I’m glad we have made a film that is entertaining everyone, across all age groups, across the country. The success of the film goes to show that the message in our film – humanity above anything else has resonated with everyone. This incredible success gives me the strength and inspiration to write powerful, entertaining stories that evoke a universal emotion.”
Tiger Zinda Hai is also the highest grossing Hindi film of 2017. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, YRF’s Tiger Zinda Hai has been riding on incredibly positive audience reviews and it had shattered several box office records within the first week of its release.
