Katrina prepped with real life intelligence agents for Tiger Zinda Hai

Yash Raj Films' forthcoming action entertainer Tiger Zinda Hai is a high-octane espionage thriller set to global standards in its scale, vision and production values. Keeping with the promise of a larger than life masala mass entertainer, Katrina Kaif has tackled her transformation into a super spy with complete commitment. In the film, Zoya is an elite intelligence agent, tackling hand-to-hand combats and adapting to a different set of mannerisms for her character.


Tiger Zinda Hai is a sequel to the record-breaking blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger. The sequel focuses on gritty, hardcore action and draws from a realistic form of treatment.


Director Ali Abbas Zafar elaborates, `In this film, Zoya plays a super spy. It was essential to understand how such agents think and operate. So, we got Katrina to train with real agents, used their expertise and experience.` `For instance, as intelligence agents, you have to train a certain way to keep your mental balance in direst situations. Say you face someone who has a gun and you don't. How do you still stay neutral and calm, and figure out the best possible way to counter and survive in such a situation. Katrina has really pushed herself for the part. She has also gone the extra mile to train in important nuances like aggressive hand-to-hand combat. The action that Katrina has done looks very real onscreen, despite being mounted on a grand scale,` he adds.


 Working with specialized professionals to crack her role, Katrina also trained in adapting to nuances of body language, mannerisms and other minute details. Dedication, hard work and a never before scale - YRF's Tiger Zinda Hai promises to deliver on edge of the seat action and thrills like never before when it releases on Dec 22 this year!
