Audience will soon be watching Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif together again in Bharat. And they are expected to be seen together again in none other than Salman's 'Tiger' series.

Sources close to Salman claim that the actor has asked his loyalist Ali Abbas Zafar to work on a script for him and Katrina. And the script is intended for the next installment of 'Ek Tha Tiger' named 'Tiger 3'.

While there was a gap of five years between 'Ek Tha Tiger' and 'Tiger Zinda Hai', the third film in the franchise will be made sooner as Salman wishes to boost Katrina's career which is much needed for her at this point of time.

In recent times, nothing seems to work for Katrina except the Tiger series, quoted a source. Salman asked Director Ali Abbas to work on Tiger 3 and the work has already begun, he added.

On being asked, director Ali Abbas Zafar confirmed that the scripting of the third Tiger film is in progress. Kabir Khan directed the first film in the 'Tiger' series while the sequel was directed by Salman loyalist Ali Abbas Zafar. Now, with the third film in the series, it looks like the two constant factors in the franchise, besides Salman, are Ali and Katrina.

On the work front, all three, Salman, Katrina and Ali Abbas are busy with their upcoming movie 'Bharat'. While Ali is busy with post-production work, Katrina and Salman are promoting it. 'Bharat' is all set to hit the theatres on June 5.
