After making the hits like Gunday, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Sultan, Ali Abbas Zafar is now giving the biggest movie of the year, Tiger Zinda Hai.
He said that after the successful hit of ‘Sultan’ he got greedy and couldn’t make another movie with anyone other than Salman Khan.
So, he made the script with the sequel to hit franchise of Tiger (Ek Tha Tiger). Till then, he has sleepless nights.
How was the experience working with Salman Khan after Sultan?
It was the best experience. He always used to pull my legs. While working for the first time, I was trying to know him, but this time we were very comfortable. We both enjoyed working on the film together.
How much did the stardom of Salman and Katrina affect the process of the film?
As the time is passing by, superstars like Aamir, Salman or Shahrukh are getting careful about the characters that they chose or play as they want that to be bigger than them.
Whether it is Sultan, Dabangg or Bajrangi Bhaijaan, they all want that people call them with the name of their characters because of the impact. It is only possible when the role will be more significant than them.
Will the chemistry of Salman and Katrina overshadow the story?
When you make a small film based on any specific niche, it is only because, with your trailer, the audience may make up their minds whether they want to see the movie or not.
It is not easy to make the commercial film. He further added: I need to be true to my fans. People who like to watch both of them together will get excited and come to the theatres as well.
If the bullets weren’t fired, why you added guns in the movie?
If I just make the replication of what happened actually, it will come out as a documentary. But, I am making a picture.
My talent comes in when I make something that doesn’t exist.
Bharat will be your first film outside the banner of Yash Raj. Is Aditya Chopra fine with it?
Yes. I am still with YRF banner, so after finishing the movie, I will come back.
