Five years after they faced the cameras together for Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will take off for the picturesque city of Tyrol in Austria on March 15 to kick off the much-awaited second instalment and punch it out in sub-zero temperatures. The European country is the first of half-a-dozen international locations where the sleek spy thriller will be filmed.

The duo will start with a song sequence, followed by an action scene in the snow-capped mountains and the surrounding quaint hamlets. The two will be reprising their roles as Avinash Singh Rathore aka Tiger — an Indian RAW agent code-named as ‘Tiger’ and Zoya — a Pakistani ISI agent who falls in love with him.

Hollywood’s Tom Struthers, the award-winning action director of X Men: First Class and Christopher Nolan’s Inception, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises will be choreographing the stunts for the Ali Abbas Zafar directorial.

The actors will train under him and his crew.
