Salman Khan is back as the Research and Analysis Wing agent Avinash Singh Rathore, codenamed Tiger, in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tiger Zinda Hai. One of the most anticipated big-ticket releases of the year, Tiger Zinda Hai is also the most expensive Yash Raj Films production of the year. The action thriller has been shot across the globe, including Austria, Greece, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates. Katrina Kaif reprises her role as the Pakistani spy Zoya from Ek Tha Tiger (2012).

The trailer, released on October 7, shows Tiger and Zoya teamed up against a common enemy: a terrorist organisation modelled on the Islamic State group that has kidnapped 25 Indian nurses in Iraq. RAW chief Shenoy (Girish Karnad) seeks the help of Tiger, who went rogue at the end of Ek Tha Tiger.

The trailer suggests plenty of action sequences and gun battles, and looks all set to compensate for Khan’s dud Tubelight earlier this year. Tiger Zinda Hai will be released on December 22.
