Salman Khan developed health issue during Tiger Zinda Hai shoot, reveals director Ali Abbas Zafar"What we see onscreen might look a lot easier than it actually is. Sometimes, sequences like the ones shot in Austria can be difficult to achieve", said the filmmaker.
At a time when Salman Khan fans are eagerly waiting to see the superstar sizzle on the big screens, director Ali Abbas Zafar has revealed that the Dabangg Khan is not been keeping well. Challenging weather conditions in Austria during the shoot of Tiger Zinda Hai led to a health issue for actor Salman Khan, said the filmmaker.
Talking about shooting for the film in the locales of Austria, Zafar said in a statement: "What we see onscreen might look a lot easier than it actually is. Sometimes, sequences like the ones shot in Austria can be difficult to achieve.
"For a significant chapter in 'Tiger Zinda Hai', we had to film in a place that had a certain amount of aloofness and isolation. We found that spot in the mountains of Austria, a place where time seemed to stand still and frozen.
"Shooting here meant dealing with unexpected situations. Literally a lot of pain had gone behind this sequence. Salman developed a health issue, but he still trained to film here and delivered on a tough action sequence."
The team shot a song there.
"We had expertise on our side, since we worked with an international crew that has worked on the latest James Bond film 'Spectre'. In the end, as a team, we are fairly satisfied that we managed to film here successfully," he added.
"Tiger Zinda Hai", which also stars Katrina Kaif, is a sequel to "Ek Tha Tiger". It is slated to release on December 22, and has been shot across five countries.
