The last film that Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif did together was Ek Tha Tiger and amid rumours of the two coming back together on screen, what better film that the sequel to this 2012 spy thriller?
On 15 August, Ek Tha Tiger completed four years, and director Kabir Khan tweeted this:
Thank you for all the love and making #4YearsOfBlockbusterETT trend... Now wait for the sequel 😊

This may just have confirmed any rumours about the sequel. Reportedly, the sequel will be titled Tiger Zinda Hai, and it won't be directed by Kabir Khan but Ali Abbas Zafar.
According to this DNA report, Katrina was considered to be cast opposite Salman in several of his upcoming films, including Raj Kumar Santoshi's next and even Tarun Mansukhani's film, which will be produced under Salman Khan's banner.
However, Tiger Zinda Hai might be the first of the lot. Ali Abbas Zafar is said to have recommended Katrina's name while speaking to YRF about casting. It is only fitting, given the two were in Ek Tha Tiger as well.
Meanwhile, Salman Khan is currently in Ladakh shooting for Kabir Khan's Tubelight, while Katrina is in the US along with the Dream Tour. Her next film Baar Baar Dekho will release in September.
