Well, seems like our Christmas for this year is sorted. The film stars the superhit jodi of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, who are coming back after five years. They were last seen in the film’s prequel Ek Tha Tiger which was directed by Kabir Khan. The latest one is being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, whose last directorial film Sultan, starring Salman Khan, broke several records at the box office and became one of the highest grossers of 2016.

In a recent interview, he said, “It is a sequel, but it’s too early to talk about it in detail. It’s a political espionage. It’s about spies, what is happening in the world today, where does India stand, what is right, wrong. It’s about all of that.”
While the details of the film are being closely guarded, sources say that Salman Khan may be seen playing a 70-year-old man in the film. Meanwhile, the actor is busy shooting the last leg of Tubelight, which is directed by Bajrangi Bhaijaan helmer Kabir Khan.
