When asked about this, Ali said, “Right now, I can’t say anything about anything. He can very openly say what he feels, I can tell him what I feel.”

Ali says he was genuinely touched by the efforts Salman put in his performance in Sultan. The director will again team up with the 50-year-old Dabangg star in Tiger Zinda Hai and Ali says the duo don’t
have any ego problems between them. “I think it’s a great combination. All those things kind of make you feel special that there is an actor giving 100 percent to you.” The first two were helmed by filmmaker duo Abbas-Mustan. My relationship with him is more like a younger brother. The only film I am doing is Tiger Zinda Hai.” Ali made his debut with Katrina Kaif Imran Khan starrer Mere Brother ki Dulhan but tasted phenomenal success with his last release, Sultan.

Salman Khan – Ali Abbas’s last film Sultan was a blockbuster. I really think he pushed himself very hard in Sultan. “He (Salman) is very open to ideas. Whether it was his training, physical transformation, the Haryanvi language he got. We don’t have any director-actor ego running between us. Director Ali Abbas Zafar says he is right now only focusing on his next Tiger Zinda Hai and not doing any other film amidst reports that he will also helm Race 3. He has so much of experience. Speculation was rife that superstar Salman Khan recommended Ali’s name to direct the third instalment of the popular thriller franchise “Race”.
