If response to the latest theatrical promo of ‘Ek Tha Tiger‘ is any indication, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaifhave a huge winner up their sleeves. Other than the fact that the film promises to be a huge commercial winner, even from the content perspective one can sense that director Kabir Khan has brought in his sensibilities in place while ensuring that mass appeal of his two leads is well utilised.
“The moment newest theatrical promo of ‘Ek Tha Tiger‘ hit internet on Wednesday, one thing was quite clear that no one can stop this film from scoring well at the box office. The promo is the ‘baap’ of them all and even leaves behind the mighty successful teaser that was launched a few weeks back. While that one relied more on action, the new promo amalgamates every ‘masala’, be it romance, light hearted moments, intrigue, action and of course some stunning action”, comments an observer.
“Also, those who doubted Katrina’s chemistry with Salman post their break up would have to go quite now as they seem like an ideal couple on screen. How one wishes that this happens in real life as well”, quips a source attached to the film.
However those close to Kabir Khan confirm that his idea was to showcase the right essence of the film instead of focusing only on the Salman-Katrina angle. Since the film has an international conspiracy in the middle of this all, Kabir was sure that he wanted to plug in elements of intrigue as well (by bringing on unlikely candidates like Girish Karnad and Ranvir Shorey as well), hence ensuring that audience were not surprised with the final product on screen.
“The film isn’t ‘Dabangg‘ or ‘Bodyguard‘ which relied only on Salman power. There is a definite story to be told as well in ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and this is what you would see on screen”, the source confirms.
