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

  • 2017 will be D biggest year For Salman Khan
    2 biggest Films Lined up with 2 biggest directors 2 biggest weekends

  • I’m damn sure Dutt biopic will not clash with TZH…..
    So if all goes well then @ D end of 2017 Salman Will have two 300 Cr movies & After That We Can Loudly SAY that SALMAN Khan is D biggest Superstar Ever

  • TZH will be Big

    SALMAN KHAN [ Megastar ] Ai Zafar [ Sultan Frame ] YRF [ Biggest Production Company in Bollywood ] Biggest weekend for BO [ Xmas ] Chartbuster Music [ probably From Vishal & Shekar ] Katrina K Breathtaking Locations Mindboggling Action Sequences First Action Movie From Salman since 2014 July
    What else V want……
    As a Die hard Salman fan I’m desperately waiting for TZH …. after KICK I really Missed Salman in mass entertainer …..
    Timing is Just Perfect….

  • when the time of release of tzh will come near the buzz will be h8gher than previous realese film ett
    last time occupancy was 90 to 95 % but this time it will be 100%
    no one can stop tiger
    come onn dutt biopic makers
    u know wat was happened to raees and kaabil
    mostly people will watch salman film even in multiplex and ss

  • 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…!

  • Now some Ranbir will bcm the Baap of some fanbases cz there is a rumor that Sanju biopic is clashing with TZH. Not at all surprised, cz their tinystars can’t date to take on Bhai, even some of them runs away in fear of Bhai movies. Ab toh unlogo ko bas Ranbir ka hi sahara hai…!!!

  • If TZH maneges to get solo release we might witness 40+cr opening day on non holiday and 250+cr 1st week collections. #Beyond imagination!!!

  • Will Raju dare to clash with TZH??? Especially when your Duniya ka sabse bada gigastar runs away in fear of a Bhai movie then ye Raju kis khet ki mooli hai?????

  • From last couple of weeks srkians are blabbering that Ranbir will finish Bhai. Abbey gangu teli walo, Your gangu teli runs away in fear Bhai but Ranbir is ready to take on Bhai…..Isn’t it a clear indication that Ranbir Kapur >>>>>>>>>> srk???


  • Ali has proven his mettle with MBKD, Gunday & Sultan. Sultan was critically acclaimed too.
    So, he will make another very good film in the Form of TZH.

  • But we are not interested in that crapfest. Only waiting for baahubali 2, 2.0, TOH, jolly llb 2 and anand rai’s next.

  • I wanna a clash betweent TZH nd Dutt biopic.. It gonna b intresting how Salman will survive.. Datz a test for him
