Gavie Chahal, who will be seen in Tiger Zinda Hai, was thrilled to be a part of this project after Ek Tha Tiger. The actor says he loved being part of the project as he is aware of the audience's expectations from the film. "It was amazing to rejoin Tiger (Salman Khan) and Zoya (Katrina Kaif). I felt excited, was so enthusiastic and on top of the world. Of course, we all have put in a lot of efforts in the film as we are aware of people's huge expectations from this film," he says.Ek Tha Tiger also gave him some fabulous memories. "It was an amazing project. I got to learn so much from Salman Khan. I still remember how he encouraged us to shoot at 55-60 degree temperature," he says, adding, "He would say focus on your vision, continue to work hard and be extra alert always. But don't put the extra and unwanted burden on yourself."
When asked him how he would differentiate between Kabir Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar as directors, and he says, "Both are great in their creativity. I can't differentiate but yes they both are masters in their work in their own ways and I enjoyed and learned a lot. It was great working with Kabir and Ali sir," he says.
The film has a lot of action sequences, and Gavie has some favourite ones. "I play the same character of ISI agent captain, Abrar, in Tiger Zinda Hai too. So, I already knew the nuances of the character but I still underwent workshops for weapons training, physical strength under Hollywood action director Tom Struthers. There was one big action scene with Salman Khan that fascinated me the most. It was a long sequence which had to be shot in one take and had a lots of blasts. But with the grace of God, we did it perfectly with 1-2 hours of rehearsals in one take," he says.
Elaborating on his
role, he says, "Captain Abrar is a disciplined officer, sharp,
trained ISI agent who loves his country and respects others. For the
love of his country, he can go to any extent."
Well, we wish the actor great success for this film!
