Tiger Zinda Hai- the story about two spies- one Indian and the other Pakistani- is mostly about humanity, says the film's director Ali Abbas Zafar, who feels handling sensitive topics can be a "double-edged" sword these days.
The film is scheduled to release on December 22, 2017
"The film is a very human story... it is not political at all. The idea is that when there is a fight between right and wrong, what is at stake is humanity. And there's nothing bigger than humanity," Zafar revealed.
Tiger Zinda Hai is the sequel to the 2012 action-er Ek Tha Tiger, which was directed by Kabir Khan. The film featured superstar Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif as Indian and Pakistani agents, and the two stars are back on-screen after five years in the same roles.
Moreover, Ali describes superstar Salman Khan as a director's actor. "He has given me what I have required from him and he has worked really hard to make the film look a certain way," he added of the film, which is said to be laced by some stunning action sequences.
The film's visual appeal itself will be enhanced by the picturesque destinations in Austria, Greece, Morocco, Abu Dhabi and India, where it has been shot.
