Katrina Kaif cemented her position in Bollywood with many films that she did opposite Salman Khan. The two have worked together in films like Ek Tha Tiger, Partner, Yuvvraaj, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya? among others. Now, she is teaming with Khan after a gap of five years for Tiger Zinda Hai.
When a leading daily asked Kaif how is it working with Salman, the actress replied, “I have known Salman for so many years now. After shooting with him for a long time, you miss his flamboyance and his fun side. He has a great sense of humour and flamboyance. He has a way of living life, where a great energy buzzes around him. It comes as a force and flood when you come back to the set with him. He has an amazing aura and warmth around him.”
Interestingly, Tiger Zinda Hai is directed by Katrina’s best friend Ali Abbas Zafar. When quizzed about reuniting with her best friend after working with him in Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Katrina states, “It’s a wonderful film set to be on, because Ali Abbas (Zafar; director) has been one of my dearest friends. We’ve been super close since New York (2009), before we worked on Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011) together. He is an integral part of my support system and my life. I am also really proud of him, because I see a huge growth in him as a director.”
Directed by Ali and produced by Yash Raj Films, Tiger Zinda Hai is slated to release on Christmas this year!
