New Delhi: Katrina Kaif is training super hard for her upcoming film Tiger Zinda Hai, co-starring Salman Khan. Katrina will reprise the role of Zoya, a rogue Pakistani spy, in the film directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. For certain action sequences, stunt directors from Hollywood have been hired to coach Katrina Kaif. According to an Indian Express report, Tom Struthers and Buster Reeves, who have choreographed action sequences in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, are closely working with Katrina for the stunts and the action scenes of Tiger Zinda Hai. The film is a sequel to Salman and Katrina's Ek Tha Tiger (2012), which was directed by Kabir Khan.

Pictures from the sets of Tiger Zinda Hai have reached the Internet. In some of the pics, Katrina can be seen practicing fencing while in another picture she is learning how to use a machine gun. Here's a glimpse of Katrina Kaif from the sets of Tiger Zinda Hai:
"Director Ali Abbas Zafar has committed to deliver action, stunts and fight sequences that will compete with global standards with Tiger Zinda Hai. Given Struthers shot for certain action sequences for Christopher Nolan's Batman films including The Dark Knight Rises, expect the absolute best from these scenes. There are also stuntmen from France, UK and Spain involved in this portion, which is quite elaborate," a source told Indian Express.
Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan have filmed certain portions of Tiger Zinda Hai in Austria and Abu Dhabi. Director Ali Abbas Zafar shared pics from Tiger Zinda Hai's Austria leg, which showed Salman and Katrina dressed for a ball, unlike these latest behind-the-scenes pics.
In Ek Tha Tiger, Avinash Singh Rathore aka Tiger (Salman Khan), who is an Indian spy, falls in love with Zoya (Katrina), his Pakistani counterpart. When their respective governments take a call to eliminate their rogue spies, Tiger and Zoya elope.
