New Delhi:

Tiger Zinda Hai, the sequel of 2012 superhit Ek Tha Tiger starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif promises to be a high-voltage adrenaline shot.  

TZH is presented by Yash Raj Films and according to the sources, the espionage thriller is set to global standards in its scale, vision, and production values. 

One of the major highlights is Katrina Kaif, playing agent Zoya, who has tackled her transformation into a super spy with full commitment. 

Zoya is an elite intelligence agent who is an expert in hand-to-hand combat and capable of adapting to a different set of mannerisms. 

In the words of director Ali Abbas Zafar, “In this film, Zoya plays a super spy. It was essential to understand how such agents think and operate. So, we got Katrina to train with real agents, used their expertise and experience.”

“For instance, as intelligence agents, you have to train a certain way to keep your mental balance in direst situations. Say you face someone who has a gun and you don’t. How do you still stay neutral and calm, and figure out the best possible way to counter and survive in such a situation. Katrina has really pushed herself for the part. She has also gone the extra mile to train in important nuances like aggressive hand-to-hand combat. The action that Katrina has done looks very real onscreen, despite being mounted on a grand scale,” he adds.

Making sure that she gets into the skin of a super spy, Katrina trained in adapting to nuances of body language, mannerisms, and other minute details. 

Tiger Zinda Hai releases on December 22.
