Talking about the buzz the surrounds this spy thriller, Akshaye said, "The buzz is huge surrounding Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai. The first edition of this franchise which was Ek Tha Tiger did phenomenally well when it released. It was, in fact, the highest grossing film for Salman." He further added, "It is one of those larger than life film which people would want ot go to cinemas to watch. The expectations are huge, the kind of content that is out yet; the promos and the songs indicate that this is a true blue treat for Salman Khan fans. And I’m sure that this Friday after a very long gap will witness fireworks at the box office.”
Will Ali Abbas Zafar be able to do justice to the sequel of the 2012 blockbuster, Akshaye explains, "If you look at Ali Abbas Zafar’s track record as a director, he is one of the most commercial-minded filmmakers that we have this in this country. And he is somebody who has a great connect with every section of the social strata as a storyteller. So when it comes to the mass appeal of this film, I’m sure it’s going to be far greater than Ek Tha Tiger. "
