Imran Abbas supports Salman Khan's 'Tiger Zinda Hai'

The Khuda aur Mohabbat actor wants 'Tiger Zinda Hai' to release in Pakistan and has good wishes for the film

Imran Abbas, the name needs no introduction. The handsome hunk rules hearts in Pakistan and of course across the border as well. With major Pakistani dramas to his credit including the very recent Khuda aur Mohabbat and Mohabbat Tumse Nafrat Hai, it won't be incorrect to say that Imran Abbas is the finest choice when it comes to romance on Pakistani television.

The actor, has yet to debut in a Pakistani film, although he has enjoyed his Bollywood releases alongside Bipasha Basu in Creature and also a cameo in Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Muhskil.

The reason for stating this is the fact the Imran Abbas, one of the most sought after actors in the country, takes great pride in sharing what impresses him and what doesn't and this time, Imran has been impressed by Salman Khan starrer Tiger Zinda Hai's trailer.

It should be noted that Tiger Zinda Hai’s prequel, directed by Kabir Khan, Ek Tha Tiger did not manage to see the light of the day in Pakistan; a major market for Bollywood films. The ban was owed to the fact that the film showed Pakistan in a negative light and therefore was not approved by the censor board.

The sequel, however, focuses on a story where Salman Khan plays an Indian spy trying to save 25 Indian nurses who have taken been hostage by a terrorist group, while Katrina Kaif, his love interest, tries to assist him in the task.

Taking to his Twitter, Imran Abbas shared how the trailer of the film had managed to impress him and that he would like the film to be released very much in Pakistan.

Tiger Zinda Hai is all set for a worldwide release on December 22nd. While Pakistan will see one of its major films Rangreza releasing on 21st December, the fate of Tiger Zinda Hai will be decided by the censor board about whether they let the film run in theatres this time or its goodbye to Salman Khan once again after Tubelight earlier this year. Here's to hoping Imran's wish is granted this time.
