The plot of ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ is different, created by Ali: Kabir Khan

Filmmaker Kabir Khan, the director of blockbusters like ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, expressed happiness over his close friend and director Ali Abbas Zafar taking the ‘Tiger’ series forward by directing Salman Khan’s 2017 Christmas release ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’.

Kabir, along with other top directors from YRF and stalwarts like Amitabh Bachchan, were speaking at the Kirori Mal College Alumni meet on Wednesday to raise funds for reconstructing the college’s auditorium

Talking about ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, Kabir said “The series was started by me, and Ali is taking that forward. I feel very happy for him. He was my assistant and my close friend too”

“As Yash Raj Films has the rights of the series, so Ali will be directing the second instalment. He will go with his vision of ‘Tiger’, though the characters and the basic set-up will be the same. The world which was created by me will be the same, but the interpretation will be different” Kabir siad.

The ‘Tubelight’ director also said the sequel completely belongs to Zafar

“Whatever the characters were in the first part, those will be carried forward, but the plot is different and is created by Ali only”

‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ releases in theatres on December 22. Both directors will be directing Salman this year. Kabir directs ‘Tubelight’, which releases first during Eid. Followed by Ali, who directs the megastar in ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ scheduled for the biggest weekend of the year – Christmas.



  • Without doubt Tiger Zinda Hai story better than ETT.
    Don’t underestimate Ali Abbas Zafar direction…!
    This Christmas TIGER roaring…!

  • Knows all …..

    Ali abbas Zafar yet to be way to remain to be matured as Kabir khan .his direction in SULTAN is average yet the film carried by Salman khans Stardom .And holiday period. Same was happened with ETT too .

    Though this film will earn moolah but Tubeless will be bigger hit of the year though Xmas has better holidays .

    my prediction
    Tubelight 410cr
    Tiger zinda hain 308cr

  • Kabir has grown as a mature director. I hope Tubelight matches or surpasses BB content. TZH is an out and out commercial movie but I hope Ali Abbas Zafar makes it better than ETT. If everything goes right 2017 will belong to Bhai.

  • I didn’t liked ETT so not much interested in TZH. But definetly waiting for tube light.. Not because SRK have cameo. After bajrangi bhaijan tube light is looking much bigger.

  • Most probably Tubelight & TZH will be the top2 grossers of the year. That’s mean Bhai will be the 1st Megastar of Indian Cinema to achieve the milestone of top2 grossers of the year for 5 different years…!
