Tiger Zinda Hai is a tribute to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The film’s director, Ali Abbas Zafar, has revealed the biggest kept secret of film.
The plot of the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer film is inspired from the 2014 hostage rescue operation that India pulled off to save the lives of 46 of its nurses held captive by the Islamic State (ISIS) in Iraq.
Narendra Modi, who had just assumed the post of Prime Minister when this serious crisis hit his government, pulled all stops to ensure no lives were lost.
Ali was inspired by how the PM handled the situation and he wanted to keep a tribute for the PM in the movie.
“If you have noticed, during the rescue mission in Tiger Zinda Hai, Paresh Rawal asks Tiger (Salman Khan) if ‘PM sahab’ is aware of the mission.
The original dialogue in the film was ‘Modi Ji Ko Pata Hai?’ as a tribute to him and the mission,” Ali revealed.
