Third film in Salman Khan’s Tiger franchise gets a story, confirms director Ali Abbas Zafar
Filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar has confirmed that he has already found the story for the third instalment of the Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif-starrer Tiger franchise and has also discussed the idea with the actor as well as producer Aditya Chopra.
“It has always been important for me to find the story first. So I am extremely happy and kicked with the story I’ve found for Tiger. It’ll take the instalment forward and will be synonymous with what the franchise has been doing,” Ali said.
The first instalment of the franchise, Ek Tha Tiger was helmed by Kabir Khan while the second, Tiger Zinda Hai, was directed by Ali. Both the films featured superstar Salman Khan alongside Katrina Kaif.
The director says he is yet to put pen to paper and will only start working on the project once his upcoming Bharat is “out of his system.” “I will wait for Bharat to release first. But I’ve discussed the idea with Salman and Aditya Chopra both. I think there is a great film there in the story.”
Bharat, a remake of the 2014 Korean drama Ode to my Father is scheduled to release on June 5.
