Waiting for the Tiger
The second half of 2012 will offer a slew of interesting films from Bollywood but nothing matches the curiosity kicked up by the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Ek Tha Tiger, not even Shahrukh Khan’s film with Kat.
That’s the verdict given by our readers in the new ApunKaChoice poll in which we asked the Bollywood buffs to pick the film that tops their wishlist. Though spoilt for choice, we picked just six big banner projects including Ek Tha Tiger, Talaash, Joker, Dabangg 2, Barfi! and the yet-untitled film starring Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
In the votes that we got, the competition was pretty nip and tuck between Ek Tha Tiger and the Shahrukh-Katrina film, with the latter leading the poll for a considerable time. But eventually, it is Salman Khan fans who prevailed and Ek Tha Tiger emerged the most eagerly awaited film of 2012 with 43 percent of the total 2362 votes cast.
The film, slated to release on August 15, is riding high on buzz thanks to the rivetingly sleek trailer and the first song ‘Mashallah’ that have been released by the production house Yash Raj Films.
In the movie, Salman Khan plays a RAW agent on a special mission in which he has to keep a close watch on a dance instructor played by Katrina Kaif. However, when the handsome spy falls in love with her, he finds himself in a sticky situation where he has to choose between his duty and his love. The film’s trailers have been banned in Pakistan because the country’s media watchdog considered it’s content derogatory to Pak’s spy agency ISI.
