New Delhi, Oct 30: Director Ali Abbas Zafar upcoming action sequel 'Tiger Zinda Hai' starring A-listers like Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif has already left many fans amazed with its posters and snippets from shooting.
Salman is recently seen wielding an MG 42 - a massive machine gun - in one of the promotional photos and fans just cannot wait to see Salman's full-on action avatar on screen!
In a media confrontation, Ali stated: “When you feature a superstar like Salman Khan, who is known to pull his weight for a film’s action, you need to have weaponry that suits his stature and also fit in with the scale of Tiger Zinda Hai.”
”This fight sequence is part of a very crucial chapter in the film, and the weapon needed to match the scale and impact of this moment. For this scene, Salman fired around 5000 cartridges, over 3 consecutive days. It actually becomes one of the most iconic shots of the film. Because the gun was being used continuously, we needed to keep two such weapons ready for use. It generates extreme heat and we worked in very hot conditions. We had to flip the gun continuously, and keep both in perfect functioning condition,” he added.
Tiger Zinda Hai is slated to hit theatres on December 22.
