Speaking at the Kirori Mal College Alumni meet, Kabir said, "The
series was started by me, and Ali is taking that forward. I feel
very happy for him. He was my assistant and my close friend
"As Yash Raj Films has the rights of the series, so Ali will be
directing the second instalment. He will go with his vision of
'Tiger', though the characters and the basic set-up will be the
same. The world which was created by me will be the same, but the
interpretation will be different," he added.
Asked if he has given any personal inputs for the sequel, Kabir
Khan said: "No, I haven't. Whatever the characters were in the
first part, those will be carried forward, but the plot is
different and is created by Ali only."
The shooting of Tiger Zinda Hai has started in Morocco. It is
slated to release on December 22.
Meanwhile, Khan has recently finished shooting his forthcoming
"We've completed the shoot before schedule. Now the
post-production is going on. Still there is a lot of time to
release the film, so I have some ideas."
"I am thinking of making some mini-series for Netflix and Amazon... There are some ideas, which I am trying to develop. As soon as Tubelight releases, I will be able to make an announcement about my next project."
