Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai‘s director Ali Abbas Zafar says the film’s new track Dil Diyan Gallan, is a love ballad shot in a way reminiscent of the way classic Yash Chopra songs.
Backed by the Yash Raj Films banner, Tiger Zinda Hai features Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. For the song Dil Diyan Gallan, the actors shot in Austria.
“I have always wanted to pay a tribute to the classic Yash Chopra romantic songs which I have grown up loving. And I’m thrilled that I finally got that song in Dil Diyan Gallan, an out-and-out romantic ballad on the lines of classic, beautiful love songs that the banner is remembered for by generations,” Zafar said in a statement.
“The song follows the same form/signature of a classic Yash Chopra song – aesthetic, inspired by the innocence of old school romances and at the same time, focuses on mature, deeply felt love,” he added.
Vishal-Shekhar have composed the Irshad Kamil-penned song, which is sung by Atif Aslam.
Vaibhavi Merchant has choreographed Salman-Katrina’s romance for the song, which has a bit of waltz.
The director added that the upcoming Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer is an attempt in the same direction where the story is based on a real event.
“But it is a completely fictional film with the characters of Tiger and Zoya who take you into the journey of these nurses and a war-torn country Iraq,” he said.
“Indian cinema is moving towards more realism now and, as filmmakers, we are getting more inspired by what is happening around us and telling those stories on big screen,” Zafar recently said in a statement.
Tiger Zinda Hai is the sequel to Ek Tha Tiger and is slated to release on December 22.
