While the makers are yet to make the official announcement of Salman Khan's 'Ek Tha Tiger' sequel tentatively titled 'Tiger Zinda Hai' a lot of speculations have been doing rounds about Salman's role in this new movie.
Now as per a leading tabloid the 'Tubelight' actor will be playing an old man for the first time in his career. A DNA report quoted a source saying, "Ali Abbas has always given Salman something hatke to play. In Sultan, he played a down-and-out wrestler who struggles to get into shape and win. And now, Tiger Zinda Hai will have Salman in a never-seen-before avatar as well. YRF and Ali Abbas don’t want the plot to be revealed yet and are keeping it tightly under wraps, so that the film doesn’t lose its USP. The sequel takes forward the story of Tiger/Manish Chandra/ Avinash Singh Rathore (Salman Khan), who is India’s top spy and an officer of the Research & Analysis Wing (RAW). The film will start from Tiger’s present and then, take his journey forward. TZH will highlight many emotional highs and lows of Tiger’s life and will have equal doses of emotion and action. It will release on Eid in 2018.”
Further reports even suggest that the sequel is inspired from a Korean spy film. However a source from YRF refuted all these rumours.
