Salman Khan’s sequel to Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai is set for a Christmas release this year, and the teaser of the film will be unveiled in the coming months. Now, there’s talk within Yash Raj Films about a third part to the series. And why not, like their other franchise, Dhoom, this Salman-starrer also has the potential. Some would say it has more potential because while Dhoom relies on different actors each time, Tiger is Bhai, and his fans are eager to see this brand move forward.
Says a source, “Aditya Chopra and Salman have spoken about taking forward the Tiger franchise and end it with a third part. The main team remains the same. As of now, the plan is for Ali Abbas Zafar, who’s directing TZH, to helm the third part, too.” Tiger Zinda Hai begins where Ek Tha Tiger ended, and it will be the same with part three. “The ending of TZH is being designed in a way that it leaves room for another, most probably the final sequel. It will be a fresh story with newer characters and a bigger adventure, and will culminate the series.”
Salman and Katrina will reprise their roles in the third part as well. Currently, they are looking for a great script or an idea. Even though the plans to make the third part are in place, there’s time before it goes on the floors, as Salman doesn’t have dates before 2019.
