From the cold weather of Austria to the hot climate of Liwa desert in Abu Dhabi, director Ali Abbas Zafar says the upcoming film “Tiger Zinda Hai” has been shot in extremely challenging weather conditions.
The Sultan director shared several video shots and pictures from behind the scene across the globe on social platforms, of the cast shooting in extreme conditions.
The action-thriller was shot at the Liwa desert for a crucial sequence in the film. The recorded temperature on the days they shot was at 50-degree Celsius, a statement said.
“‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ required a certain scale of a desert in the film and Liwa provided that. Temperatures were soaring and as we shot action sequences with a moving car here, the conditions were extremely challenging,” Zafar said.
Zafar added that the film’s unit stood by the vision and added that “the local crew at Abu Dhabi was also very supportive”.
Salman And Katrina have been working hard since before they started shooting at locations with award-winning stunt performer Tom Struthers. Salman Khan and Katrina have trained in various art forms like hand to hand combat and fencing for the action-packed film.
‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ is the second installment of the 2012’s Ek Tha Tiger series starring Salman Khan as Avinash Singh Rathore aka Tiger and Katrina Kaif as Zoya is scheduled to release on 22nd December 2017.
