Tiger Zinda Hai is all about Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif as they play agents from RAW and ISI respectively. On the occasion, they have been assigned a mission to rescue 40 nurses from the clutch of ISIS, a terrorist group. ISIS has taken the nurses as hostage. Among the 40 nurses, 25 belong to India and other comes from Pakistan.
If you have already watched the movie then you may known about Anupriya Goenka. In the movie, Anupriya is a nurse with brave heart that offers support to Salman Khan during his rescue mission. During an interview, she has been asked regarding the success of movie and she has said “That might sound very narcissist. You can definitely say Anupriya’s hard work has paid off so far, it is looking good. That’s it.”
She has also added “It is obviously very overwhelming, it’s a lot to take but at the same time it’s really exciting. I had gone to Chandan theater (in Mumbai) for its screening on the second day and I wasn’t expecting anyone to notice me, but it was beautiful how people surrounded me, asked for pictures and acknowledged and appreciated my work.”
To do the role perfectly, she has done a lot of training. About the time of training, she has said “Those two months of shooting in Abu Dhabi were very tough. It was such an intense character, I was always in that zone, thinking about terror. There were times when it gets into you, you start imagining death. I remember for my bomb scene where there is a bomb strapped on me, I was preparing for it for two days and by the end of it I started getting these nightmares that I am dying and I won’t be able to see my family tomorrow. It does get difficult at times.”
Regarding the privilege of working with Salman Khan, she has said “I have learned so much. When you see him in person, you realise why he is called ‘Bhai’, why there is so much of love and affection for him. He has this presence, this aura, this sort of a divine personality and he is very giving as a human being, extremely supportive to newcomers specially. He would guide us, he would tell us what to do and he would make us comfortable. Sometimes when people give you suggestions they are kind of making you nervous, you wonder whether you are doing something wrong. But when Salman gives you suggestions, it just ups your energy level, your enthusiasm and encourages you. And he has this whole body language that you can just go to him for anything and if there is anything going wrong, he will take care of it.”
