Tiger Zinda Hai, the action mega entertainer from Yash Raj Films, has wowed everyone first with its record-smashing trailer and then its blockbuster love song, Dil Diyan Gallan. If you haven’t seen it yet, the song features the two superstars in their most
romantic song to date. And the highlight of the song is Salman painting a portrait of Katrina on ice. Talk about freezing a moment in time.
Director Ali Abbas Zafar sums it up as “It is a romantic track that captures the beauty of a mature love story. We have filmed Dil Diyan Gallan in an old school, vintage way to bring alive the romance that two mature people share. It is like a classic Yash Chopra song.”
Just like filming for action sequences on this remote Austrian mountainside had its challenges, shooting this ballad didn’t come easy either. Ali adds, “Salman and Katrina shot this song on some very difficult terrain in the Alps. The biggest highlight in this song is the unique Katrina portrait that he has drawn on a frozen lake. We had to shoot on this lake and Salman converted it to a canvas.
We had to source natural colours, as ice doesn’t catch all kinds of paints, which didn’t come easy. But once we got hold of this, he created a huge 20 feet by 20 feet portrait
that features Katrina’s face. It’s a sight for sore eyes, this painting, and it makes Dil Diyan Gallan a truly unique romantic song visually.” Salman and Katrina’s scorching
chemistry has become the talk of the town. Their onscreen romance makes Tiger Zinda Hai even more anticipated.
