The shooting for the film will start in March 2017 and Yash Raj has announced December 2017 as the release date. It has been revealed that Salman Khan will reprise his role as Indian spy Tiger while Katrina Kaif will be playing the role of Pakistani spy Zoya once again.
Talking about the same, a source told a leading daily, ''The film, titled Tiger Zinda Hai, will take off from where Ek Tha Tiger left, and will trace the story of Tiger, a top spy. Ali is keen to add several thrilling elements to the film and make it an exciting watch for Salman fans. Salman Khan will play a spy and will be seen from the ages 17 to 70. The film will be high on action and will have Tiger and Zoya coming together to fight a common enemy. ''
Many people believe that Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif fell in love while working together while others say that it was Arpita Khan, who introduced the two.
Salman Khan and his ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif have worked together in movies like Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Partner, Yuvvraaj and Ek Tha Tiger.
More than their movies their fans were interested to know about their personal life. Some even thought that Salman and Katrina would tie the knot soon.
Unfortunately, just like Salman Khan's other affairs this relationship too came to an end. The reason of their break-up is still unknown.
Later, it was revealed that Katrina Kaif was dating Ranbir Kapoor, whom she had met on the sets of their first film together, Ajab Prem Ki Gazhab Kahani.
But even after their break-up Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif chose to remain friends. Not just that, Katrina was invited to every family function that was organised by Salman's family.
Katrina Kaif even said on a show that Salman Khan would always remain her friend. The rumours of their affair started once again when they worked together in the movie Ek Tha Tiger.
Salman Khan keeps praising his ex Katrina. When he was shooting for the movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan, he wrote on twitter, "KASHMIR bahut AMEER in natural beauty... Maashallah Maashallah......Maashallah Maashallah se yaad aya katrina kaif bhi Kashmir se hai."
According to reports, Katrina Kaif will be first undergoing rigorous training for the role. Tiger Zinda Hai is a very important film for Katrina as she has seen three back-to-back flops in Baar Baar Dekho, Fitoor and Phantom. And she needs a movie with a big star to revive her career.
Director Kabir Khan's 2012 action-adventure film Ek Tha Tiger broke all the records at the box office. It was the first time Salman Khan and Kabir Khan worked together. They both worked in Bajrangi Bhaijaan later, which was also a blockbuster.
Salman Khan and Kabir Khan are currently shooting for their upcoming film Tubelight in Manali.
