Bollywood superstar Salman Khan on Monday celebrated a decade of his spy action blockbuster film Ek Tha Tiger. The actor, who plays the titular character in the popular Yash Raj Films (YRF) film series, urged fans and followers to look forward to the upcoming third part.
“#10YearsOfEkThaTiger…And the journey continues. Get ready for #Tiger3 on Eid 2023. Celebrate #Tiger3 with #YRF50 only at a big screen near you on 21st April 2023. Releasing in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. #katrinakaif @kabirkhankk @aliabbaszafar #ManeeshSharma @yrf,” Salman wrote on Twitter alongside a video montage of the first two films.
Directed by Kabir Khan and also starring Katrina Kaif, Ek Tha Tiger was released on August 15, 2012. The success of the movie spawned a franchise under the production banner YRF, the first of which Tiger Zinda Hai arrived in cinema halls in 2017 and was helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar.
Tiger 3, the third part directed by Maneesh Sharma, is slated to be released in theatres on the occasion of Eid on April 21, 2023, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
“#10YearsOfEkThaTiger A decade of Tiger and Zoya’s journey! And it continues in #Tiger3 on Eid 2023,” Katrina shared on Instagram.
The upcoming actioner will see Salman and Katrina reprise their roles of spy agents Tiger and Zoya, respectively. The film will reportedly star Emraan Hashmi as the antagonist.
YRF also marked the 10 years of Ek Tha Tiger on its official Twitter handle. “10 Years ago, he roared his way into your hearts. And now he’s set to be back again, all guns blazing in #Tiger3 on Eid 2023. Celebrating #10YearsOfEkThaTiger,” the production house said in a post.
On the work front, the Sultan actor will also be seen in Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali. The actor will be seen alongside Pooja Hedge in the movie. It will also mark the Bollywood debut of Shehnaaz Gill. In 2023, Khan will be a part of No Entry and Kick 2.
