Ali Abbas Zafar says Tiger Zinda Hai gives the message of love and humanity. This is your second blockbuster with Salman Khan after Sultan. Excerpts from the interview:
Did you expect Tiger Zinda Hai to be so successful? So Mashallah, I am happy and I wish all the love and happiness to everyone. I hope there will be more successful films in 2018. Apparently, it is a remake of a Korean film. I am just four films old. What do you think makes Tiger Zinda Hai so connectible with the audience, specially at a time when all diplomatic efforts to bring India and Pakistan together have failed? What more can I wish for? I feel God has been very kind to me. My equation with Salman is what the success of the film validates. How do you see your journey so far? (The year) 2017 was a year of huge flops and disappointments. He is like an elder brother to me. The film’s message is of universal value: humanity is above all. Salman Khan, Katrina and the whole team of Tiger Zinda Hai. As far as Bharat is concerned, we have worked thoroughly on making it a work founded on Indian history and the adaptation of text would be fully researched. Well, we have worked really hard. Well, as I said Salman and I work very well together. I think the idea of love is universal and peace and brotherhood is the core of our existence. You started with Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. We believed in our story.
