Salman Khan & Filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar Have Fallen Out?

Mohnish Singh |Dec 09, 2019

Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar have delivered three blockbusters in the past four years, including “Sultan”, “Tiger Zinda Hai” and “Bharat”. Buzz has it that things are not well between the two anymore.

Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar are one of the most successful actor-director duos of Bollywood. The two have worked together on three blockbusters in four years – Sultan (2016), Tiger Zinda Hai (2017) and Bharat (2019) – and have always struck gold at the box-office. But if latest reports are anything to go by, things are not well between the two anymore.


Yes, you heard it absolutely right! It is unlikely, if not impossible, that Ali Abbas Zafar would return to helm the next instalment of Tiger Zinda Hai with Salman Khan. Zafar used to be one of the most favourite directors of Salman Khan. Then what happened which led to their fall out?

According to reports, Salman Khan and Ali had massive arguments during the shooting of their last film Bharat. A source close to the project tells a publication that Ali Abbas Zafar was willing to concede that Salman had the final word on how the film was to be shot but the director was no novice. Salman’s intervention after every shot did not get down well with the director and the superstar’s ego could not take that.


However, a couple of months ago, Ali had laughed the rumours of a fall-out with Salman Khan away, saying that such rubbish was spread by people who cannot bear to see them sharing such a warm and stress-free rapport for so long. The filmmaker had asserted that there was no stress at all regarding any aspect of the film between the two and that the superstar was very supportive right through the making of not just Bharat but also Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai.

If reports are to be believed, Ali has roped in Shah Rukh Khan for his next directorial offering, while the makers are looking for a new director to take the directorial mental for the next part of Tiger Zinda Hai.
