Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are back together! Well, on-screen of course. The duo will be seen together in Yash Raj Films’ next production, Ek Tha Tiger. The romantic-thriller will be directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Aditya Chopra. The last time Salman shared screen space with Katrina was in the song Wallah Re Wallah in Tees Maar Khan.
A visibly delighted Yash Chopra said, “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.”
This is Salman’s first film with the YRF banner. He said, “In the past Adi and I have met a few times on various projects but somehow, when Kabir and he came to me with this particular story, we all just knew that this was the one. Above all this, I’m honoured to be working with Yashji, who has worked so closely with my Dad in the past.” It was rumoured that Salman was offered a role in Chak De! India but he turned it down because YRF refused to pay the price he demanded. The role later went to Yash Raj’s blue-eyed boy, Shah Rukh Khan.
