Kabir Khan has directed Ek Tha Tiger(2012) and Ali Abbas Zafar helmed Tiger Zinda Hai(2017), now Band Baaja Baraat fame Maneesh Sharma roped to sit on the director’s chair for Tiger Zinda Hai 3. According to latest report of Mid-day, the producers wanted a fresh director for the third film in this action franchise and they hope that Maneesh is the right choice.
Kabir Khan directed Tubelight in 2017 which earned around 121 crores nett in India and turned out to be a flop. On the other hand, Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat movie was hit by earning 211 crores. Still, we all expect Salman Khan films to cross 300 crores each. May be, by looking at the last film scores of both the directors, YRF want to try a new director and they have chalked it out Maneesh Sharma.
Well if you still don’t know much about Maneesh than let me tell you, Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl(2011), Shuddh Desi Romance(2013), and Fan in 2016. Tiger 3 would be his next film after Fan, which is a gap of almost 4 years.
Will Maneesh Sharma able to deliver a much needed 300 crores film for Salman Khan? The answer can’t be clear as he didn’t directed a full-on action film so far like Tiger franchise. So, it is really hard to predict about his direction for this action film. Still, YRF has taken the risk and we hope that he delivers up to the mark.
Tiger 3 reportedly being announced on Yash Raj Films 50th anniversary or on Yash Chopra birthday on September 27.
