New Delhi, Nov 7: The wait is over. Much awaited Tiger Zinda Hai trailer is out and it promises to be a blockbuster.
The trailer was released online on Tuesday. Salman returns as Tiger, a spy on a mission to save nurses being held hostage in Iraq by an evil dictator. Shot in exotic locations, and boasting Hollywood-standard action, the trailer highlights the attention to detail that has gone into making the film.
Salman and his co-star from the first film (2012’s Ek Tha Tiger), Katrina Kaif, return on a joint mission to evacuate the hostages. There are shades of the recent Akshay Kumar film Airlift – which featured a similar plot and was set in the Middle East – and there is also some of the globe-trotting that we see in the Jason Bourne movies. In one sequence we also see Salman skateboarding in the mountains – like Vin Diesel in the xXx movies.
The film has been shot in five different countries. “To meet the scale of the film, we had to travel to four different countries for different reasons. Certain landscapes needed to become a part of the film, so we had to go to Austria to get the snow-covered mountains. We also had to go to Morocco to feature crucial fight sequences of horseback riding. The country’s landscape and topography bring a certain texture to these sequences,” Tiger Zinda Hai director Ali Abbas Zafar said in a statement.
The film, which has Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif coming back together onscreen after five years, will hit the theaters on December 22.
