While the industry is yet to see who emerges victorious in the upcoming titanic clash between Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil, another clash is waiting in the wings to take off.

Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai, Ali Abbas Zafar’s sequel to Kabir Khan’s 2012 blockbuster Ekk Tha Tiger is set to release on December 22 later this year.
