OMG! Abu Dhabi turned into Iraq for Tiger Zinda Hai!
The promo of Tiger Zinda Hai has created an uproar among the crowds. People are happy to see Salman Khan in an action-packed avatar.
In the prevue, we got to know the premise of the movie which is based on the rescue mission of 46 Indian nurses from Iraq. But, did you know the movie was not at all shot in Iraq but the Islamic country was created in the city of Abu Dhabi instead?
Speaking about it, the director of the movie Ali Abbas Zafar specified to a daily, “The sand dunes and vast stretches of desert proved to be advantageous in recreating certain textures. We have shot in temperatures as high as 50 degrees Celsius on certain days, [which also helped in enhancing the cinematic experience].”
Ali was all admirations for the government of UAE for providing the cast and crew with all essential amenities which was needed during the 40-day schedule of Tiger Zinda Hai. Zafar further revealed, “The army and air force provided us with tanks, choppers and trucks for key action sequences. The support that they offered became a primary reason for us to agree to shoot there.”
Tiger Zinda Hai also stars Katrina Kaif opposite Salman Khan. It is a sequel to the 2012 blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger which was then directed by Kabir Khan. Tiger Zinda Hai is scheduled to release on December 22, 2017.
