Audiences and fans cannot stop gushing about Salman Khan’s drool-worthy physique in Tiger Zinda Hai. In fact, the star is looking his fittest best as he becomes the super spy, Tiger. We have just learned that it took 3 months of rigorous training to get him ready for the film and his training contined during the shoot.
Director Ali Abbas Zafar revealed that Salman’s training and diet regime for Tiger Zinda Hai was very inspiring. “Salman has really pushed himself for the part. It is incredible and inspiring to see the biggest superstar of the country go through the grind every single day to maintain the awe-inspiring fitness levels that he has for Tiger,” he says.
For the film, Salman did the jaw-dropping, death-defying stunts all by himself in harsh weather conditions whether in the deserts in the Middle East or in sub-zero temperature when he shot in the Alps and that required preparation and ultimate fitness.
The director adds, “Salman trained, actually we should say he has killed himself for about 3 months at the gym before the shoot began. Altitude training is something that Salman had to do given the fact that we were shooting in the Alps and pulling off some daring stunts with him. During the shoot, be it the middle of a desert or on top of the snow-capped mountains; Salman was training every day. He used to ride his cycle to the set and we all know it’s not easy to cycle in such harsh environments. He used to easily ride for more than 10 kilometres every-day to get to the set. He had worked out his own exercise regime given the limited options. Salman’s diet was incredible. His diet kept him light and agile and he paid minute attention to whatever he was eating. The cheat day came in the last schedule of Greece!”
Yash Raj Films’ mega-action entertainer, Tiger Zinda Hai, is set to release on 22nd December 2017.
