Ali addressed the press after the trailer launch told “There is so much pressure bringing this franchise back, but to be honest, I first thought of the story. Both Salman and Katrina liked the story, and Aditya Chopra suggested we make it as a part of the Tiger franchise. Let me also point out, that Ek Tha Tiger was a romantic film, this is a hard-core action film, where the two actors are agents. It’s a real, gritty drama.”
