Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai is one of the most awaited movies of this year. The trailer for the film released recently and has received a lot of appreciation from the audience.
The film appears to be inspired by the rescue operation launched by the Indian government to bring back Indian nurses abducted by the terrorist organisation in 2014. However, this plot is similar to a Malayalam film ‘Take Off’, whose Hindi remake was in the making.
Now, as per recent reports, director Mahesh Narayan has shelved plans to remake the film because even Tiger Zinda Hai revolves around similar incidents that were grippingly portrayed in Take Off, which released earlier this year.
The talks for the Hindi remake of Take Off were in the last stages.
Malayalam thriller Take Off features Parvathy, Asif Ali, Kunchako Boban and Fahadh Faasil in lead roles. It is about Sameera, a nurse who wants to move to Iraq for a better salary. Her husband does not support her decision and they get divorced. She later marries Shahid, her colleague. After they move to Iraq, the couple faces many troubles.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Tiger Zinda Hai is slated to release on 22nd December 2017. Salman and Katrina will be seen onscreen together after 5 years in the movie.
Talking about the film, Katrina was quoted saying, “It is going to be great for Salman and me to work together in Tiger Zinda Hai. And I’m really happy we are coming back with this movie. The sequel is possibly the perfect film for both Salman and me to do together now. We were the most comfortable on the sets of ETT, as Tiger and Zoya. I think it worked well for us. It’s going to be interesting to be back on sets together.
