Superstar Salman Khan's upcoming action movie Ek Tha Tiger is all set to release on August 15. There have been much hype surrounding Ek Tha Tiger. Not only that the film is expected to become a blockbuster, but it is also expected to prove the unthinkable at the Box Office by crossing the 200 crore mark. Now, let's talk about a few lesser known facts about the film:
1) Ek Tha Tiger will be Salman Khan's first movie under the Yash Raj banner.
2) The movie was earlier offered to Yash Raj's favourite Shahrukh Khan. Aditya Chopra had approached Shahrukh first for the movie. But, later the film's script suited Salman Khan more than SRK.
3) ETT will get the touch of Hollywood action. Hollywood action director Conrad Palmisano had trained Salman and Katrina Kaif to do some daredevil stunts for the film. Salman will show off his Parkour skills in the movie.
4) Kabir Khan had recently revealed one of the action scenes in Ek Tha Tiger, where Sallu is shown all beaten up. Interestingly, the sequence turned out to be perfect as Salman was in real pain (as he is suffering from nerve disorder problem) while doing it. Hence, Kabir Khan and team were fortunate enough to get some genuine expressions that shows the actor in deep pain.
5) ETT will be Salman, Katrina's first movie after their alleged break up. The last movie that they had done together was Yuvraj.
6) The movie is the most expensive film ever made by the YRF banner with a budget estimated by film trade analysts at Rs 70-80 crore.
7) Salman had made a record by scoring century in his last three movies. As per predictions, if ETT too manages to register its name in the powerful 100 crore club, Salman is for sure to make a history in Bollywood.
8) Ek Tha Tiger will be Salman Khan's fourth consecutive Eid release after Wanted, Dabangg and Bodyguard.
9) There are high chances that Ek Tha Tiger might break Aamir Khan's 3 Idiots' Box Office record of Rs 385 crore.
10) Salman Khan plays the role of a spy in the film, which is very different and 'unpredictable', as revealed by the actor himself. Hence, this unpredictable character of Sallu will raise the public curiosity to know more about him.
