MUMBAI—Salman Khan shot a death-defying action sequence battling a pack of bloodthirsty wolves for “Tiger Zinda Hai,” in which he is seen as a RAW agent sent to rescue 21 Indian nurses taken hostage in Iraq.
Yash Raj Films’ action entertainer promises to be the biggest film of the year. Khan has taken the action benchmark several notches higher as the superstar has pulled off his most dangerous action sequence to date with a pack of wild wolves! Filmed in the freezing, visually stunning locales of Austrian mountains, this difficult fight scene promises to be a super treat for the superstar’s fans.
The sequence has been shot with the international action crew taking all cautionary measures to ensure the wolves are well taken care of and that security measures were on point. The crew spent months planning this with specialized wolf trainers. Led by visionary action choreographer Tom Struthers, they have pulled off this sequence that put Khan at serious risk.
Director Ali Abbas Zafar said, “Tiger’s encounter with a pack of wolves makes one of the most important chapters in the film. The idea was to do something never seen before on the Indian screen and give Tiger’s character an edge. This is a dramatic chase and action sequence that Tiger has done with a pack of real wolves.”
Well, well. After all this, hope we do not see a disclaimer stating that no animals were harmed during the shooting of the film because the animals were digitally generated!
The action entertainer releases Dec. 22 worldwide. Saudi-based actor Sajjad plays the main villain in the film. Its audio jukebox with six songs composed by Vishal-Shekhar is just out.
