The movie will be titled ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ keeping in sync with the script of the prequel and it is being assumed that the story will proceed from the climax of Ek Tha Tiger.
The film that is slated to release on Christmas 2017 will not be directed by the Ek Tha Tiger director Kabir Khan but Ali Abbas Zafar, who was also behind YRF’s Gunday. Zafar also tweeted his excitement for the big project.

The speculations had been on for quite some time now as to who will be the leading lady opposite Salman but then Katrina bagged the big project.
For Katrina, this is one of the biggest grab of the time considering the trail of flops the actress has been associated with including her latest Baar Baar Dekho. After this, Anurag Basu’ Jagga Jasoos with ex-beau Ranbir Kapoor is one long over due project in Katrina’s kitty. So, having a film with YRF and Salman,who’s every release sets the box office records ringing might just help her boat sail.
