After months of media speculation, it’s official now! Salman Khan & Katrina Kaif are teaming up for Yash Raj Films’ Ek Tha Tiger which is directed by Kabir Khan and produced by Aditya Chopra.
Yash Chopra, speaking about the project, said it was a very happy moment for him. “Everyone knows my association with Salim (Khan) 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. Combined with Kabir’s edgy directorial skills, we can all look forward to a thrilling film. I really loved the script which is based on a story written by Adi and I am sure that the whole team will do an excellent job on this project.”
Salman Khan was also honoured to be working with YRF for the first time.
The romantic-thriller starts shooting early July and is slated for a mid-2012 release.
