Former couple, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif showcase their breathtaking chemistry in 'Dil Diyan Gallan' from 'Tiger Zinda Hai', a classic love ballad that celebrates the purity of romance

Although Tiger Zinda Hai is essentially a spy thriller that focuses on undercover agents, director Ali Abbas Zafar was certain of incorporating a romantic track in the film - one that would do justice to Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif's effortless on-screen chemistry. Conceived as a love ballad, the track 'Dil Diyan Gallan' released on Saturday, December 2, 2017. The song makes you believe in love all over again and it beautifully showcases the love story of super-spies Tiger and Zoya. While Katrina sizzles fluently as they try their hands at the dance form-waltz, Salman too matched up the steps smoothly with the dancing queen, Katrina. The song makes you believe in love all over again and it beautifully showcases the love.

This classic love ballad celebrates the purity of romance. The two, who have come together on big screens after 5 years, have shot this romantic song in Austria. Salman also showcased his artistic skills in the frozen lake of Austria. The actor drew a beautiful and mesmerising portrait of Katrina in that frozen lake. Composed by Vishal and Shekhar and sung by Atif Aslam, the song's lyrics have been penned by Irshad Kamil. The beautiful song has been choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant.

Sources from the production house reveal that the lead stars had to undergo a 15-day prep before they shot for the number. "It took some time and practice for both Salman and Katrina to learn the waltz. They practised for a fortnight and in the last four days, they had to rehearse extensively with Vaibhavi. Kat was a natural and picked up the steps quickly. She even helped Salman with the steps," says a source. The insider further reveals that shooting in the snow-capped mountains of Austria was an arduous task for the unit.

Zafar says he deliberately chose waltz as it lends the grace and restraint that his characters needed to convey. "We have filmed Dil Diyan Gallan in an old-school manner to capture the beauty of a mature love story. The song comes at a crucial juncture in the film."

The high-octane spy thriller is all slated to hit the screens this Christmas on December 22, 2017.
