Bollywood hearthrobs Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will scorch the screen together after a gap of three years, in a romantic thriller under the Yash Raj Films banner, a first for the ‘Dabanng’ superstar.
“I am doing Kabir’s film…Katrina is there in the film. But it is not a superhero film. I can’t say what the film is about. I am honoured to work with Yashji who has worked closely with my father in the past,” said Salman.
“It is a very ambitious project and will be a challenge for all of us, but that’s exactly what makes it such a big draw,” he said.
The film, produced by Aditya Chopra is written and directed by Kabir Khan of ‘New York’ fame. Titled ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, it is Salman’s first film under the YRF banner and will go on floors in early July and release in mid-2012. The music will be scored by Pritam.
Yash Chopra described the project as a ‘happy moment’ for him. “Everyone knows my association with Salim saab, having worked together on ‘Deewaar’, ‘Trishul’ and ‘Kaala Patthar’. It is a very happy moment for me and YRF to have his son Salman with us for the first time. Over the years, Salman has become a very matured and talented actor and both he and the beautiful Katrina have a tremendous connect with their audiences.”
