Salman Khan will next be seen with his ex-flame Katrina Kaif in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tiger Zinda Hai which is the sequel to the 2012 blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger. But the superstar surprised his huge number of Twitter followers by name-calling Katrina.
The actor shared his picture with the actress captioned, “I'm such a big Tubelight that I just got to know that Tiger's tigress is a Thug.”
It wasn’t long before Salman’s followers realized that this is Bhaijaan’s way of congratulating and sending good wishes to Katrina for bagging Yash Raj Films’ much talked-about Thugs Of Hindostan (2018), which stars Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Fatima Sana Shaikh.

The news of the actress bagging the film was out on Thursday. As Salman claimed that he came to know about it just yesterday, he referred himself as ‘Tubelight,’ which, in a way, is also a promotion of his next film of the same name.
Thugs Of Hindostan brings back the Dhoom 3 (2013) trio of Aamir, Katrina and director Vijay Krishna Acharya. The film will be released on Diwali 2018.
Another funny social media moment took place between Salman and Katrina yesterday as they were shooting Tiger Zinda Hai. Ali Abbas Zafar shared a picture of the two of them on his Instagram page. In the picture, Katrina seems to be photobombing Salman.
