Director Ali Abbas Zafar, whose Tiger Zinda Hai has earned more than Rs300 crore so far at the box office, believes it's the "humanity" in the movie that had made it a success. He is charged up to tell more powerful stories now.

Zafar had earlier directed Sultan (2016) for Yash Raj Films, which also backed Tiger Zinda Hai.

Thankful and overwhelmed for the love from audiences and critics, Zafar said in a statement: "I'm glad we have made a film that is entertaining everyone, across all age groups, across the country.

"The success of the film goes to show that the message in our film — humanity above anything else has resonated with everyone. This incredible success gives me the strength and inspiration to write powerful, entertaining stories that evoke a universal emotion."

Tiger Zinda Hai, starring the much-loved on-screen pairing of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, emerged as one of the highest grossing Hindi film of 2017, coming next only to the Hindi dubbed version of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017).
