The first poster of Tiger Zinda Hai is out and it is all about Salman Khan and his gun! Not the entire Salman, though, as we get to see a sliver of his face as the rest of his facial features are hidden behind his automatic gun. And he is wounded. But that makes him more dangerous, because the poster says ‘No one hunts like a wounded tiger’. We do wonder which poor soul had the misfortune of trying to maim this Tiger and will not live long to reveal his tale.
A few days back director Ali Abbas Zafar had revealed on his Twitter timeline that he will be revealing something special about Tiger Zinda Hai on Diwali. And as promised, the first poster has come out as the perfect Diwali gift for all Salman Khan fans out there. Salman himself had tweeted the poster with the caption, “Diwali Gift…. pasand aaya? Ab Christmas pe milna… #tigerzindahai”. But Salman, we hope to meet the Tiger before Christmas; you also have to show us the teaser, songs and the trailer too! We are also thankful that the first poster has veered away from the usual fixation of showing Salman Khan’s back first (though the first look of the movie was all about that!).
When director Ali Abbas Zafar was asked to comment on his experience shooting with Salman and Katrina for TZH, he said, “Shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai was gruelling, challenging and a whole lot of fun. We’ve shot across pristine, relatively unseen locations in Austria, Morocco and shot on a huge lot in Abu Dhabi along with other spots. Right from the infrastructure, to the support that the local military has given us, shooting here was smooth and a great collaborative experience. Tiger and Zoya’s second outing is going to be larger than life, and the shoot lives up to that.”
Tiger Zinda Hai will release big this Christmas on December 22. Katrina Kaif will also reprise her role from the original 2012 blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger in the sequel.
