Katrina Kaif is working hard for her role in the upcoming film Tiger Zinda Hai. In fact, she has even hobnobbed with real spies and trained in hand-to-hand combat to get the nuances of Zoya, the super spy she plays in the Salman Khan-starrer, just right.

While we have to wait for the film to see how much of the hard work translates on to the screen, here’s a peek of her deadly look in Tiger Zinda Hai.

Director Ali Abbas Zafar in a press statement has also shared how hard Katrina is working for the film.

“In this film, Zoya plays a super spy. It was essential to understand how such agents think and operate. So, we got Katrina to train with real agents, used their expertise and experience. For instance, as intelligence agents, you have to train a certain way to keep your mental balance in direst situations. Say you face someone who has a gun and you don’t. How do you still stay neutral and calm, and figure out the best possible way to counter and survive in such a situation? Katrina has really pushed herself for the part. She has also gone the extra mile to train in important nuances like aggressive hand-to-hand combat. The action that Katrina has done looks very real on screen, despite being mounted on a grand scale.

Tiger Zinda Hai releases on December 22.
