Director Kabir Khan, who experienced unprecedented success with Ek Tha Tiger and Salman Khan, now wants to work with the star again. Though he states that it won’t be a sequel to the 2012 blockbuster, the director admits that he is working on an idea that will be fit for Salman.

“I am working on a script and it will need a big star like Salman. I am working on a couple of ideas simultaneously,” says Kabir, adding, “I enjoy working with Salman and would love to cast him again, provided there is an appropriate story that suits him. He is a huge star, so you can’t just cast him in any film.”

The director, however, does reveal that his next, too, will be a love story with high voltage action. “I still think that Ek Tha Tiger was a love story, which had more stunts than proper action films,” he says.

Kabir feels that Ek Tha Tiger would make a fantastic franchise, but maintains that the open ending in the film was intentional and there are no plans of making a sequel. “I don’t like to give a story a full stop. That’s why I designed this particular ending for Ek Tha Tiger. More so, he (Tiger) is like a legend and thanks to such an ending, his myth continues. When people see the film, the end compels them to believe that a sequel is in the offing, but we honestly don’t have any plans,” he says.
