blindly.

Salman played a big hand in bringing Katrina  back into the Tiger sequel. The team, including  director Ali Abbas Zafar, has promised to reunite for a  third film in the series as soon  TZH becomes a  blockbuster.

Superstitious  about the failure of his last  film Tubelight,where his real-life brother Sohail played his brother,  Salman  has decided  to  not work with his brothers or any of his relatives in front of the camera.At least not inTZH

TZH is Yash Raj’s most expensive production to date.
