Remember the movie "Ek Tha Tiger" starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif? It was a huge hit! But here's a surprising fact: the two actors were no longer together by the time filming started. The director, Kabir Khan, recently shared that Salman and Katrina had actually broken up just before signing on for the movie. Even though they were exes, Kabir Khan, along with producer Aditya Chopra, were still able to get them both to star in the film, which became the first movie in the popular Tiger series.

In a conversation with Mashable India’s The Bombay Dreams, Kabir Khan said, “We were going back from Salman’s house. This was the day Salman finally said yes that we were doing the film. Katrina had already signed the film. She was Zoya.”

“Katrina is just like a family to me. She is extremely close to Mini (Mathur), kids and me. Vicky is also now an integral part of our family. And then we went to Salman. This was the stage when they had broken up, so it wasn't comfortable. I told him I wanted Katrina and he knew my connection with her, he further added.

Kabir went on to state, “Adi (Aditya Chopra) and I were driving back from Salman’s place Galaxy (apartment) to Yash Raj studios and we were silent because we had just cast Salman Khan for the first time for Tiger (Ek Tha Tiger), Katrina was (already) there. I think for about 5-10 mins we kept silent and then he said, ‘yaar bahot badi casting hai (Friend, this is an incredible casting)’.”
